Well, in order to accomplish anything big we need to be accountable to somebody. There are some changes I would like to see take place in my everyday life, but it requires me to try some new things. Now, I don't know if it's the season for these changes but I feel like it is. I feel like this is the season where God is gentlly nudging me out of my comfort zone in different ways.
But, I have to confess that I'm one of those people that starts things when I'm all excited, and then when the excitement starts to fade and life gets in the way, I let those things fall away. The scripture text below describes me in many areas of life:
But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while.
I am asking God to forgive me for this and help me to become the person in the scripture text below:
23 But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
There are some things that I want to step out and do and I don't know if it's the season for these things or that God wants me to do it in these ways, but I'm going to find out. Sometimes you have to step out on faith even when you don't have all the answers. I want to start being more productive at home so I have more freedom with my children and others, so I'm going to do the Flylady Challenge. Go to Flylady.net to see what I'm talking about. I've tried her program before but never stuck to it. Maybe it's not God's plan or maybe I just did not endure for long enough. But I know if the Lord decides to breathe on this for me it could totally change my life and change me. That's my post for today. This is the season of going from the person who has no root in himself to being the person the bears fruit and produces. Time to move forward and test the plan of God in this area of my life.
