I woke up this morning feeling very tired. I woke Dolph up so he could make breakfast as is his usual Saturday morning blessing to us. He has to meet with our Senior Pastor, Pastor Edward Magras at 8am at the church so they could go together to a pastors and ministers prayer breakfast at the Governor's residence in Catherineberg. Brushed teeth, put in a load of laundry. Hubby asked me to get his outfit ready for him which truth be told if I had been doing due diligence in my role as his wife I would have had that done already and he would not have had to ask me to do it.(Head hung in shame). Forgive me Lord. I am really sorry for not doing what I am supposed to do. Thank you for your forgiveness.
Hubby then asked me to put on a CD of one my favorite artists-Chevelle Franklin-he wanted to hear the song Kill My Flesh. Now this is where it gets interesting. The Lord used that song to move me to tears, the song was on replay and I just kept crying and worshipping God. I don't know what was happening but I was just convicted about my acting in the flesh. When I asked the Lord to forgive me just now in the post, that was when the conviction lifted and I felt a release. O Father God please help me to walk in the Spirit at all times and do the things that you have put before me.
As I type this I am eating a plate of cornmeal porridge, deliciously made by my darling husband. There are a few things that I want to accomplish today. Among them is the final touches on my sermon for Sunday evening at church. The Lord has graciously given me the opportunity again to speak to the congregation. The message he gave me was about choices. On a subsequent post maybe tomorrow I will post the message.
I also need to finish preparing materials for the boys homeschool. Clothes to fold. Tomorrow's lunch to start preparing. Clothes to hang out to dry. Saturdays are usually relaxed. I try to schedule my work in such a way that Saturdays & Sundays remain relatively free. The only reason I have to do laundry and fold clothes today is because I have a build up from not doing it as I should have about 2 weeks ago. I plan to rest alot today because when I am this tired I am cranky and my tolerance level is lower so things that would not normally irritate me would irritate me.
Bye for now
Have a fruitful day. Multiply what the Lord has put in your hand and glorify Him.
