except God


How many times have i started a blog post like this? Here it goes again...

So, I was cleaning my floors (again)....and a thought came to me. A question that I think God put on my heart.

What if no one ever thought of me as successful again? What if no one noticed me or thought I was important. Ever. No one. Except God. What would that feel like? Would that be enough? Would it change the way I make my decisions? What would it do to pride? And so many more....they just keep coming and coming.

This week, I feel like I have a little clarity. Honestly, I feel like I often have none, so this is pretty crucial to record. It is so easy for me to forget what I'm doing and I confuse my life with things that don't matter. But it is SO simple. Kind of. Sort of. But I think if I step back and take a look at the big picture, it really can be.

Love God. Love other people.

Simple, right? ;)

Matthew 22:37 (The Message)

37-40Jesus said, "'Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.' This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: 'Love others as well as you love yourself.' These two commands are pegs; everything in God's Law and the Prophets hangs from them."

Yes, beloved daughter, you speak words of truth. So simple to say, so hard to live.
You and God have a history of communing over floors :)
But...I do believe you've got it!

How'd you get so wise, sister? And I echo mom...there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I dream of being the kind of mom you are, the kind of friend you are. Yes sassypants, you are certainly successful, in God's eyes and in mine :)

Oh boy - I needed to hear this. I think if I lived the truth I say I believe - that God's thought of me is the only one that matters, that if He thinks of me that's all... then I would make different decisions sometimes and it would really help me to be humble. Anyway, I hope that makes sense - thanks friend.
