For months now I have looked at the cover of the book Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper and felt a need for me not to waste the life God has given me. I am a whiner for sure...constantly complaining about something: the house being dirty, the boys not obeying, not moving and the list goes on on. I don't want to be that way.
This morning as I looked at my blog list, I went to one of my favorite blogs and she had a post about Wise-Worded Women and a link to this very powerful video. This is a great video but with a warning, it is very sad. The woman speaking, Rachel, has terminal cancer and only has a short time to live. It spoke to my heart.....it's not my life to live but for me to live a life of service with joy for God's glory. How easy it is to forget the joy part. May God change my heart to one of joy.
As we drove home, this time from our trip to see family.(It's always nice to see everyone.) I was reminded how blessed we are for the church that God has placed us in and especially our caregroup. And their desire to be more like Jesus. It is so refreshing.......it's so different than the world's view. Thanks guys for encouraging us and your love of the Lord!! May we grow together for God's Glory!!
