A Promise Made is…

broken. I know I was going to post about my vacation with my family. I promised in my other blog. I will, soon.  I always believed “A promise made is a debt unpaid” so it will happen.

There has been much going on inside me that I still can’t put into words. I am thinking much, discouraged about things in the world, in churches and in my own life. As I read and learn more and more of what God says I see how much I lack in my life and see how much the churches today are pulling away from Doctrine and what God’s word teaches and going the way of the world, but with a tone that sounds like it is right.

The Bible talks of the last days and what will happen to churches, pastor’s and people. Folks we are there! Frankly, it is both scary and exciting! Do you realize our Savior could call us from the clouds and we could be on our way up to meet Him in the air? This is next on the agenda!

Today I was reading in Colossians and came to this verse:

Colossians 3:17  “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

The bold is mine. Think about your day, your thoughts, your words and your deeds. What have you done in His name? Everything we do should be done in His Name. EVERYTHING! We so often categorize things. Some we just do not think about doing for the Lord. When we clean, who are we doing it for? Should be done to please HIM.

This chapter is interesting as from here it goes on to talk about family relations as well and then says:

Whatever you do, do your work heartily as for the Lord rather than men; knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.  (verse 23-24).

Read the verses in between as well, but I want to hit on what we do, all we do, whether it be cleaning the toilet, making dinner or teaching Sunday School. Who are you doing it for?

We represent the Lord in all we do if we are saved. He is coming again, and the way the world is setting up it will be soon. Are you ready? IS what you are doing today something you will be pleased to be doing when HE comes? Will the things on your computer please HIM?  Or the things under your mattress? Hiding in your garage?  Or the attitude when you obey your husband? Or your lack of respect for your husband?

Remember: All we do is for Him, and we will face HIM for all we do. Let’s do all to please Him!

A Sonic Lesson

We went to Sonic for breakfast on our way to do our cleaning job. I have always liked the Sonic breakfast burrito and was looking forward to it as we had not had it for a long time.

We ordered our usual, one sausage burrito for my husband and a bacon burrito for me. We waited, and waited a bit more. Our Sonic built a new building and fancy looking drive up areas as well as a drive thru now. Ever since the improvements they are slow slow slow. We have not been able to figure it out, but it is now slow fast food.

A hint may have come with our breakfast burritos. They finally came to the window and said that they were sorry it was taking longer (as if the normal long wait was not something to apologize for) but, here is the kicker, ” we had to use REAL EGGS for the bacon burrito since we ran out of our mix. Apology for real eggs?  What is this world coming to?

I wonder how many times we are a fake, pretending to be the real thing? How about our walk with the Lord? Our being a “good Christian Wife”. Sonic made me think. I am asking myself and asking the Lord to show me, the places I am apologizing for the real thing.  When I take a Biblical stand, do I apologize to others for being real? Or do I keep my mouth shut and act like the fake is reality? Many times when we take a “real” stand we are criticized and made to feel like we should apologize for being real. Being Biblical. Being open about what God says.  I do not want to apologize for being the real thing when it comes to my Christianity.

How about you?
