For an audience of ONE

lately, I have had to examine my motives

Why do I do the things I do?

you probably have it all together and dont ever find yourself perplexed as to why you do the things you do.... but yeah, I have, this week....

thought about it, that is....

and I know the ONLY one that should matter is Jesus. But sometimes.... I get caught up so far in myself that I forget that.

But I will choose to be a worshipper who will not allow myself to be defeated. I long for my life to be an offering to God. All of it.
I want my fire for God not just to be a spark thats embers glow a bit, but ablaze for all to see only so that I can glorify my Father in heaven.

Oh Lord, let me be THAT kind of worshipper.

living to please the Lord...

and constantly reminded that I do it all for an audience of One.

so small

lately I have been overwhelmed with the little things....

schoolwork not getting completed
dishes in the sink for a meal or two too long
mounds of laundry (ya know, with 9 people living in the same house)
kids not listening or obeying as soon as I ask

and then I read Heather's journey with Emma Grace

or Ashleigh's journey as she heads into another long deployment

or my dear friend Casey's journey in the past few weeks as her family was surprised by her 7 yr old daughter's sudden paralysis

and then.
my world seems so perfect...
so rather than blogging...
I have been praying for them.

a fellow blogger ~ Heather ~ is going through a rough time. Her daughter Emma Grace is still in the hospital after 6 weeks...

Would you please go to your prayer closet and petition our Holy God on this families behalf with me and my family.
