The Right Stuff

Sometimes, I waste too much time. I have funky days when I’m tired or moody or downright depressed, and I end up being no good to anyone. I'm missing all the right stuff.

Besides doing my best to make the next day better, I found something out recently that helped me forgive myself for those off days.

Here’s what I learned…

Doing right lasts longer than a day.

Yes, one bad day can ruin a reputation.

But a reputation built up over time, tested and true, can influence in ways you can’t even know about, even on the bad days.

You never know who’s watching and listening… your marriage, your work ethic, your language, your manners… or when your example makes a difference in someone else’s life.

Here’s the key – seek first God’s kingdom.

I don’t do right because people might be watching.

I do right because I love God and because He first loved me.

All glory to God if that causes another soul to turn into His embrace.

And if I have a bad day, then I depend on God’s grace and marvel at how He continues to shine through. After all, His righteousness is all that counts in the end. (Isa. 64:6)

Today, I covet your prayers as I attempt to “nest” in 850 Sq. Ft. J It’s temporary, but a challenge nonetheless.

Thanks for visiting Dry Ground! God Bless your week!

Prayers your way sister. And I think others learn more about our relationship with God when we don't do right than when we do.

I think we can all get inspired by someone who knows they are wrong or tripped up or given up hope and turned to Him for healing.

I know have struggled in the past few days and feel distant from Him, but He will never leave us nor forsake us. . .that, He promised. So I let go and let Him help find that path back to the straight and narrow highway which we all try to traverse.

I hope you are snug in your 850 sq. ft. Just think that He is hugging you a little tighter today that is why you are in a smaller space LOL

I pray you have a great day in Austin girl :)(I have an interview today - pray for me
