Dishes half completed, I did make dinner 2 nights in a row (and pretty good dinner I must add). Fed kids and had them actually dressed down for bed (not going to sleep in clothes they were already wearing) all before 7 p.m., wow feeling accomplished! Living Room looks like a throw blanket exploded mixed with towels because kids decided the towels that have been in a basket for three days needed to be part of the explosion. Is this your house or just mine? That seems like that one week out of the month you actually caught up just went to the curb. Now back to square one of laundry for DAYSSSS and dishes that never end, floors dirty, and fans dusty (HAHA, who cleans those now days).
I would love to tell you that through all this mess Gods been speaking to me about how to be more organized and in control of the cleanness of my home. He hasn’t… I don’t know why, I have been waiting for God’s word telling me to kick it in gear, just haven’t seen or heard him speak to me yet or give me new ideas yet. What God has been speaking about is being Spiritually Prepared for anything.
You see, all this mess and time constraining things that need to be done can sometimes take us out of the ‘Spiritual Realm’ (lets call it that). I feel like God is just in this place of keeping me centered in him, but first he’s needing my full attention. Like place everything away and focus on me attention. (Disclaimer: Not saying I’m just being super lazy in the realm but just not on top of my game & forgetting God). Hmmm. Let’s dive into those last two words of disclaimer ‘forgetting God’. Is that pulling a string in your spirit right now? It does me.
Every time I get into a mode of being the best Wife/Mother/House Cleaner, I can’t seem to add God into what I do every day. Lets be transparent (as my friend Jocelin would say) ITS HARDDD Y’ALLL! I don’t understand how to manage this? To have a SOLD OUT relationship with GOD and be all the things above… pulling a string or two again. Yeah that’s where Gods had me, pulling a whole yarn ball out of my Spirit showing me that I can manage this all and be on FIRE for HIM! BUT FIRST he needs to know where my faith stands (Col.2:6 AMP). Are you regulating your life and conducting yourself to be in union with him? Pause. Read that question again until you know the true answer. I will wait with you, my words wont go anywhere… Union Definition: ‘the Action or Fact of joining or being joined’. Y’all it’s an action of joining in with God in your life and conducting yourself to be SOLD OUT, ON FIRE, FEARLESS all while managing all the steps of a Wife/Mother/House Cleaner. If I can’t find a way to be Sold out, on FIRE, and Fearless while managing my duties I have been given, I will lose focus on the target, GOD! WHEW, I’m on fire typing this PRAISE JESUS! It makes me want to praise to the whole new Album by Lindy Conant and clean like never before, because he has been showing me new eyes to see why I am in the place I am in. You are in the place you are supposed to be, Your book of life is open and God is ready to show you whats inside. You have got to be willing to be on fire for him while doing the task. If you lose that fire, set that task down for a second and get that fire lit up again!
If you keep going and let the fire die down then you are not spiritually prepared for what God has waiting for you behind that next door. Then comes the questioning God like why me, I’m not ready can I just go back and finish this first (Luke 9:61)… That’s not a fun place to be in, trust me I know. If you’re in this place right now I pray this is igniting the fire that has been put out. When your fire is lit and on FIRE you are in the Realm waiting on Gods next move and prepared for what he has on top of what you already are doing. Cause our God is so good he will make a way, when the fire is down then you’re not understanding how this will be able to happen.
So, put the praise music on and start letting those time-consuming things bow to the name of Jesus don’t let them control what God wants to do for you. Get spiritually prepared he’s about release something that you thought wasn’t possible, but through God all things are possible (Matt. 19:26).
