Not Me Monday!???

Thanks, MckMama for bringing this back! Don't forget to stop by her place to see what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

As for me?

Well, this week, I did not spend so many hours traveling on a plane that I actually enjoyed getting frisked by airport security in Germany because it felt like a massage!

Um... I think that will suffice for what I have not done this week.


It is so strange to be back to reality where I have to think about a house to clean, bills to pay, work to go to, books to buy for my class, dogs to pick up from the boarder, a house to clean... oh sorry, did I mention that already? It's really bad. Like the doors of the airplane ripped off and blew through the place.

I must admit that I feel different than I did when I left. I guess it's good to break up the routine every now and again. Before our little vacation, I had definitely settled in to my life and was kind of just going through the motions. Especially in my spiritual life. Do you ever feel like that?

So, I'm changing things up a little. I put away some of the devotionals I had been using, pulled out one that I have not seen in quite awhile, and am praying that God will speak to me in new and fresh ways.

Yesterday, He reminded me that I am His representative. Everything I do is in His name. Am I representing Him well? Is He pleased with what I do? Can others see Him in me?

Makes me stop and think twice.

LORD, please forgive me for falling short of Your best for me and for just going through the motions.

What about you? Are you His representative? Can others see Him in you... or are you just going through the motions?

Think about it. What if we had given everything?

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...

***Don't forget to pray for someone today!

1st time visitor. I will be following now. I love what you have to say. It is so great to meet a new Sister in Christ. Thanks for the reminder to get back on track. My last Bible study ended about 2 weeks ago and have not been in the Word nearly as much as I should.

Glad you are back on track as I once was told with Jesus we can do anything and without we are lost in a world where nothing seems possible

I have battled that "going through the motions" dilemma many times. I'm so glad the Lord is so merciful and faithful to draw us back to Him. Welcome back!

Wow, I loved what you wrote today. Reminding me to look for a fresh word and encouraging me to look at my life...every area...and see if I am living a life worthy of being His representative.

So thankful your trip was a blessing and that the Lord kept you safe. Can't wait to hear stories you have to share!

Blessings to you,

well I clicked on here because somehow, you were the first to post on Mr. Linky :) but, I love the initials for your name (best bagel on the planet) and totally bonded w/ your blog. They play that song here a lot, and everytime I'm constantly reminded to not go through the motions :) love that song.
