All You Do

Sometimes I wonder what I do all day and whether or not it really matters. For years I was a stay-at-home-(homeschooling)-mom. Loads of work! As each child got older, and entered school I became more of a taxi driver and over-seer.
I was walking just yesterday evening, working a crick out of my back after sitting and sewing, when a text came through. A dear friend asked if I could ride with her out of town the next day to pick up a granddaughter for a family friend who has an ailing grandpa. Why not?!
After 30 minutes of fast texting to several of my children… trying to rearrange and juggle all of my daily obligations (!!), I got the notice the granddaughter had been offered another way home. Whew.
Then I just started laughing.
Funny how God used one moment, one situation to set me straight! I began listing all I had accomplished just that day -instead of all I had not finished. How interesting. I needed a reminder that what I do matters! I can’t do everything, but as I offer myself to God, I am doing enough. 
It’s all about being who He made me to be… giving all of me to Him… for His Glory... doing the next thing presented… with a good attitude… no matter what’s laid out. Ready and willing. That is enough.
“Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD ’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to GOD! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor GOD with everything …  give Him the first and the best. Proverbs 3:5-9  MSG
ForGlorySake! –Anna
