Day 20: Watch for Instructions
Today started rather early and I was on the go from the moment my feet hit the floor. However as I awoke I was on the lookout for Abba's request or instructions. As I had many things that kept me going at mach speed today, I was constantly aware that I had not heard anything yet. Later in the day when there was a rather big misunderstanding between my man and me - I heard His voice. "Be Still, just listen, and give him understanding and your attention." My thought was that I would much rather air my side of the situation. Instead I listened, shared briefly and then did everything I could to create a happy memory day. Now why would I rather be "right" (or not) or make sure my side was presented well when I could be a peace maker and not waste precious time proving my point of view.
Matthew 5:9 - Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.
Oh what a sweet hug that was. I was remembering this scripture wrong and thought that peacemakers were the ones that inherited the earth but I AM A CHILD OF GOD.
By the way - did anybody notice I didn't eat chocolate today? I don't think anybody even cared - including Abba
