Do you struggle with serving two masters?
Matthew 6:24 (NLT) says ‘No one can serve two masters, For you will hate the one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.‘
I don’t know about you, but for me some days it does seem that I am struggling with this. I totally plan to get up and have my quiet time with God. To get up, get my smoothie fixed and go to my quiet space and get my devotional book and my Bible and curl up in the Word and in His presence, that is my plan. Those days are the very best days for me!
Those days when I do that, I start off with a pre-study prayer and then read my devotional and delve deeper into His Word. I spend more time in thought about what I was studying and then in prayer for Thanksgiving, adoration to Him for who He is, and asking for requests for those I know who I have promised to pray for and then for my own requests for me and my family. Those are the greatest days!
But then there are those other days!
Those days where I oversleep or just lay in bed with my thoughts and end up getting a late start. I rush to fix my smoothie and get to work. Oh you say, ‘but you are retired’! Well not really. We started this internet marketing business a few months ago and I am back to an 8 to 5 day again. Some days it is less but most days it is more. I guess it will be until we really get this going.
