Hitting Home...

I recently mentioned that I have been reading, "My Utmost For His Highest" and I have been so encouraged how God is using this little book in my life. The last time I read it I was a freshman in college and I don't remember it hitting home like it has been lately. I guess having another decade (plus!) of living under my belt has changed my perspective.

I accidently read one day ahead today, but the Lord must have known I needed to read it. It has helped to change my attitude about going to work today. I don't understand why He hasn't allowed me to stay home full time. Even though it doesn't make sense to me, my eyes need to be on Him and not on my end goal.

To challenge your thinking here are the readings for today and tomorrow.

I love "My Utmost.." God has used this book too in so many ways to encourage me in the last several years. It is definitely one of my favorites. So glad these two enteries were such an encouragement to you. I know your heart's desire is to be at home full-time...I will continue praying that the Lord will allow a way for that to happen. You are such a great mom and I appreciate your heart so much. Let's plan our coffee date soon!
Love you and praying for your day at work.

This is such an amazing book isn't it! I am reading it, too! Ya know we would be doing it at the same time. That's just the way we operate. I am learning so much from this book and it is really opening my eyes.
