used up for Him

(jude's making a funny face, he's not mad :))

yesterday was a difficult day with these sweet little boys. i found myself getting quickly angry with them & raising my voice. really it's because i was taking it personally that they were disobeying me instead of being grieved by their sin against the Lord. i was reminded last night that i need to see those moments as a rescue mission to discipline them & restore them to the Lord. 

all i have is the Lord's. my home, my children, my body, my wisdom, my giftings... all to be used up for the glory of the Lord. gosh i can be so selfish! humble me Lord & in the moments that i'm sooo annoyed that my boys aren't listening to ME remind me that it is You alone who deserves the glory & all my efforts!

I can so relate to this! I have come to similar conclusions. It's the same thing in our other relationships...are we genuinely concerned for people and their relationship with the Lord? Or are we too busy being offended by how they treat us? God has been working in my heart in this way as well. (BTW...I love that yellow porch swing!)
