Seek to Please me

Posted by | July 07, 2014 | Balance, Pastors' Wives | No Comments

I pray your weekend was awesome and would love to hear what God is doing in your life and the life of your church.

With the stress of balancing all there is as a pastors’ wife, I pray your focus remains on pleasing your Lord and Savior. Let this devotional speak to your heart:

                “Seek to please Me above all else. Let that goal be your focal point as you go through this day. Such a mind-set will protect you from scattering your energy to the winds. The free will I bestowed on you comes with awesome responsibility. Each day presents you with choice after choice. Many of these decisions you ignore and thus make by default. Without a focal point to guide you, you can easily lose your way. That’s why it is so important to stay in communication with Me, living in thankful awareness of My Presence.

                You inhabit a fallen, disjointed world, where things are constantly unraveling around the edges. Only a vibrant relationship with Me can keep you from coming unraveled too.”

                Colossians 3:23-24 [23] Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, [24] since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
