It’s a new year! New beginnings, a time for changes in my life and those around me. I have almost retired my cleaning business…one small house still. (It was given me when my mom retired from cleaning and maintaining properties she invested in and managed. Sweetest little lady that I see as almost a mom and my daughter looks to as almost a grandmother. She has cleaned for her too.) It’s scary step down from a business I have invested in for about 20 years. But I am excited to see where God leads me in this new season!
As I was reading my devotion this morning, it spoke to me…(It was on Jeremiah 45) Am I only thinking of me and doing what the world says? “You do you” and “you deserve it” and “You only live once”-am I falling for what the world says? Focusing only on me? I pray that I will live like “God longs for our needs to be taken care of and reminds us that He wants to be our provider. When we yield to His ways, we find ourselves in the safest place of all.” Wow! Why is it so hard to lean on Him and not on our own strength? (The devotion I am referring to above is from the phone app from Proverbs 31 Ministries….Me-ology by Melissa Spoelstra on January 2,2019) I encourage you to lean on Him and he will take care of you!
