I Corinthians 10:31
This Scripture was a convicting one for me because I am so guilty of not doing all things to the glory of God. Though I am learning about how to invite God's glory into my daily life, I usually grumble (outloud and under my breath) about having to do the laundry, fix dinner, clean up spills, etc, when I'd rahter be writing, blogging or reading.
I'm also learning (though slowly) to be content in all things. That God hasn't called me to juggle a bunch of hats at once, instead He's called me to wear one at a time..It's so much easier that way! When I'm homeschooling, I wear the homeschooling hat, when I'm cooking the domestic hat, but only if it were that simple because while wearing one of the not so pretty hats, the dazzling writer's hat always catches my eye. It is then I need to remind myself to be content in all things and the time will come when I get to put on my writer's hat.
Sure sometimes I take off my other hats and place the more desireable ones on my head, but then God calls me back to my purpose. To be content in wearing one hat at a time.
