I have been feeling led (gently led, mind you) to begin working on a Biblical study of the life of Michal (King Saul's daughter; King David's wife). This isn't exactly a new idea ~ I've felt the Lord tugging at my heart to invest time studying Michal's heart for quite some time now. I've been "putting it off" because, to be totally honest, I'm super busy! But how on earth can I be too busy to do what He is leading me to do? And if He owns it all, that "all" includes my time, so I actually cannot be too busy to use His time/my time to do His will. I pretty much need to get started with my study of Michal, don't I?!
So I'm asking my blog followers to help keep me accountable - ask me how it's going, remind me to keep doing what He asks me to do and not let the busy life I lead as a homeschool mom crowd out His best for me, give me a stern rebuke if need be! How will you know if I am actually doing this study on Michal; how will you know if you need to "lemme have it"? I'll share some of what I study on my blog so that you can hold me accountable. And don't worry, no pressure on you; you're all busy moms, too, and the last thing I want to do is heap one more burden upon you. No one is obligated to keep me accountable ~ you are free to check up on me and you are free to NOT check up on me. Placing this on my blog for all to see will keep my heart a bit closer to my King throughout this process; there is something about commiting my work to Jesus openly before other believers that helps me move in the right direction (hopefully that makes sense to someone other than just me!).
Have a fantastic day as you seek to serve and love our Lord with your day to day life as a mom.
Psalm 105:4 (New Living Translation) says, "Search for the LORD and for His strength, and keep on searching."
That's my prayer for you, and for myself, today - search for Him and keep on searching!! He's worth the search, amen?!
Day 44 done :)
