Well, the day is almost through. As the darkness grows, I sit here pondering my day. Did I accomplish what I needed today. I can think of a hundred household chores and school activities that we didn’t get to. I begin to get anxious. The doubts press in hard. Slowly, I breathe in and breathe out. I focus my thoughts on Truth. Christ fills my mind and the Spirit moves my heart. I remember that my goal is not to do everything I “should”. My goal, and what I strive for daily, hourly, and every minute is to become more like Him. I make mistakes. Boy, do I make mistakes. I also have won many victories by His power. Today held many victories. Looking at them individually, they don’t look like much….but..each minute that I can claim victory over trials and sin builds into hours and days of glory to Jesus!
My family is learning and growing. Along with that, they are becoming more independent as their personality allows. Our home is becoming more calm, more reliable. We are making progress. God is transforming our hearts into His creation.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10
Does anything matter but this?
