MtR: faith to trust

"Now fear the LORD and serve Him with all faithfulness.  Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD."  Joshua 24:14

God wants me to trust Him more.
How do I know?
He's asking me to give Him something very precious to me.
He wants me to give Him this something so He can give me more of something else.
If my hands and heart are filled with yesterday, how can I receive today?
Good point.
If He didn't have my attention at verse 14, the message was loud and clear when verse 23 rolled around...

"'Now then,' said Joshua, 'throw away the foreign gods that are among you and yield your hearts to the LORD, the God of Israel.'"  Joshua 24:23

I have been holding onto something that is taking up too much of my mind, heart and time...God wants it gone.
Throw it away.  Delete it.  Let it go.
"Have faith to trust Me with it," God beckons me.

Okay.
I have no choice but to obey.
He is worth it.
He always is.

Thank you PB for preaching that sermon just for me.  It was awesome...a remarkable moment indeed.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
