Day 26: Releasing control in the future

Standard

A couple of weeks ago Dave and I went to see the movie Corageous. It was an excellent movie… I would encourage you to go see it (just a side note). But, during the movie there is a theme that we are stewards of our families, of our children, of our relationships.

After the movie we had some really good conversation. Dave made the comment that he is not guaranteed any time with Holland or Hudson or me. God is in control.
This got me thinking about being a steward of what God has entrusted us. Being a steward of the time we have, the gifts He has given, the relationships we have…

We can’t be sure that we will be here tomorrow (not to be morbid at all) but it is true. God knows the number of our days… we do not. This life is but a breath. We can’t control how much time we have but we can be stewards of the gifts, relationships and time God has given.

1 Peter 4:9-11
9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

This blog is about lessons I am learning on a daily basis. I am a stay at home mom, so most of the lessons I learn from my children. Matthew 21:16 "'Do you hear what these children are saying?' they asked him. 'Yes,' replied Jesus, 'have you never read, '"from the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise'?"" God teaches us things in all different ways... These are my reflections on those lessons.
