But………

ttbutton

I am so tired as I lay in my bed typing this tonight……it’s just about 10:00 and I am weary.  What a day, it was a busy day at school today, my student teacher was supposed to teach all day today, but she was home sick.  So my plans to accomplish a lot of paperwork went by the wayside quickly.  I got home late, after waiting for SportTman and a friend to finish lifting weights afterschool.  Made dinner, did the wash, and thought about a lesson for my Girls Alive class at church tonight.  The whole time my mind kept drifting to this one word….nap….nap…nap now…..nap.  Somehow I kept going, and even made some delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies because I had a serious craving for cookie dough.  Got home from church still thinking nap….sleep…… but had to help hubby put a big door back on the hinges in the basement….nap……Zzzzzzzzzzz.
But just as I laid down in my bed to prepare to do life again tomorrow, I opened my bible and these verses suddenly jumped off the pages at me.
~And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink, do not worry about it! For the pagan world runs after such things, and your Father knows that you need them. BUT seek His kingdom, these things will be given to you as well~  Luke12:29-31
When all is done in a busy day, it really comes down to that one simple truth…….But seek His kingdom!  The things of the world suddenly seem less important when put in the perspective of seeking His kingdom!
I am thankful for that reminder tonight…………………  and now………….Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

There is much to be thankful for…….for more Thankful Thursday, click on the button above.

    I appreciate what you said in your post about seeking God’s kingdom first. I especially appreciate when you said: “When all is done in a busy day, it really comes down to that one simple truth…….But seek His kingdom!” That’s so true. If we could just learn how to think eternally – wow – what a difference it would probably make!

    Hope you get some rest!
