A bump in the road

Have you ever been sitting and reading your Bible when suddenly you hit a bump in the road. I unfasten my seat belt and get out and walk all around the bump. Has this bump been there the entire time? How have I never noticed this bump before? So now  sit down and spend time with the bump and truly examine it because it is on a road I have traveled many times before...

"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms" 1 Peter 4:10

What are the gifts I've received from my heavenly Father? My blessings are children. Thus my question to myself is always am I living this, what would this look like in my life? 1 Peter 3:15-16 seems to answer the question as it requires gentleness and respect. Am I gentle and respectfully to everyone and especially to those the Lord has entrusted to me, my children. Am I disciplining and disciplining while gently washing them with the word?

Daily I grasp on to Galatians 6:9 recognizing that these sweet little ones are are my harvest for the Lord and that I should not give up! Some days are admittedly better then others but what a blessing it is to know I can faithfully administer God's grace in it's various forms daily within the walls of my home. 

May God's Grace fill your homes!

Very well said, and a reminder that I needed this week. I loved reading your blog. I just started The Excellent Wife book for the second time. Funny how you can get different things out of books, just like you were talking about with the Bible everytime you read it.
