Love linking up with my friend Jane over at Girl Meets Paper
On Monday's we mediate on a verse , what a great way to start the week!!
Loving this link up, it is s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me to mediate and put in to action what I learn.
Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.
For His sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with Him.
He was standing at the top of the stairs.
All around me was stuff...
At first I was mad.
I had spent the day before cleaning and picking up.
Making everything tidy.
Lately that has become a chore.
Squeezing things in overcrowded spaces.
The true answer to the squeezing was
getting rid of the garbage.
Jenn how in the world did we get all this stuff??
Laughing was all the answer I could come up with.
Together we went through the house.
We climbed into bed, later into the night.
Our bones ached,and backs sore.
In my life these things, this stuff
what the world says we need and half to have,
have no value.
I been thinking a little deeper.
To this ugly heart of mine.
Maybe the verse also means those
sins I hold so dearly onto.
That I grip in my fist.
I need to loosen my fingers around the grip
of sin and disregard,
so I can gain so much more.
The beauty of it all
is that God never leaves me to loosen
the grip of sin that I hold onto, on my own.
He works in me.
So that I can gain.
