I signed up for these emails from Made to Crave. This one really hits the spot at my house. Go here to view and sign up for yourself.
I will give you a glimpse into my life. This weekend I was trying to get the house ready for our open on Sunday. We had a lot going on so I didn't get started til after dinner. I was really bitter because I felt like I was the only one trying to get the house sold. I had asked my husband to hang some pictures and fix a leaky faucet. He hadn't done it. Now I was trying to get the house together as everyone else was sitting down watching TV. I decided I wasn't going to do anymore. If no one else cared neither would I. I still hadn't shampooed and there were some spots that really needed it. I went to my room to just read by myself. I had just gotten 'Reshaping It All' by Candace Cameron Bure. So as I'm reading I'm thinking how I just want to go down stairs and eat something. But I keep reading. She talks about just that. How we start to feel emotional about something and then we turn to food instead of God.
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11
So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. Galations 5:16
I did apologize the next day to my husband and thankfully no one came to the open. (The floors were really that bad!) Next time I will not dwell in my bitterness!
Hope everyone else is having a good week (:
