“the seed cast in the weeds is the person who hears the kingdom news, but weeds of worry and illusions about getting more and wanting everything under the sun strangle what was heard, and nothing comes of it.” –matthew 13:22
can i be honest? sometimes it feels like i want everything under the sun. my mind goes faster and faster thinking about all the fantastic new outfits i could make if only i had this belt or those shoes. my mind makes the acquisition of an item so important…but it’s not. it will all fade away.
today i will be intentional. i will not allow my desires to strangle what God is teaching me. i won’t let them distract me or keep me from what He has called me to do.
i am so thankful i serve a God who is bigger than me and promises to complete the work He’s started in me. i am in awe of Him!
