Quiet Time- Man In The Mirror

So then each of us will give an account of himself to God. Romans 14:12

This week I have not made God a priority in my life. Even as I start the new year with balance being a goal of mine, I have let God slip onto the back burner. I consider my faith strong, our relationship unbreakable, but then I fail to keep my end of the bargain. Thankfully we serve a forgiving God. It is not enough just to be a good person, you have to act on your faith as well. I am trying to do this but it can be hard in todays world. When I feel myself slipping away from the place of spiritual peace I need to be I ask myself "if I died today would this matter"? This brings everything back into perspective but now that I have read this verse, I am going to try to remember it in all my actions. When I give God the account of my life how will I explain to God that I decided watching one more episode of The Office was more important than taking time to pray?

Interesting question you ask yourself.

Mine?

What would I do tomorrow if I were not afraid?

My job, daily, expands my comfort zone. It's amazing how many more choices I see when I ask that question.

I wonder what other people ask themselves?

Thanks for sharing so deeply your belief.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

Such a convicting post- I've been in the same boat lately. I need to just stop beating myself up & start spending some time on my knees. *hugs*

I keep a small bottle of holy water right next to my perfume in the medicine cabinet which reminds me each morning to greet God and ask for His help in keeping Him at the forefront throughout my day. And remember, He has a sense of humor and is enjoying The Office right along with you...XXOO
