I admit it. It hasn’t been easy to keep my faith first. It’s lately stayed in the background.
Saving money to be a good steward was easy. Simplifying my wardrobe and home decor to be a good steward was fairly easy. Home decor was planned to create an environment that would make it easier to draw closer to God.
But then it became harder. I spent too much time on a putting together a pleasing wardrobe. And then there is the joy I get from my wardrobe.
I guess it’s just one of the many things I need to work on. So while I do find joy on things like that, I will make a point to find joy in God instead. Concerning my wardrobe, I will aim only to be neat and presentable (which I was not ready for until now).
As I work towards my goals, I need to remember they should not be my goals first. I should seek his goals first.
That doesn’t mean I don’t research and plan and work hard. It means I pray about it, listen and read the Bible first, then do what I can. And what I can’t do reasonably, I leave to God.
What areas do you struggle with when you reconcile your faith to your goals?
