I flew home from church, changed my clothes and started setting everything out. As people started arriving I told everyone that I didn't need any help because everything was done and we were just waiting on the rolls to warm. Everything fell into place perfectly. There was not going to be any buffet line today. I sat out the good china and had everyone seated at the formal dinning room table. We almost didn't know how to act as we passed the food around. The meal was wonderful if I do say so myself. Well,,,,,,,there was one thing that I discovered as I cleaned up that taught me a very important lesson. I went to wipe out the microwave when I discovered a large bowl of corn. It was on the list but I was so big on planning and organizing that I had missed it. Tim and I are going to be eating corn for a week.
I learned this week that so many times I organize and plan thinking I am doing this wonderful thing for God. I get everything together and realize that I haven't even asked him if he wants the thing I have been planning. He is looking down on me and wondering why is this woman running around like a chicken with its head cut off. All he wants me to do is follow him and do what He tells me to do then He can bless it.
This week I am going to stop and wait for the Father to show me what he wants me to do. (No more leaving corn in the microwave. If you know what I mean). Jesus was a great example he only did what he saw his father do. Stop this week and listen to his voice.
Jesus said,"I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.
