The Assigned Work

It’s the last day of February. I don’t want to put the Valentine’s Day decorations away. My first goal for 2018 was to make Valentine’s Day table runner. I love it!

This is the first holiday I did not share my decorations on I prayed during the month of January about continuing that blog. I didn’t get an answer. I waited another month. Still no direction.

Yesterday, I had a long talk with God. Am I trusting Him? Or something else? He reminded me how I used one Saturday a month decorating for the next holiday. He put that desire in me. Why wouldn’t He want me to use it?

I opened my Bible.

1 Chronicles 23:3, “David sorted them into work groups….”  The Message

I need to organize a few places around here! Maybe I should start spring cleaning.

1 Chronicles 23:28, 29, “From the assigned work…maintain courtyards and closets, keep furniture and utensils…clean,…provide bread for the table…-all baking and mixing,…” The Message

It looks like I am to concentrate on the house for a while. I will keep decorating as usual and will keep waiting for an answer. But I couldn’t resist sharing my new runner!

What Am I Trusting?

“What am I trusting?”

1 Chronicles 21:8, “…substituting statistics for trust; forgive my sin – I’ve been really stupid.” The Message

“David’s military census (see vv. 2-3) does not appear to have been prompted by any immediate external threat. Since he wanted to ‘know how many there are’ (v. 2), it is evident that his action was motivated by pride in the size of the empire he had acquired, by reliance for his security on the size of the reserve of manpower he could muster in an emergency or, more likely, by both.” New International Version Study Bible Notes
