It seems easier said than done, right? Well, I cannot lie. Most of the time it is.
Today, Kim, at Cafe Chat, asked:
“how can we bring glory to God in the midst of the repetitive everyday tasks that we have to do? Give examples”
Kim gives 1 Corinthians 10:31 as a foundation verse; which reads “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
The words that immediately came to mind were, “Don’t dread”. This was, and still is a struggle of mine when it came to the affairs of keeping my home neat and tidy. Those two words came from Joyce Meyer’s book by the same title: Don’t Dread, Overcoming the Spirit of Dread with the Supernatural Power of God.
It never occurred to me before reading that book that dread may be a spiritual issue that could be supernaturally overcome.
In her book, there is a sub-title in chapter 1, Dread is a Mindset. This next quote was an eye-opener, “If you are working, you might as well enjoy it. Dread will steal any joy you could experience when working, and it will also steal your joy while you are away from work as you are dreading going back!” Whoo…a mouthful!
I have a suggestion if dread is evident in your everyday life: Get the book! I’m more than confident that it will help. It’s small. You can keep it in your purse or better yet, put it on your kitchen window sill to have as a reminder of what’s important: Giving God the glory in whatever you do.
Pssst… You can get the book from Joyce Meyer Ministry’s eStore for $2.00!!
Dread no more my sisters!!
