Happy New Year!
I feel so out of touch since we missed church yesterday. Well technically we went but left before Sunday School started with a sick child...hopefully we didn't spread any germs while we were in the building for 8 minutes!
So today I am home with her still puny but feeling better because she is getting stir crazy.
I am reading in Genesis right now. The story of Noah. I never get tired of that story. I used to love it because it was such a story of hope. Very inspiring. But now I love it because it is such a story of obedience. I never thought of the obedience side of Noah. He did something that God told him to do while everyone around him said he was crazy. He had never seen rain before. He probably did not truly understand what the term "flood" meant. But because God told him to build the ark...he built the ark. No questions, no whining, no nothing...just pure obedience.
How different would my life be if I was less like Moses (why me God???) and more like Noah (yes sir God!!!)?
Maybe in 2011 I can be more obedient!
Have a Jesus filled week! Find Him in the small stuff!
