I am running around the house on a Saturday morning, and I am trying to get my house in order after the week’s events. Some days it seems that I am repeating the same motions over and over: clean kitchen, start laundry, check email, clean a dirty diaper…clean kitchen, switch laundry, check another email, clean another dirty diaper, pick up a toy…clean kitchen, switch out laundry, check an email…you get the point!
Today the thought ran through my mind: “Will it ever end?” And, immediately, a YES resounded in my heart. One day I will wish I had a dirty diaper, a dirty kitchen, a pile of laundry. One day it will end. My children will become adults and live in their own homes (with their own unending cycle…heehee). I am only living in a moment that will pass all too soon.
This past week my daughter’s discipleship course focused on renewing your mind. I am thankful for the YES that resounded to my selfish question. I needed to be renewed and reminded. This too shall pass…
…Be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God…(Romans 12:2, AMP)
