This will probably be the world's shortest blog post, but I hope so much that it will encourage someone else today.
I was praying a short time the other morning and telling the Lord how sorry I am that I'm so inconsistent when it comes to prayer and Bible reading. I really am inconsistent in those things. I do great for a week or two, then I slide back into a hit and miss routine. I let out a big sigh and then went downstairs for my day.
Later that day, I gave our littlest boy his meds and formula through his g-tube (he looks like a perfectly healthy seven year old, but has a metabolic disorder that requires the g-tube since age 2 ). I walked over to the counter and opened a notebook I keep there and wrote down the time I gave his meds to him. Then, suddenly, the Lord spoke to me. He said, "I don't think you are inconsistent at all. You've been doing this job of giving Nathaniel his meds for five years." I was so shocked and also flooded with Jesus' love for me. I never thought about it like that. I thought He was more interested in how much I read the Bible or prayed during the week, but He was showing me that He didn't look at me and my efforts as a giant check mark on His calendar.
He feels the same way about you. He sees your heart and that is what He is most concerned about. The things we do for Him and forget - He will NEVER forget. He lovingly watches you throughout your day and He remembers each and every thing you do in His name. His heart is tender towards you.
Have a blessed day!
