Worshipping in the Details
I was listening to The Purpose driven Life (listening because reading is very challenging now) and the following verse really stuck out to me.
The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. (Psalms 37:23 NLT)
I have struggled since the stroke with feeling useful. (Although I am finding new ways to use my spiritual gifts - it just takes more creativity and seeking out other opportunities.) And I know the verse "So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31 NLT) But the "every detail" got me.
Even though I can't keep nursery anymore. Even though I can't drive myself to a mission outreach thing...and even if I could get there what could I do? Even though I can't get up and shake hands with the new couple in Sunday School. Even though I can't do a whole host of things right now...I can still worship Him in the details of life.
