Do Your Best

***** 1 CORINTHIANS 5:8

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

I remember my dad telling me to just do my best wherever I was, whatever situation I was in. Before my accident, I had a completely different life. There are many times I pray to the Lord, asking if this is where I am suppose to be and what does He want me to be doing?

Then I remember. He knows exactly where I am at all times and exactly what I am suppose to be doing! I just try my best each day and when I don’t feel good or I feel useless, I stop and remember the Lord made me, stop feeling sorry for myself, get up and do my very best. He has me right where He wants.

Hope you have an amazing weekend from all of us in beautiful Watertown, Tennessee on New O’Hana Farm, TN :)Jen

    Philippians 4:12 12
    “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”

    We all go through many trials throughout our life. Some trials (like your accident) alter our lives more drastically than others, but we all have afflictions on various levels. Being content in all situations is difficult. I know that all too well. But I am leaning on God more now than I ever have. That’s because I truly am surrendering my all. Throughout my Christian life I thought I was surrendering but I see the difference now. I truly am allowing Him in my life to lead and guide. I struggle at times because I have to fight the urge to be in control. But I have greater peace now than I ever have.

    Didn’t mean to write a post here. 😆 Thanks for sharing yours as I certainly can relate. Hugs. 🦋

    1. Amen! You should copy this and make it your post!!! I am slow at seeing posts and emails as my husband and I are sick with allergies really bad all over again. We had 3 weeks in December where we were so sick. Everything is beginning to bud, sprout and bloom here! It will rain, be sunny, cold or snow. Too much on our bodies 🙂 I am praying for you right now Andi. I know life is very hard and we don’t all share everything we are going through, but letting HIM guide our lives is such a blessing. We don’t know our next step, our next thought but the Lord does and I want HIM in control not me. Thank you for your amazing words, please share to everyone. Have a beautiful day! Hugs back :)Jen
