Proverbs 6: 6-11: Talks about not being lazy. Which given my current condition, is a struggle. I have been dealing with some health issues for some time now. I felt that God was telling me to focus on my health. Take some time. But then I think about verses such as these, talking about doing. And I feel as if I am being lazy. Neither my husband nor God saw me that way. I was allowing Satan to influence my thought pattern. God sees me as following his instructions. However, I was used to going 100 mph and prayed to God to give me something so I don’t feel so worthless. When you are used to caring for everyone and then all of a sudden you can’t; it is easy to feel worthless. (Don’t give in to Satan’s jabs)
It is how I started writing this blog. I am working on taking it a step further. Finding a way to make money that allows me to exercise and go to all my doctor appointments. I am working on it. But God has a plan and I will wait for his plan to unfold.
6 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! 7 It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler, 8 yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. 9 How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest—11 and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.
