Did I Serve Him Well? November 17, 2016

As I was driving to pick up my daughter from babysitting last night, I started wondering, if today was my last day here on earth, did I make the most of it? Did I hug my family enough? Did I tell them I love them? Do they know it and will not question it in the future? Did I get to spend enough time with my husband? Did I help anyone in need? Did I remember to pray for everyone? Did I share the Word with someone? Have I done all that God has wanted me to do today?

I am going to have to stand before Him and account for all my choices. I KNOW I have screwed up way more times than I would care to admit. I miss my prompting to go and take the blanket to the homeless lady, give the call to the friend on my heart, add that extra ten bucks to the tip for the stressed out waitress. Those are the easy ones I have skipped. I have passed on the times the Holy Spirit has nudged me to go and share the word or pray with someone, mainly because I felt awkward and didn't want to look like a weirdo. I have missed times to love my husband because I was "too busy" doing things for others, when he SHOULD BE my MOST IMPORTANT. I have missed times when I was stressed & instead of spending time in His word for comfort and soul recharging, I wanted to watch a television show and veg, not think about anything. 😕 Ugh. I am a fail. I am sorry Lord.

So now I am about to pick my daughter up, in my mind I am still questioning, if today is my last day to be the hands and feet of Jesus, have I done what He has requested of me? Do I live to serve Him or myself? If I did serve, did I do so with a joyful heart or out of obligation? Did I serve the One who took the nails for me? Did I share His love the way He wanted me to today...any day He asked...?

Oh friend, make EVERY SINGLE DAY COUNT!! We have no clue when our last breath will come. We did not come with expiration dates. What we did come with, is the command from Jesus to love.
💗✨
Matthew 22:36-40 says
"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Love my neighbor as my own self-centered self. Live to love others. Die to myself and live for Him. Yes Lord, I will do better. For You have CHOSEN ME and I choose to serve You.
Let's get this new day started!!
I am here to serve!!!
