Prepared- Are You?


Today my thoughts lie along the lines of being prepared. Spiritually, Temporally, and Financially. As I sat in my meetings today, listening to the speakers/presenters, my mind was a running checklist. Good Life Insurance- Check, Savings Accounts- Check (Though I could do better), Family Prayer- Check, Scripture Study- Check, Tithing- Check. The list went on and on. I kept thinking, yep I am doing that. Then it hit me. I AM doing those things, but am I really DOING it? Is it just a "tradition" or is it a righteous pattern. Am I in a habit that is meaningless or do I really seek to know and understand. I can't really say one way or the other at this point. I know that I am trying to do what is right and desire to serve the Lord. This has caused me to really think deeply about my beliefs, ideas, and understanding. I don't doubt what I know and have learned, I just wonder what I COULD know if I really applied myself to learning and fulfilling my calling. I know that as I work to improve in my life, blessings will be poured out.



I CAN say however, that even just by doing those things, regardless of whether they are done with 100% true understanding, builds a routine and allows me to be receptive to the spirit. I know that if you will do the same in your life, regardless of religious beliefs and background that the Lord will bless you too!


Try it and Keep the Faith...

You have a typo in your disclaimer statement on the sidebar: "chruch" should be "church". :) Nice blog, btw.
