Tonight, I started reading the book, "Passionate Housewives Desperate for God."
I had bought it a long while back with a couple other books and this one got put on the back burner then forgotten.
I can see where I had folded edges on some pages in the beginning and then stopped reading it. I guess at the time I was not ready for the book or not interested in it. Tonight, I was devouring the pages.
It has lifted me up so much about being at home with a joyful heart. It helps me realize I am doing the work of God by being home, keeping my home, taking care of my husband and children and that all those things I do for them is unto God and He will supply all my needs.
I'm not a big fan of "me time." I do like to go sometimes to the store by myself or things like that. Well, I guess that I do get into "me time" then. Anyway, it helped me to see I do not need any of that to be content. There's been like this void in me that I'm always trying to fill... and I know ONLY GOD can fill it.. but I still try in vain.
I know for sure that ONLY GOD can fulfill it so I am handing that all over to Him and Him alone! My temporary fixes never work!
I encourage you to read this book. It has been sitting and waiting for me for too long. I'm glad I had it to pick up tonight and start reading. Renee, at The Growing Stam family has it on her side bar, and every time I see it - I think - "I need to pull that book out and read it!" Tonight, I did. As with any book - it's not the Bible - but it is a wonderful book like speaking to a Godly friend and it is backed up all by scriptures.
I am thankful tonight, for that book, that is touching me!
