Holy Week Minefulness
Be mindful in everything you do. We all would love to do this right? I did just that as I cleaned my outdated upstairs bathroom. I prepared my cleaning solution, water, vinegar, drop of all natural dish soap and a drop of essential oil. Went up a went to work on my beautiful home. Things I took for granted, I have a home to clean. I have running water. I have a husband that works hard outside the home so I don't have too. We don't think of our lives like this everyday. This mindful thinking helped me to be more mindful of what our Lord wants us to be.
I song comes to mind, "If we are the body" by Casting Crowns. "If we are the body, why aren't these arms reaching, hands healing, why aren't these words teaching..., we need to be the body of Christ, in our words and actions. In everything. Jesus said(Matthew 25:42-45_For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me. he replied I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the these, you do not do for me.
What I am trying to get at is my mindfulness made me think of how fortunate I am in my life and how I need to be the body of Christ in my life. The Lord made us stewards of the earth, to take care of it and to care for the people on it. Be mindful and your life will be lifted in everything you do.
