It's not about me!

"In sanctification the regenerated soul deliberately gives up his right to himself to Jesus Christ, and identifies himself entirely with God's interest in other men." -Oswald Chambers

What does mercy look like in my day to day life? How do I pursue knowing God and enjoying Him forever in my mundane daily chores? These are all the thoughts that I have been trying to push to the forefront but keep getting distracted. No distractions this morning (Elise is at Gramma's). Several times a day I read my verse of the day, at least once a day I check to see if my wonderful friends have posted anything new (or new comments). Today was no different except that after reading Laura's blog and comments, I then read Katy's blog after her comment, and then read a blog she recommended. I am not involved in Ethiopian adoptions (where would we put another?) BUT I was encouraged so much by her oh so common but often uncommon christian walk that I left her a comment even though I don't know her. I hope you are encouraged by another Emily's words!
