Its here, the only day of the year that also a command. March Fourth! Its a day to get up and go. Its seems this would be a better day to start with resolutions then Jan 1 when you are all tired from the Holidays. Plus it’s sound so strong and energetic – March Fourth!
Today, pick something that you have had laying around that you have been wanting to do, and just get it done. I am going to spice up the front page of this site a bit, so that http:\\www.butcherville.com actually has some content, even though my friend Blue Line has returned to be with me all day today and tomorrow! What are you going to do? Can’t think of anything? Here are a few suggestions:
- share the Daily Buffet with a friend, I know you have been wanting to- maybe some one else is as crazy as you and find encouragement through through this bit of text.
- mow your lawn ( ok not really)
- say a prayer for Tennessee Jed. I have spoken with him a little this week, and he is still struggling with lots of stuff.
It’s amazing how many things we want to do, however we never stop and take the time to do. Its like that in all aspects of life – even our spiritual lives. We have high intentions, but find ourselves wandering. Sometimes its the battle within ourselves that prevents us from getting things done. Check out Galatians 5. This is an interesting verse, especially around the end of the 17th verse.
Galatians 5:16-18 (New International Version)
16So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. 17For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.
Which is it that we want to do, that we do not do – the sinful nature, or the desire of the Spirit? Anyway. which are you going to let lead you today? March Fourth leave the flesh behind and be led by the Spirit, then watch what happens! Do it today – March Fourth!!
