Respect dare series – day 29 – Joy

Philippians 2:14-17

Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.

When God tells us to do something, we’re to take joy in it. I’m called to serve my husband and family. This should be my joy. It shouldn’t be done like a child who’s tooth is being pulled out! Obedience with joy honours God. Serving my family joyfully honours God and Glenn. It also brings up my children in a culture where obedience to God is seen as a joyful pursuit.

My action for today: Be mindful of my heart attitude. Develop a sense of worship during daily tasks by intentionally praying out loud through them. Read Scripture to our boy to keep my heart in God. Listen to worship music in the home.

My prayer for today: Father, let me grasp into your joy in all circumstances. Let me serve you in joyful obedience. Make my heart to delight in doing your will. Amen

Obedience in joy from a place of worship
