I was recently reading Matthew 26 when Holy Spirit CAME FOR MY LIFE, OKAY!?
I was in Matthew 26:6-13 when the disciples got upset with the woman for pouring the oil on Jesus when it could’ve been used to make money for the poor. They called it a waste of oil. But Jesus rebuked them and called what the woman did memorable for ages to come.
I’m at a place in my life where many family, friends, and even sometimes myself, feel like I’m “wasting” my oil. (Humbly) I had so many prestigious internships and have a stellar resume, but decided none of that matters. I don’t just want a job. I want to glorify God with whatever I’m spending most of my time doing.
So I’ve been pursuing my blog where I share my testimony of how God’s seen me through pregnancy, depression, single motherhood, and everything in between.
And in the moments where I feel that I’m “wasting” my time, talents, or potential; I’m reminded that sharing my testimony has an eternal impact. Something that a prestigious career could never achieve.
And the money? Psalm 37:25– I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging for bread.
Choosing to live a set apart life & focusing on eternity may make you look crazy sometimes...but GOD. He has a plan & purpose. Your radical obedience will NEVER be done in vain.
