On my knees
This is Brother Lawrence - The Practice of the Presence of God ( Audio Book Reading ). If you don't know the book I hope this blesses you!
I was just praying about letting go of the control of our house. We have a family looking at the house today. I need to clean. I can not control if they like it, or buy it. If we sell, or rent or stay...that is all under God's control. It drives me a bit crazy to worry about the whole thing! So I was making a cup of coffee. Our coffee machine broke, and so I was pouring hot water into a filter. The filter broke, and hot coffee and grinds poured over my kitchen counter, down the front of the cabinets and into the silverware drawer. What a mess! I wiped up as much as I could, and then ran hot water into the sink. I got on my knees and began to clean. I do my best praying when I'm on my knees. It's like a spiritual battle position. I laughed out loud. If the enemy wanted to discourage me, he made a big mistake! Oh yes...I'm on my knees! And I think I'll scrub every floor in my house today by hand. This is not my battle...but this battle is already won! I don't know how, or when, but I know God has already sold the house. I give him glory!
