Hello, friends! This post is part of Kate Motaung's "Five Minute Friday," which she hosts on her blog and on Facebook. This week's prompt was "more".
As I sat and pondered the word "more", I reflected on how our society always wants "more". Anything that is bigger, must certainly be better. I also thought now that I'm working full-time, I always feel like I need more time, more sleep, more exercise, etc. I'd love more time to keep my house clean, more time to spend with friends or just have time to get more rest and have some "down time" for fun.
However, as we all know, we all have just 24 hours in the day and we will make room for the things that are important to us.
I don't know about you, but taking care of myself is becoming more of a priority the older I get. I'm walking more than I used to and trying to eat better and more of the RIGHT kind of foods.
Also, as I grow older, I also want MORE of God. I want to know Him MORE, I want Him to use me MORE and I want to see Him at work MORE in the people and circumstances around me.
Ephesians 4:15 (NLT) "Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church."
Philippians 4:19 (NLT) "I pray that your love will overflow more and more and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding."
