Cozy

So here we are all cozy in our house. Adam is home . Everyone is feeling a little under the weather. We have the fire going and the chili cooking. It is a cold winter day. The kind of day you just want to stay indoors. Except today is Sunday, the day we have our skateboard outreach at our house. Attendance has been slim to say the least. We were certain only the usual couple of people would come, but no. Not today. The one day we were feeling all cozy or preoccupied with our desires, He brings them out from nowhere. Lots of kids and parents! My first thought was,"oh man there goes our quiet afternoon." Then God quickly reminded me why we are doing this. He did not call us to a life of "cozy" but a life surrendered. Surrendered of our desires and our will. Surrendered at His feet for His purpose. So, bring on the skateboarding kids!

You know skateboarding kids are near and dear to my heart! In your sacrifice, Christ will be blessed! Knowing that those kids were handpicked by God today to get a taste of Him. So thankful for your surrender and obedience especially during the "cozy" times!

This reminds me of something I read yesterday- too much comfort seeking can kill the desire for sanctity. This is so true for me! I just love to be cozy! Do you have a ramp or half pipe at your house? My husband would be so jealous!
