The other day, I found myself saying to Martha, "Stop talking and do what you're told!" I must confess that there was just a slight edge of irritation in my voice. She went and did what she had been told to do, and I went back to washing my dishes. I was about half way back to the sink when the Holy Spirit smote my heart, and I heard Him saying those words to me! I squirmed and started "talking back" to the Holy Spirit - trying hard to "help" Him see my side of the story! Again I heard, "Stop talking and do what you're told!" I immediately began thinking of things in my life that I have been "told" to do, and how many times I neglect to do them! Ooooh! How patient and loving the Holy Spirit is with us - isn't He?!

Isn't it funny (and convicting) how God uses our children to teach us more about our relationship with our Heavenly Father? I sometimes think I learn more from my children, than they learn from me! How precious those "learning moments" are to me!
So, like my children, I am (again) learning the lesson of "Stop talking and do what you're told!" And, just like for my children, it is sometimes a hard lesson for me to remember and obey! But praise the Lord, I have His patience and loving-kindness to help me as I learn these valuable lessons with my children!
