1. "But seek first kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33
At the beginning of the week, with renewed spirit, I attempted with great fervor to keep this teaching. I know that whatever you serve first is where your heart is. So I attempted to pray more often. I got up early to pray before the kids woke up. I read scripture daily. I was strict with the kids about family prayer times. I tried to keep up with a schedule, housework, and tending to the needs of the children. As the week went on, I simply grew weary. I would say that each day went well, but Friday did not fall anywhere close to the kingdom of God. To be honest, I am not sure I even glimpsed the kingdom or righteousness all week. But I want to see it; just not sure how to get there and stay there. Are there any prayers for the weary? I know there is scripture about working your toils with a smile and laughter in you heart. Perhaps I need to memorize that one. Does any one know it?
