And the List Goes On…

A few years back, I heard a song at a mother/daughter tea….  it was called “the List Goes On”.  My MIL talked me into singing it for a women’s conference being held at our church.  The point of the song was a mother singing about how the list is never done… (it goes on, and on and on….) and the children chime in every few words with the reality that children often do…

“I have to go potty….”

“Someone needs a diaper…”

“We’re late for the Dr…”

It was a perfect song for me to sing – and I often cried when I practiced it because it was so real, it spoke volumes of how I felt mostly each day.

Well Steven Curtis Chapman recently came out with a song that has a similar “speak to me” feel…only this one is more of a reminder of how EVERYTHING we do matters to God.  It’s called “Do Everything…”

It talks about the things we think are “little”, and how they  DO matter to Him.

How we respond, speak, think and act.  Our job, our mission field – whether it’s in your house… or in another country.  It ALL matters to Him.

Oh….

And how we eat take care of our bodies is also very important to God.

YEP – that totally matters too!

It. ALL. Matters.

Your health is a witnessing tool.  It’s an outward example of how God is working inside out!  Utilize it for His glory!!

What changes are you making right now – and where do you need encouragement most?  Who has started their “truth pack”?

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:16-17
