That's exactly what I plan to do...but not for long. I was not created to be a selfish being, though that's what my flesh tells me to be. God calls me to loves others before myself. This alone time I have is fabulous, but it's fleeting and insignificant. Soon the movie will be over and the junk food will be gone, but my family and all that REALLY matters will still take precedence.
|Me, me, me, me, me!|
Truth be told, I take a lot of "me" time.
More than I want to admit.
Why do I feel so guilty? Because I'm NOT created to be a selfish being, but that's exactly what I've become.
Praise God, His mercies are new every morning. Tomorrow can be different. Tomorrow there is another chance to truly put others before myself. God's still working on me, and I'm glad He is. I'm glad the Spirit gnaws on me enough to face the (ugly) truth. Through Christ, I can do better. Tomorrow when the kids go to VBS, maybe "me" time will be that much more sweet.
