Steep Your Life

First of all, I want to say how much I adore being home schooled. There are mornings that I am extra specially thankful for the opportunity to learn independently at home. I got a large amount of school work finished yesterday so I took it easy this morning...well sort of.
I woke up and spent some time with my heavenly father and then I decided to clean my room. My room was such a mess. Seriously, I have no idea how it gets so cluttered!! This week, I have been working on homework all over my house because I can't stand to work at my desk with my room being such a disaster.
But, don't fear, my room is back to normal now and I wouldn't be mortified if you took a peek in there.
Can you guess how I rewarded myself for cleaning?
Tea of course!!!
Okay, so I am extremely easy to please. There is nothing better than hot, steeped, loose leaf tea on...any day!
I smiled when I read the bible verse on my devotional yesterday.

Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

- Matthew 6:33-34 (The Message) My choice of tea today was a honeybush blend.

That's a great verse to remember. Sometimes I feel like there are things that I just can't get done that need to be done. That verse really helped me remember that God is provider.
