Sometimes it's the little things...

One thing I desire is to apply God's Holy word to my life. No, I am not successful everyday, but I try. Yesterday I bought 2 plastic containers to store clothing. Shopping on a budget, two was what I could afford. When I got home to organize my clothing, I realized that I actualy had three. I looked at my receipt, and was only charged for two. My first thought, being on a budget, was to go back to the store and claim to have left a lid. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, He will direct you from doing worng, and that is exactly what He did. I went back to the store, purchsed two more (because I needed them) and told the lady what happened, and that I needed to purchase one more (which I already had). As I left the store, not only did I ask God to forgive me for my first thought, But I thanked Him for giving me the Holy Spirit, that really does have my best interest at heart : )


  1. We are not perfect. We are human, we error, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly, but that could've been your test for the day just to see if you would do the right thing. The word says that if you are faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many. Good for you.

  2. Queen, there are many times when I KNOW I failed a test. Which is why when I realize I "passed" this test it put a smile on my face. Because we are not perfect, but it's through that knowledge that we are able to grow from our errors. And Lord knows I am the Errror-"Queen"!!!
