So, while on only day one of fasting, I was at work and God gave me a somewhat entertaining analogy. So, I’m sitting down, putting pipet tips in holders before autoclaving them (sorry, lab nerd jargon) and I have been slowly trying to make my left hand more dexterous. Anyway, I am fumbling, trying to get these little plastic pieces into holes with my left hand, thinking “I just gotta figure out how to get my left hand to do what I want it to do” and God told me this:
Sometimes, this is how I feel with my children.

*WHOA* Crazy thought right?

Here’s what I got from that. Some of us, are like God’s right hand, we always do what He wants, and we do it efficiently and smooth. But others, we are like His left hand. Which He uses, but is still trying you to get to do exactly what He wants done. Are we the left hand that just get the job done but a little sloppily? Do we skip a tedious task just to finish quicker? Are we short-handing God? Are we the hand that He can’t always depend on, because sometimes we just don’t get it?

Well, I am. At least, I was. I am now striving much harder to do the will of my God immediately and proficiently. I take Ezekiel 12:6 as my own : So I did as I was commanded. What a simple, yet ridiculously challenging verse.

I challenge you saints today- Do as you are commanded. Be God’s right hand man (or woman). Stay in His will and love like no one’s business.

I love you all.

In Christ,
