If we are “friends” on my personal Facebook page, you may have noticed a few days ago I wrote a short post about football season. My husband coaches and while I love football season and the excitement it brings, I was feeling down that we would have less time at home togetherand I would have less help with the little ones.
When talking to a fellow coach’s wife about this, she reminded me that we have to “share” our husbands. She said you can’t keep him all to yourself when he is blessing to others when you share.
That got me thinking… 1.) she is right! I know he is in the right profession and I do need to share him! I can’t be selfish and want him at home all the time when he can make an impact on more lives when he steps outside of our house! 2.) What else am I not sharing gracefully?
There are many aspects in my life that God has called me to “share.” Am I doing that? Am I sharing the things He wants me to share and am I doing it nicely?
Two things that immediately come to my mind is time and money. Do I make sharing my time everyday and making sure God is included in the 24 hours that He gives me each day? Honestly… no, not always. He is the one that gives me time, after-all. Surely I can make time to share with Him.
Do I share the money that he has blessed my family with? Honestly, probably not enough… And I am always happy to share financially? Probably not.
While reflecting on this idea of sharing and how to share our God given blessing with others, I have created a little mental list of things I need to start sharing. What is God asking you to share? I know he is asking me to share and it is my prayer I can do that happily!
