Ahhhh, sunflowers! Ohhhh, August! What a mixed bunch of feelings come with the calendar page turning this month. August is always a tremendously busy month. The garden is needing harvesting, preparation for our schooling begins, the summer projects need completing, soccer practices and games go into full swing, birthdays need to be remembered, kids still need rides here and there, and that's in addition to all the regular daily life kind of things. Whew!
Perhaps all of that is a good reason to focus on the verse for the month: "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." ~ Matthew 6:21
If God is the treasure of your life, your heart will be focused on Him as your main priority. And when your heart is focused on Him, daily life goes a whole lot smoother. Why? If you've made time for Him, it's fascinating to see how much more you accomplish and with a better attitude to go with it.
It's a matter of handing Him your "to do" list with a flexible heart to see what He will do with it.
While the sunflowers are shining during this month of August, treasure the God who loves you and watch Him work in your heart and life!
