Key Bible Verse: Gideon said to him, "Me, my master? How and with what could I ever save Israel? Look at me. My clan's the weakest in Manasseh and I'm the runt of the litter." (Judges 6:15, The Message)

This is a great way to get focus back in a day. When things get tough, monotonous, that is when we need to remember you are being molded by God. Great read. Patience to persevere.

Let me preface this story by stating my profession--an elementary school Resource Teacher. Well , it's June and I've been ready for summer to arrive for @ least 2 months now. And, like the rest of my profession am diligently going through the check out list to ensure myself that all is in order before leaving for 'my summer job.' The principal is doing a similar process with my files to ensure that they 'meet her standards.' When she calls me into the file room where she was working, and indicates she has discovered 'an error that needs to be corrected before my departure.' To me it's not as big a deal as she's making it out to be, and, yes, 'correcting it' will throw my schedule in total disarray. To make a long story short, we finally came to a mutually agreed compromise that brought the issue to conclusion. Looking back on it, if I had accepted the correction as pointed out I would have minimized grief on my part. Listen to God. Do not fight Him for control. God always wins.

Sometimes we look back into history and place leaders on such a high pedestal based on their successes not realizing how they truly viewed themselves. How will my actions today be seen be others in the future?
