Stress and the Body

So I’m pretty much always busy doing something or going somewhere because I live in a fast paced area. Going to school and working doesn’t really help that much. I’ve started getting severe cramps on the left side of my neck from carrying my purse/school bag. There really isn’t much of a point to this except a chance to complain a small bit about how school is literally a pain in the neck!

Onto other things!

This week Pastor Matt challenged us to put God FIRST. As I was listening to him read a passage of scripture I heard, for the first time,
“Honor the LORD from your wealth
And from the first of all your produce;”
I always knew that we were supposed to tithe first and foremost but the way it read in the NASB version (above) also sounds as though we should give from what we produce. Some of us do only generate wealth in monetary means but some of us create things. Abundant Love has been looking for people to help make quilts for kids in the system. I sew. I put this together and decided that, for me, “the first of all your produce” also applies to all things I produce with my hands and I should be dedicating the first portion to God rather than myself. Also, I always start my day preparing myself for what’s to come but I don’t really include Him in that process. I’ve also decided to start doing a little one on one time with God in the morning before I jet off. The first of everything. Just some thoughts I was thinking.
