ACCOUNTABLE, 15NOV

Recent discussion at my retreat committee meeting was on the term “accountability”.

Fraying over it doesn’t matter, but while I was PRAYING on accountability (actually just letting God populate my thoughts),  I realized we have to think about what we are ACCOUNTABLE to and for – more like “Who” – WHO ARE WE ACCOUNTABLE TO?!

Here’s my devotion:

 

ACCOUNTABLE

To God we count – we are countable and we are held ACCOUNTABLE.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to remember we count as a child of God.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to respect God and respect His instructions.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to remember that we are worthy of saving.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to Jesus and believe that He saves us, indeed.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to remember there is NOTHING we can do to prevent His pursuit of us.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to ask to be moved by the Holy Spirit who needs us to be active in our spiritual growth.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to be ambitious in sharing the knowledge of our Lord.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to explain and expand our JOY in knowing Him.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to SHINE even when we feel dull.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to help others and help them SHINE.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to hold ourselves above the fray of life on earth, to know where His LIGHT invades our darkness.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to live WHOLE lives, only a fraction is from us, the rest is from the Lord.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to glue our broken lives together NOT from worldly glue traps but with healing from Him.

We are ACCOUNTABLE for NOT sweating the small stuff.

We are ACCOUNTABLE for not stirring up where old dust has already settled.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to BELIEVE.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to believe in Him even thru the most awful of awfulness.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to look up – not give up, not give in.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to be the EXQUISITE child of God that He formed from the most detailed pieces of His dust.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to be LOVED.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to LOVE.

We are ACCOUNTABLE to LIVE.

WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO BE FOREVER HIS.

AMEN
