“How Would My Mom Think?”


I organized our grandson’s closet this past May when in Chicago visiting.  I love organizing.  To me it is a fun task of just putting ‘like’ things together in ways that make life easier to deal with day to day.

So yesterday when I got this text from my daughter-in-law, it threw me.  “Sorry to bug you but do you per chance remember where you put Rowan’s swimming trunks when you organized his closet?  I can’t seem to find them.”  In three minutes another text message came “Never mind!  We found them!  Sorry for the bother.”

When I replied that I was sorry that they could not find items right away, here’s the reply I received that made me smile and actually laugh aloud:  “Hey it was no problem!  Colby went in and thought ‘how would my mom think?’ and then he was able to find them right away.  It was funny!”

Sometimes I wonder what is happening in the cluttered closet of unknowns in my life.  Then I remember to ask “How would My Jesus think?”  “In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.”  (Phillippians 2:5)  Jesus was humble.  Jesus was obedient.  Jesus was a pray-er.  Jesus was a reader of Scripture.  Jesus was faithful to His Father’s Will and not His own.  Jesus was a servant.  Jesus was an example to us.

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.  In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your path.”

Can’t find your way?  “How would my Heavenly Father think?” will bring His revelations.
