“The enemy wants to put guilt on us, so that we think only spending three minutes in God’s Word or having a card with a Scripture verse pasted to a mirror is trivial and won’t make a difference. But God knows where we are and delights in us. He loves that one little verse being inscribed on our hearts and is using it to speak to us in the regular rhythms of our lives.” ~ Priscilla Shirer
I don’t have a lot of time to write this.
I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t even had time to eat properly or get my normal quiet time in. I spent my lunch break trying to write and came up with nothing but distracted eyes and a restless heart (partially thanks to free coffee at work!). So now, I have a 15 minute break to drop a line to you lovely people to say, God is Good!!
This unexpected quote came from this article and I’m continually amazed at His incredible ability to comfort me wherever I am, whenever I need it! My cousin gave me a bible study book by her that I have yet to delve into, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it!
Whatever you’re doing today, it’s my prayer that you are able to have some time with Him today. Whether it be 5 minutes or an hour, don’t forget what it’s all about – living a life of thankfulness to the awesome creator who loved us enough to pay our wretched debt. And we are wretched no more! Praise God!
I hope you like the quote and I can’t wait to finally be able to sit down and share all the wonderful things Jesus has been doing in my life!
I’m definitely one of hose who doesn’t manage to squeeze in more than that little verse. I probably have the time, but sort of make Bible reading too big, so I don’t get around to do it! Weird, I know. I’ll probably learn eventually. And until then, I’m happy fpr those little verses that I have placed in my heart.
“My life is hidden with Christ in God” is what I love to think about when I am pressed beyond measure…when I am in Christ, I am in Him all the time. I can access that “quiet time” with Him whereever I am. And I do. And you are so right not to underestimate the power of those verses. When I am needing to speak truth to myself, those hidden verses pop right up!
Thank you! It was just what I needed to hear! God bless you friend!!
