Seeking God: My full attention

Reading: Psalm 33:1-12

Christ: Spend some time with me today. Just for a moment put all your worries and cares in a jar on the shelf and focus on Me. I merely spoke and the heavens were created. I breathed and the stars were born. Do you realize then, that if I can do these things, I could surely love you better thank your tiny mind can imagine? Be still with me today and get to know me. For time is what all relationships need.

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.5 The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love..jpg

Think: What kind of time do I spend with Jesus? Distracted time, worried time, clock-watching time. How can I make the most of the small quiet time I have cut out for myself, instead of whiling it away by distractions of daily life? Perhaps this is a warning that I’m trusting in the busyness of life to make me feel accomplished. But my busyness doesn’t save me, Jesus does.

Pray: Dear Jesus, Thank you for loving to spend time with us. Thank you for your tender care for all our daily hurdles. Sometimes I put more trust in the things that I do for you, than in you yourself. Help me to recognize this as it’s happening and give me the strength and reserve to flip that trust over to you. Jesus, I trust in you. Jesus, I rest in you. Let me sing a new song to you with my life today and seek to find your unfailing love. Amen.

Quality, not Quantity!

“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!
