Do you know about this little book? I got it last year in the middle of the year and it has been one of the most delightful tools in learning more about just how Jesus speaks to me. I just have been so inspired by reading a small paragraph from it each day after my morning time in God's Word.
I just wanted to share today's message. It spoke to me so much about how I needed to take the time to let God speak to me. My mind is always going in hundreds of directions, whether it be insignificant, like taking one load of laundry out of the washer and put in the dryer, or needing to get ready to go somewhere or thinking what I need to be doing for a church member in need.
Today's message just spoke to me. Maybe it will you too.
"Relax in My Healing Presence. As you spend time with Me, your thoughts tend to jump ahead to today's plans and problems. Bring your mind back to Me for refreshment and renewal. Let the Light of My Presence soak into you, as you focus your thoughts on Me. Thus I equip you to face whatever the day brings."
(And here is the sentence that jumped off the page to me this morning:)
"THIS SACRIFICE OF TIME PLEASES ME AND STRENGTHENS YOU."
"Do not skimp on our time together. Resist the clamor of tasks waiting to be done. You have chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from you."
Based on Psalm 105:4 and Luke 10: 39-42
Lord, let me learn to spend quality time with you because I certainly need your strength today and the days ahead in this new year. Amen!
