Time for this week's link up with Karen Beth for Tuesday @ Ten where we have a full week to write on the word prompt.
This week's word is:
This word reminds me of the scripture -
Sometimes in order to be "renewed",
we must "wait on the Lord";
we must take the time to stop what we are doing
and listen to what He is saying.
but waiting to listen to His way insures it will be right -
according to His plans!
Now, I'm not saying I do this all the time!
I am not that faithful to Him; and I admit it!
I try to take the time first thing in the mornings to be in His Word
and journal my thoughts and feelings about that day's devotion...
Most days I find myself writing down the Scripture,
Thought for the Day, and a few sentences
(either from the message or from my thoughts).
But, am I really taking His words to heart?
Am I really learning from what I am reading?
In these quiet moments - sometimes not so quiet,
I am trying to renew my strength...
so I can soar in ways only He can give;
so I can run without being constantly tired;
and so I can walk and not faint.
So I can do what God has put before me
to do with my life!
The only way this is possible
is through my dependence on Him and His Word.
in my home, my church, my community...
with my family, my friends, and the strangers around me. Amen.
