Dear Reader, I think I've been taking some detours lately, and I'm not even sure I was making good time. It's not that I've gone off in a ditch. I've just slowed down to take in all the sights. Unfortunately not all the sights are helping to get me to my destination.
Once again, I find myself streamlining, forcing myself to let go of some things. Choosing, hoping, trying, praying that I can "let go what's good, and find what's best".
- SUNDAY: encouragement while we're waiting
- MONDAY: reflections through the book of Ephesians
- THURSDAY: looking for and finding God in the world around us
31 Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32 All the people who don’t know God keep trying to get these things. And your Father in heaven knows that you need them.33 The thing you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what God wants. Then all these other things you need will be given to you.
Matthew 6:31-33 ICB
Dear Reader, would you please join me in prayer that I would stay focused on what I believe God has called me to do? Would you pray with me as I write the stories for kids I believe God has called me to write?
How can people invoke His name when they do not believe? How can they believe in Him when they have not heard? How can they hear if there is no one proclaiming Him?
