“Spending time with God is the key to our strength and success in all areas of life. Be sure that you never try to work God into your schedule, but always work your schedule around Him.”
As I go through the next 100 Days I intend on putting Scripture Study into my daily life. I currently pray and speak with my Father in Heaven on a regular basis...yet something has been missing.
There is so much to be learned by studying His Word.
So today, I gathered my supplies, sat down at my studio table, said a prayer and began reading.
I have always loved and admired Joyce Meyer and was so blessed to have found her book "100 Ways to Simplify Your Life" at our local library!
Today's devotion was taken from Philippians 4:6...it was all about the importance of doing ONE thing at a time. Could that not be more relevant for me as I begin my 100 Days? As I read verse 6 it was placed upon my heart to re-write in a way I understood in my notebook. So here is my version of that scripture....
"Do not be excessively worried-but in everything humbly pray with Thanksgiving...let your requests (your heartfelt desires) be made known to God."
I do tend to worry about tomorrow, next week, next year. I can have myself so worked up into a frenzy about stuff that probably won't ever happen...but I have it in my mind it will. I must trust that the Lord will take care of my Tomorrow. He wants me to be happy in the NOW.
I am so grateful for quiet mornings...for a place to go and feel safe and warm. I am grateful for my family who understands me and loves me. And I am so grateful I am going on this 100 Day journey so I can let my heart go. So I can be at peace with who I am.
Are you taking this journey with me? If you are, I hope you will share your thoughts, your blogs, your art with me!!
