Here we are friends, the final stretch. Are you growing weary or are you ready to finish this journey strong? I continue to appreciate the specific portions and prompts as well as Rachel’s own words. I love that on Day 33 we find the following invitation: “Sit quietly in God’s presence before picking up your pen.” I am one who is almost always holding a pen. If I pick up my Bible, I grab a pen. If I go to read a book, or periodical, sure enough, I am holding a pen. Open a book what is being used as a bookmark (for shame) and what will you find? A pen. When I seek God…yup, pen time. But there comes a time when we must lay our pens down and be still. The Lord Himself has reminded me and now I get the official reminder along our journey (just in case I’ve forgotten). How about you? Do you need to be reminded to be still before Him? To empty out all of your busy thoughts, dumping them at His feet and asking Him to fill you with His peace instead?
Day 33 (Luke 19:1-6)
Rachel writes, “The forty days are almost finished (48 for us!); are you still enjoying this time of seeking Jesus, or are you struggling to make time for prayer? Sit quietly in God’s presence before picking up your pen. Use your written prayer to ask God to surround your day with holy stillness and peace.”
“God will meet you in the stillness.”
Consider sharing what you wrote from Day 33, or share how you are doing on the journey as we approach our final week. If you are visiting/new and want to take a moment and experience what it’s like to journey with this book, then take some time to read the verse and pray with your pen. Feel free to share in the comments, or link up a post if you have a blog about what God speaks to your heart through the above scripture passage.
My portion:
**********************************
Lord, I trust you for forgiveness and grace when I choose lesser things over your glory. How faithful you are! How patient! 
Lord, I thank you for Heaven within and peace that travels wherever I am because You are with me. 
Lord, I thank you for stillness in the midst of busy-ness.
May I be sensitive to the balance you desire for my days.
Lord, I thank you that you are my peace and you fill me with your holy stillness. 
***********************************
See you next week when Rachel will be joining us for our grand finally!
