“Take your chances on God. Put your life in His hands. Newness doesn’t come from yourself. It comes from faith in Him.” ~ Beth Moore
We are on a journey here, if you happen to stumble upon this post today. A small group of us are following along in a daily prioritization of praying through 70 days using Whispers of Hope by Beth Moore. Don’t hurry off, you are welcome to linger with us.
Well, my fellow sojourners, I do hope that you are giving yourself grace, regardless of your pace. Did you have any favorite devotions, scripture or quotes from your reading this week?
Is your prayer time growing in priority, or are you still struggling to squeeze it in? I want to encourage you to stay the course.
As for me, I am starting to hit my stride, and I want to tell you a little tip that might help you along your way if you are finding it is more challenging or less fruitful than you anticipated. Every day is different, yes? Does God not know, our busy schedules? Indeed. But, He still desires us to linger with Him. He desires more to linger with us, ready to recharge our worn down batteries for the day. I am finding that there are some days, I spend more time in some topics than others. This makes sense, right? Some days, I linger with Him in Repentance, or Intercession, or Equipping. Or Praise…but this makes sense if you think about it. As the Spirit leads us into sincere fellowship with God, He discerns and leads us where we need to be for our soul to align with God for that particular moment. Be flexible. Relax. He loves you and this is not about jumping through spiritual hoops!
I hope you got to read the Wednesday E-mail. I almost blogged that as a post! But God, led my heart to these words tonight (Saturday), so here you have them.
*If anyone would like the Whispers of Hope Bookmark I made, I would be happy to e-mail it to you, just let me know! I had a sweet sister on Instagram inquire, so thought I would mention it here.
Stay the course my friends, don’t look back, don’t catch up- start where you are right now. Yesterday is gone, let’s take it slow and steady- keeping our eyes fixed on our One True Living God.
