TIME A Precious Commodity

This picture of a Bible is truly sad.  Yet, across our nation each and every day Christians allow the day to end without any time in the scriptures.  It is God's love letter to us.  He is hungry for a relationship with his children.

I can look at my own children and grandchildren to understand the concept.  Most of our children don't live in the same state we do. Almost half of our grandchildren live at least 8 hours away.  I long to hear their voices. I wait in anticipation for the mail each day to see if I have gotten a letter from one of our sons.  My eyes light up when the phone rings and it is one of our children.  Oh how I love to hear their voices. 

Scripture tells us that God loves us much more than we could ever comprehend.
God Is Love
7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 4:7-10 (ESV)

If the Master of the Universe was willing to give up his one and only son for us, then precious one, we can certainly give up some time with him each and every day.

Last time I talked about the verse in Romans 12:1 that says we are supposed to be living sacrifices.  This is step number ONE.  Sacrifice some time along with me as we search for ways to become the kind of women God has for us.

Till next time  :)
In Christ Alone,

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".

  1. I am thankful that yesterday as we hurried home from SC to get to the hospital in Indiana to see my husband's mom, God was watching out for us. She had fallen in the nursing home and broken her hip. She was having surgery as we were trying to get there. We have much to be thankful for yesterday. First, we encountered a HUGE rainstorm in southern KY on the interstate. We could hardly see the road. Most of us had our emergency flashers on and some had stopped under several overpasses to wait it out. Soon, there was a short time when there was no one anywhere in front of us across all 3 lanes of traffic. There was a vehicle shortly behind us in the lane to our left, the middle lane. All of a sudden Jerry saw in the corner of his left eye a vehicle speeding up the fast lane, barely got in front of our vehicle and the one to our left and hydroplaned and spun around several times about 2 car lengths in front of us! Jerry had softly tapped the brakes to slow down and so glad he did. The silver sports car would have spun right into us. He didn't stop until he spun over the to shoulder and the back end of his car went up the soft grassy hill and the front end came to rest in the ditch. I am sure that he was ok, but hopefully shook up so he won't pull something that dumb again. He endangered several others with his need to speed in a very dangerous situation. We stopped when we could down the road as the rain died down. We pulled into a parking lot and Jerry said he was still shaking. I am thankful that no one was hurt as it could have been terrible for a lot of us. Thank you God for protecting all of us:) Also, Jerry's mom came out of hip surgery just fine. God was watching out for us all around!
