Jan 12,2011

                                                        Jesus Calling  by Sarah Young,
                                                          Devotions for Every Day ..
                                  What God is saying  to YOU  Today !
Let Me Prepare you for the day that stretches out before you.
I know exactly what this day will contain,
whereas you have only vague ideas about it
You would like to see a map, showing all the twist
and turns of your journey.
You'd feel more prepared if you could somehow
visualize what is on the road ahead.
However, there is a better way to be prepared for
whatever you will encounter today....
Spend quality time with Me...
I will not show you what is on the road ahead,
but I will thoroughly equip you for the journey.
My living Presence is your Companion each step of the way.
Stay in continual communication with Me,
whispering My Name whenever you need to
redirect your thoughts.
Thus you can walk through this day with your
focus on Me.
My abiding Presence is the best road map available...

Exodus 33:14/ John 15:4~7

Karen,
Thank you for the reminder. I'm doing much better with this but it's always nice to be reminded. Take care.

That is beautiful!

I have yet to visit and not hear the confirming Word from Daddy when I read your post. And as always, perfect timing, a word in due season. I have been moving slower today because of the weight of a very personal concern that I keep before Him. I do ok most days to walk in faith and not in my "old" waffle walk, but just like today, well.... Thank you.
How I just love you my dearest Friend! Thank you for this very timely reminder.

xoxo,
Ellen

Hi Karen :) :)
Thanks for your post. I've been really struggling with spending daily time reading my Bible...but your post today only confirmed what God had been gently putting on my heart to do :) :) I've also committed myself to memorizing Scripture too!!!

Oh, I LOVE your new blogger header...new to me :) :) What program did you use to create the three-photo collage? Have a great rest of the week. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :) :)

p.s. Let me know when you have a new blog button, so I can update my page and add it ;) :)

I couldn't agree more and I would love to go on a walk on that path, so pretty! I trust God totally and I know he is with me. (PS. Yes, come visit! ) :D

Good thoughts - "I will not show you what is on the road ahead, but I will ...equip you for the journey."

Reminds me of an old gospel song, something like "I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know Who holds tomorrow."

God bless you - Marsha Young
