Giveaway Winner! / Taking Time to be With God
Last night, the time had come to choose the winner of Sunday Best's Blogoversary Giveaway.
All the names were in the hat.
The suspense grew as I mixed up the entries.
Who would it be?!? How intense could my face get?!?
( I have to post this pic to remind you that most of what ends up on here is the
cream of the crop out of many silly shots :P)
*drum roll please*
So, what have you ladies been up to lately? I am quite busy this week (yes, I said that AGAIN) with a small cold to boot! This whole "being an adult" thing can get kind of exhausting. ;) Anyway, I just might be able to get an outfit post up tomorrow afternoon or evening. It's been far too long!
Whatever you are up to, I hope that you are taking time to be with the Lord each day. Even when your day seems completely full, try your best. Most of us have little nuggets of time we could be spending with the King. For example, I brought my Bible to my babysitting job today and had devotional time while the baby I was caring for took a nap.
Sometimes, I can feel extra stress coming on when I haven't had quiet time with God in a couple of days - that's right folks...I'm not always faithful with my quiet times! Those dry spells remind me of how much I need it. Though we should not be so strict with our devotional times that it just makes things more stressful, being faithful does take discipline, because our flesh doesn't want to sit around praying and reading the Word. I encourage you to find the balance between schedule and spontaneity in your walk with the Lord and take time to be with Him.
Can you relate to having extra stress or anxiety during times when
you haven't taken time to be with the Lord?
Do you lean more towards have a strict, scheduled quiet time or a relaxed one?
"But from there you will seek the your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul."
