Blogging Milestone

Well apparently I now have over 100 followers!

104 to be exact.

Thanks to you all for reading and subscribing to my posts! It means the world to me that you care enough to read what little ole me has to say. 🙂

I’ve actually had this blog for quite some time now but didn’t get serious about it until this past summer.

Reaching 100 followers probably isn’t that big of a deal but I still think it’s pretty cool. So once again, thanks for reading!

Always put Jesus first!

Verse of the day:

This is how we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his spirit.

1 John 4:13a

Being Still, Finding Rest

See the source imageSometimes, with the hustle and bustle of life, finding time for God can be very difficult. We’re all busy with this activity and that activity. The stresses of work or school consume us.
But we must find the time to spend with God. We need to make it a priority in our lives.
Psalm 37:7 says “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him. 
It is in the stillness that we can hear His soft voice whispering to us, calming our anxious thoughts.
We find our rest in Him and Him alone. Psalm 62:1 tells us “truly my soul finds rest in God, my salvation comes from Him.”  Further down in the same Psalm it adds that our “hope comes from Him.
We also are given peace when we spend time with the Lord. Isaiah 26:3 says “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast because they trust in You. 
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
We cannot hear the Lord when we are so busy with our lives. We cannot afford to ignore the Lord.
Can you hear his gentle whisper?
