Philippians 2:13 New Living Translation (NLT)
13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Please work in me, giving me the desire and the power to do what pleases You. Amen
“Write, write, write. I hear you, lord, but what should I write about.” Every time I get quiet, these are the words that I hear running through my head over and over again. I am not much of a writer. English and writing were my worst subjects in school. When the other girls my age were aspiring to be poets and writers, I was playing with wrenches and screw drivers. So, why me and why now? I honestly don’t have any answers. But the bible verse above assures me that He will work in me to do what pleases him. He has a reason.
We’ve lost a huge spiritual leader this week in Reverend Billy Graham. I never saw him speak but I remember his name well from growing up. He was everywhere, all the time. You could hardly turn on TV and not hear about him. I’ve been watching interviews with various Priests and Pastors on news programs and they all are speaking such kind words about him. Now that he’s passed, I wish I would have paid more attention and listened to him.
For lent I was going to go into my bible and do my bible study. A little more than 1 week later and I haven’t done a very good job. I’m disappointed with myself. But rather than give up and throw the baby out with the bathwater, I’ll keep trying. If I have to, I’ll start over each day. One day at a time, each hour at a time, each minute at a time, I will find my way towards living in God’s word and having a relationship with Him.
May God’s peace be with you,
