I have been seeking a deeper intimacy with the Lord.
Worship with music.
Quiet time listening to the Lord.
I must confess that the last few years I’ve allowed distractions to interrupt¬†this time.
The Lord continues to remind me that He created me for an intimate relationship with Him. When I choose these distractions over my time with Him, I definitely feel it. Things just aren’t right.
At a recent women’s retreat, I enjoyed my time sitting at this pond with my Bible open, pen in hand and a sweet worship album playing on my phone. Oh Lord, help me to continue to find this place of intimacy with you.
Following my retreat, I received this word in my email box from Marsha Burns who shares beautiful messages on her website at http://ft111.com/smallstraws.htm
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Many of you, My people, are awakening to a new level of intimacy with Me, says the Lord.¬† But, you must be alert and aware that the enemy of your souls will release lies and a¬†spirit of lethargy to convince you that it takes too much effort to walk in the Spirit.¬† Refuse to go back or give up.¬† The discipline that it takes is well worth the progress that you are making.¬†¬†Proverbs¬†15:19¬†The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns, but the way of the upright is a highway.
I love God’s timing! I am refusing to go back or give up!
Think about your time with God. Are you making time for him? I hope so.
Bless you with a deeper intimacy with The Father.
