A new season

The Lord is walking me through a new season of life. To be honest I am not completely sure what He is doing. But, I do know that He is "traveling" beside me,

"For they drank from the spiritual Rock that traveled with them, and that Rock was Christ." Hebrews 10:4

My husband just finished a book called, "Agape Leadership--lessons in spiritual leadership from the life of R.C. Chapman" and highly recommended me to read it. This what touched me this morning,

"The book of God is a store of manna for God's pilgrim children...The great cause of neglecting the scriptures is not want of time, but want of heart, some idol taking the place of Christ. Satan has been marvelously wise to entice away God's people from the Scripture. A child of God who neglects the scripture cannot make it his business to please the Lord of Glory; cannot make Him Lord of the conscience; ruler of the heart; the joy, portion, and treasure of the soul...If the bible be used aright by anyone, it will be to him the most pleasant book in the world." Page 17

I will be doing much less blogging (if I post it will be mostly photos) and spending more time in the Word and more time listening to the Lord. I believe that He is doing something that will require great sacrifice of both my time and my self.

Nice quote.

I cannot imagine what work you are embarking into that requires MORE of a sacrifice of time and energy than raising your children already does!

Your past few posts have clearly hinted that you are about to start a new work that will be a big challenge.

Grace and Peace to you as you travel along with the Savior!

GREAT!!! I have made it habit that I don't blog unless- I have been in the WORD today, and my kids and husband's needs are met. Hard to do sometime, but temptation otherwise would over take me.
