A Time of Refelction

Yesterday I had a chance to run....I know what all of you are saying, "you ran". Close your mouths. I actually enjoyed my time alone running, just to reflect and spend time with My Papa in Heaven. So many times we are so caught up with the hustle and bustle of life that we don't take time to "Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10). I so long to have that time to spend first thing in the morning reading my bible and reflecting on the day ahead, but as we know I like to sleep and sometimes,well a lot of times, don't get up until the sweet peas wake up.

I finished a book a friend gave me to read and so recommend it to everyone, (The Shack, by William Young). This to me is what our lives should be like with our heavenly father. I really enjoyed every aspect of the book and think that we put too much thought into everything and don't just take life the way God intended it to be, Pure Simplicity~.

I hope that each of you will have "a time of relection" each day to spend alone and meditating on what your heavenly papa has in store for you each day.

What does God have in store for us?

Good morning to all,
These days I find myself turning to God more each day to meet my needs. I know He says :For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." ~Jeremiah 29:11-14

Do you ever have those days where you are wondering where it is that God is taking you. I want to go wherever he sends us but the hard thing for me is being patient and waiting on God's timing. I pray that if you are struggling today with the plans that God has laid for you that you can be encouraged along with myself to know that "He will never leave you nor forake you."
