Time is running down here in 2017! This is the last Share Your World Post of this year! My answers to Cee’s Share Your World Questions are below and the answers of the rest of the Share Your World Clan can be found by clicking the underlined link which will take you to Cee’s site.

Here are my thoughts as I close out the year.

What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?

All this week I have been taking some time to regroup from the busyness of the season. As the new year approaches I am taking hold of a new confession…In my jubilee year I AM GOING TO SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY THE JOURNEY!

List at least five of your favorite spices? (excluding salt and pepper)

I love coriander, cumin, cilantro, basil, and oregano…Ok I know that most of those are herbs but still…

What can you always be found with?

My canvas carrying bag. Which is generally filled with books, notebooks, journals, pens and schedules…Oh and my phone.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Thoughts On Prayer 12-29-17

100_2057

There is prayer that avails much and there is prayer that avails little. Most of our prayer avails little because we spend our time in prayer focusing on problems and concerns. We need to first come to the throne of grace and look at the all sufficiency of the One who sits upon it. This is prayer that avails much!

When once we have been swallowed whole by the greatness of His majesty, we have only a little way to go to have our prayers answered. Then and only then should we employ prayer that avails little…intercession…petition. These should be the least part of our prayers. All else should be basking, being swallowed whole in the Presence of God.

Just sit with Him Christian. Sit with Him in silence and wait for the slightest flutter of His robe. When you see Him move then you move, you pray in the same direction.

Here is our meditation…

Let Egypt come with gifts of precious metals[e];
    let Ethiopia[f] bring tribute to God.
32 Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth.
    Sing praises to the Lord. Interlude
33 Sing to the one who rides across the ancient heavens,
    his mighty voice thundering from the sky.
34 Tell everyone about God’s power.
    His majesty shines down on Israel;
    his strength is mighty in the heavens.
35 God is awesome in his sanctuary.
    The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people.

Praise be to God! Psalm 68:31-35

Describe God’s sanctuary.
