Morning Direction From Scripture 12-16-17

Well it has been several weeks since I published one of these meditations and I think it is time to begin again.


Concord 1

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

We are in the height of the Christmas season this morning. Following the advice of verse 32, what do you need to take a little INTERLUDE  from today?


Share Your World 2017 Dec. 4,2017


Cee’s weekly questions have become one of my favorite writing exercises. I just love the opportunity to give everyone a little peek behind the curtain of my life and I love reading about the lives of others across the world.

Below are this week’s questions and my answers. When you have finished click HERE and go to Cee’s site to read her other contributors.

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?

I don’t mind most housework. That said I am not a very good housekeeper. I guess if I had to pick a least favorite I would say ironing. I don’t. That is why God made sweaters and vests.

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

My prayer life is the most vibrant part of my life right now. I am feeling very challenged to a deeper relationship with God.

How many times have you moved in the last ten years?

I have moved once. That’s a short sentence for a very long story.

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. 

This thought really challenged and encouraged me this week:

Thankful Thursdays 12-7-17

Life has kept me a little distracted.  I am so sorry I have been absent from the blogosphere so often.

In all the changes and twists in life right now I am still so thankful for this season and all He is doing in it.

I feel like these moments are the culmination of  years of Holy Ghost work in my life. This song certainly isn’t Christmassy by any stretch of the imagination but it certainly speaks to where I have been, where I am and where I am going.
