He Must Be A Constant

I am beginning to realize that I do best when I am drenched in the Word.  Whether it be through talking with someone about the Lord....listening to music...reading His Word....or listening to anointed preaching....He must be a constant in my life.  I've thought about this before but this week I have really come to know this for sure. 

I begin my day at 5 a.m. this morning and started reading the Bible shortly after.  I took about two hours reading and writing and then decided I was ready to meet the real day that was waiting for me.  By 3 p.m. I knew I needed more.  I picked up a book called The Blood and the Glory.  Flipping to the last of the book I read about ten pages.  It was something I really needed to read today.  Just reading about the things that happened in peoples lives, because of the work of the Holy Spirit, refreshed me enough to finish my day on a good note.

Do you remember the V8 commercial that goes something like this....

There are people walking down the street of a city but instead of being upright they are tilted to one side.  Then someone hands one of them a can of V8....they drink it....and they instantly start walking upright.  The response from someone else that was tilted and saw this was....WOW....I should have had a V8!! 

Well, that reminds me of how I let myself get.  I was walking with a major tilt....almost ready to tip completely over.  I should have made myself drink from the well of the Lord.  Then I would have been walking upright and saying....WOW....there is nothing like drinking from the well of Living Water!  In my mind that is essentially the Believers V-8. 

What I'm trying to say is this....

As a believer, you just can't keep going strong without including the Lord in your day.  You need to talk to Him and you need to stay in His Word.  You will eventually die....spiritually....if you don't eat from the table of the Lord.  Your soul needs to be fed just like your body does if you want to survive.  So many good things happen when we spend time with the Lord.  One of the verses I really like talks about how we will find rest for our souls....freedom from our burdens....healing and peace with God....if we will just spend time with Him.  I now that is true because it has happened for me just this week. 

Matthew 11:28-29

Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you.  Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

"until we see JESUS....face to face"


  1. Woot! Amen!
    Staying in the Word is very important. Surrounding ourselves with Him is what we need especially since this world is so full of things that will draw us away from Father. How can we know Him unless we spend time with Him and if we really want to know Him we need to spend lots of time with Him reading His story for us.
    Good for you!

  2. Yes, it took me awhile but I finally got back on the right side of things! LOL Thanks for always praying.
    Blessings ~ Chelle

  3. Amen Chelle,
    we couldn't have a better saviour to come to. He is One who is constantly in my mind and whose word has proved true many times in my life.
    God bless

    1. So true. Thank you Brenda for your encouragement.
      God Bless you

  4. Hi Chelle! How fun to be back in touch. Let's keep it going!
    I do remember that commercial, and what a brilliant use of it here! It fits so nicely with my post on prayer too. We all need to get grounded and centered in the Lord, or I know I can fly off and not hear him or be blessed by him.
    You are being called, and you are answering that call to prayer and reading. God loves that!! Good for you, and you are a wonderful role model for me. Two hours of prayer? Wow.

    I hope you are feeling well and life is treating you kindly,

  5. Hi Ceil ~ It is great to be back in touch! I've missed you here and reading your posts as well. But ~ God is good and we are back on the track! Let's not get carried away with that role model stuff. Lol That was 2 hours of reading, writing and some prayer. However....someday a role model for someone would be good. Right now though....Hmmmm.

    I will talk to you soon. Blessings...Chelle
