Sitting with my bible open in front of beside...trying desperately to get my act together. 
It's been a rough week.  But then it always is whenever I decide to do something out of the ordinary that is spiritually good for me.  And we all know why that is...who that is.  So words to myself today...

Get it together and silence every thought that is not from the Lord!

So as I turn the pages on my bible I stop at Isaiah 55...highlighted with notes written.  So many good things in this chapter!  It reminds me to come...fall at His feet!  Drink in His Word...promises...He will give me strength!  Open my ears...Listen!  Above all...Seek HIM...JESUS!  Feed my/your soul with Him...what He gives to me/us!  Don't let yourself waste away by not coming to restore and refresh yourself in Him daily! 

We are told in verse 6:Seek the Lord while you can find Him. Call on Him now while He is near.
verse 8:"My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the Lord, "And My ways are far beyond anything you could imagine."

We gain our strength by reading the Word and spending time with the Lord.  Do it daily...multiple times daily.  You may not be able to physically sit down and read and pray but you can whisper a your heart you go about your day.  Even just mention His name...JESUS.  Oh, the you will find by just doing that one simple thing...keeping in contact with the Lord through just a whisper! 

We are as close as we want to be.  JESUS...make Him your priority.

  1. Hi Chelle, we do gain strength from reading His word. I need to dig deeper this year, and absorb myself in His word. Great reminder where we are to seek our strength and solace
    God bless my friend
