Whatsoever He Sayeth Unto You

I am speechless. Really. Although I have two series and 1 devotional post in the works, I really don't know what to write today. Actually, I was supposed to post yesterday but didn't post until today because I was waiting on inspiration. I finally got it--I think.

Maybe I've said enough. So often I am guilty of "ever learning" and not really applying. A recent example is reading health articles while chomping on cookies. Oops! Maybe you are at that place today. God has spoken to you through preachers, books, music and perhaps even bloggers (I sure hope He speaks through mine!). Yet you keep reading.

Today is the day for doing. Has God spoken about an area that needs diligence in your marriage or parenting? How about your love and care for your home? Does your personal life---your time, your clothing, your entertainment---need a makeover from Him? Is there a ministry to your family or others that He is laying upon your heart (one that doesn't interfere with his first priorities for you)?

I challenge you to go and DO that one thing today. Not through your own power and determination, however. I know and you know how quickly we fall on our faces when we try that. I'd love to sit with each one of you individually and personally pray for you today. Since I can't do that, I would like to pray with you now.

Dear Father,

We love You and thank You for the many gifts You've bestowed upon us such as salvation and family and friends. We thank You for Your Word and how it speaks to us practically right where we are. Today I pray that You will speak again Your will to each heart that is reading today. Give each one the strength and power to do that thing that You are asking of her. Remind us that Your Word says, "I can do all things through Christ Who strengtheneth me." Walk beside us today and let your Presence be keenly felt as we go about the myriad duties of our day.

In the Precious Name of Your Son, Jesus,

If you feel you can share, I'd love to hear about how it goes today as you do "whatsoever he sayeth unto you"!
