Father, You are well aware that I am heading into a very full and hectic time of year. After 15 years that is really nothing new…but our time together in the midst of it is. I truly need to spend quality time with You each day and getting home at midnight or 1:00 am some days and leaving home at 5 or 6:00 am is going to make things much more difficult. Help me, Father, to be determined to carve out time for us…it must be a priority for me!
2 Timothy 1:15-18 (<<click here)
Lord, no matter whom or where we are, we must be diligent in pursuing our relationship with You. In my passage this morning Paul refers to three individuals by name. All of them had relationships with him but only one of them stuck with him, the other two deserted him. Once again my opening thoughts are in alignment with what you want me to deal with as I read Your Word – You continue to set things up perfectly for me. Over and over again You show that they were orchestrated just for me for “such a time as this.” Esther 4:14 Thank You for Your Love, Jesus!
Lord, as the old hymn says, (<<click to listen to the hymn!)
“I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior!
I come to Thee.”
Our time together is sweet. It sustains me thru the press of the day. For me to accomplish Your calling on my life, time with You is the one necessity that I cannot do without. You are truly a “Love that wilt not let me go.” (another old hymn)
