I read a Blog from Chats with an Old Lady. Since I have just started this Blog this week I wanted to start this Friday with something she does called What Are You Learning Friday? Here is the link to her site, if you would like to see where this oriented from. I have a feeling you may see this on many Blogger sites soon, as it will spread and people will want to participate for themselves. http://chatswithanoldlady.blogspot.com/
This week my goal has been to share how important it is to remember to live in today. Not yesterday where we can have regrets over what has not been finished, what we did, what, what...., or the future where we can live in fear over whatever, or anxiety etc... But today. Today is the day that God wants us to be with Him. To read His Word, To Pray to Him, to walk with Him daily in order for Him to speak to us, teach us, love us and strengthen us. He also wants to bestow many Blessings on us. To help us through our daily troubles and continue to guide us so that we are walking in His ways. I also tried to point out a few of the 7000 promises God gives us in his Word, the Bible. I also started writing to remind us of a few things.
That the Light we receive from God, his Inspiration is gained through these acts by us
Daily Reading in His Word- not just a bible study but even a single chapter of the bible, or study on something from the bible- digging deeper into a verse etc.
Daily Writing- journaling. For example from what spoke to you while you read about His Word, or a promise of God that you want to claim for yourself. Even writing about things you are grateful for, that you want to Pray Thanksgiving for, or things you want to and need to lay at His Feet.
Daily Meditation - example memorizing something of God's Word. This week I chose a verse that I had personally heard in church. It was from Isaiah 43: 18-19
"Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past. See,I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wastelands."
Lastly Daily Application- how you will apply His word and your learning to your life.
So this Friday I have learned much as I continue to read personally and share with you each day. I will continue our reading and writing together in the next post with today's Reading and Message. I appreciate you giving me a few minutes of your time and I pray that God blesses your life and you find your time with Him speaking to your heart.
