One Good Thing Every Day: January 26, 2013

I spent two rare, precious hours alone in the house. All week I have longed for just a moment to take a deep breath before jumping into the next task or rushing to the next appointment. This morning the moment presented itself, and I spent it revelling in God’s presence. Of course, He had prepared for this time in advance. Here are a few of the treasures from my readings. May they bless you as they did me.

From A Jane Austen Devotional

“If you sense that your purpose for doing something has gotten off track, ask the Lord for discernment. Take time to evaluate your heart motive in how you allocate your time. Remember, sometimes doing for others is not as important as simply being present with the Savior.”

From Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young

“Sit still in the Light of My Presence, and receive My peace. These quiet moments with Me transcend time, accomplishing far more than you can imagine. Bring me the sacrifice of your time, and watch to see how abundantly I bless you and your loved ones”

“Enjoy the tempo of a God-breathed life by letting Me set the pace. Hold my hand in childlike trust, and the way before you will open up step by step.”
