Hey! To all my faithful readers! I'm going to try something out for the month of July and we'll see how it goes. I'm going to post my 'word for the day' up on the blog and just share with you what I sense the feel the Lord speaking to me - primarily the word I feel from the scriptures themselves.
Just got in from the fireworks (before that church - which by the way was amazing!) and felt the Lord wanting to me to connect with him and hear from him for the rest of 2011.
I just read through 1 Timothy, but this is the main scripture that popped out to me -
Scripture - 1 Timothy 4:12-16 (especially verse 15)
12 Let no one despise your youth (or: look down on your youthfulness), but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine (teaching). 14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. 16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
Application: I feel the Lord 'requiring' of me this second half of the year. It is time to really, deeply 'give' of myself for the ministry the Lord has given to me. The number one and most important thing is morning prayer.
So without any further ado, I shall get done a few last minute Canada Day errands, then off to my bed to cool down and hopefully sleep soon!
HAPPY CANADA DAY - time to rock the next 6 months of 2011!!!!
