Hello everyone! Well...here I am again! I hope you all had a very nice weekend and a good start to your week! It was a great weekend for me, as I was able to catch up on some rest and just do whatever came to mind. Now, as I'm writing you...I'm enjoying my evening, with my feet up on the daybed, while I look out to the backyard and enjoy a late autumn night.
I just love our backyard at night because we have a yard light out there; so everything kind of comes aglow...even in the darkest night. The only thing I don't like; is the unusual creatures that enter our yard. So far...since I've used this room as my office, I have seen birds, squirrels, raccoons, a skunk...oh my and let's not forget that big moose that parked itself along side my window. Have you ever had a moose look sideways at you through the window...especially when you're sitting right next to the window? Well...I can tell you one thing...this is one experience you would never forget. My husband says that maybe the next thing I'll see is a bear; so I have to admit...there are times at night, when I hesitate, as to whether I want to peer out my window.
Anyways...today has been a good day! I started my day out with God and we studied the 23rd chapter of Proverbs together. You know...it seems like God knows just what I need for the day and if you were here...listening to me; you would probably here... "Oh my!" or "Wow...I really need that today!"...or even..."Yes Lord!" I really think that if we were to not only read God's word but truly look deep into what we are reading; then God would allow us to experience the "hidden treasures" that await those, who seek it, with all their heart.
Today, as I was studying the 23rd chapter of Proverbs; there was one verse that stood out among the rest, which was verse 4...and we read... "Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom." It seems as though lately, I have been taking my attention away from riches and looking to God for wisdom, as to how I can make it through the challenges of this life. I have truly come to see how it's so easy to make riches a god and once we do that; then we begin to lean on riches and depend on riches to supply our needs. One thing I can say for sure tonight; is that I have found God to be my true source of everything. His wisdom leads me down the right paths and directs me in ways that can allow me to always experience His very best for my soul.
You know...I wonder how we end up getting sidetracked in life? I guess it's because we are experiencing a moment of weakness that Satan ends up preying on, which ends up leading us away from the truth that can always keep us free from evil.
I don't know about you...but I want to be blessed by God...not riches...because whatever He blesses us with, will last forever and become embedded within the heart...something that riches alone can never accomplish. I also want to experience more of His love and wisdom because moments like these bring a permanent peace into the heart, rather than something that only lasts for a short time. You know...why not experience a true and living God...One who can truly be everything, for everything we need.
Well...I've enjoyed our time together tonight; but I have a little more work to do before I go to bed; so I better let you go for now. I hope you have a great night...and a great Tuesday too! May God truly be everything...for everything you lack in life! Take care and I hope to see you tomorrow night!
Blessings on your night!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
