Our SONday School teacher asks some questions each week that really make us stop and think about our lives and our walk with the Lord. This past week, he asked what was something that just amazed us about the Lord....and my answer was how He speaks to each of us on a personal level. That never ceases to amaze me, even though I know it shouldn't 'cause He's a personal God. I love how I can talk to Him about anything and everything.
Sometimes, though....He can really speak to us about things that we might rather not have to deal with!!!
I've been feeling very convicted about overeating....and not exercising. One night last week, I didn't sleep much at all and it seemed each time I woke up, I had on my mind how I hadn't been taking very good care of this body He gave me!!!
I shared this with some of my friends on Facebook....but here's what He did!!!
I decided this past SONday night that I would get up and walk Monday morning. I laid my "walking clothes" out....got my shoes and socks and all my stuff and put it in a stack together. Got up early Monday morning and got dressed....and still wasn't feeling motivated, so I sat down and read out of my Journey devotional. Well....the title of the devotional for Monday, July 16, 2012 first caught my eye....
...."Step by Step".
I figured that God was giving me a little nudge....but, then, as I got into the "meat of the message" it was about a lady going thru a rough time with her family so she called her friend, "Debra" (spelled exactly like mine, by the way)....to go for a "walk" with her!!!
I do believe our precious Lord has a sense of humor!!!
Did I walk?
Oh, yes....I was afraid that it might be more than a nudge the next time!!!
Happy Tuesday, Sweet Reader!!!
In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
