Quiet Time Thoughts

*Refusing to act leaves a person paralyzed, exactly where they were previously. But once they act, they are never the same. 
*Once I press myself into action, I immediately begin to live. Anything less is merely existing. 

I can't seem to get away from these truths. My wonderful James has been gone for two years (November 10, 2014). It's been an emotional roller coaster for me. I continue to miss him more rather than less. 

BUT GOD... But God has taught me so much and I realize that through this journey I have become stronger in my relationship with Jesus Christ. I have learned that obedience is a blessing even when I am sure I cannot go on. 

At first I refused to act on God's word, and yes, I was paralyzed, staying exactly where I had been previously. BUT, when I obeyed God, my life changed. I learned to "press" myself into action (minister in the ordinary moments of everyday life). Looking back I see how I was merely existing....(not a good place for me to be). 

But again, God has a plan for my life (and yours) and I shall continue to follow Him in obedience the very best that I can.... 

 The Lord bless you and keep you; 
the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 
 the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26
