Video Update

Thanks to all of you who left comments regarding the time you visit here. That has been so helpful.

In saying that, I really feel the Lord asking me to step back and seek His will in regards to transcribing these videos every Monday to Friday. I may have rushed ahead of His plan here and I need some time to seek His will. This week I will be posting the video transcriptions later in the day to allow for my quiet time in the morning. Since taking this on my personal prayer time has suffered and I need to return to the Lord. In the past two weeks I have already felt the affect on my life of my missed time in His presence. Maybe implementing this simple change in the time I do this will be all that is required. Thank you so much for your understanding.

This morning my devotional began...in capital letters: "INSTEAD OF RUSHING TO PURSUE A GOAL, TAKE TIME TO TALK WITH ME ABOUT IT." I'm ashamed to say I feel like I did rush ahead of the Lord and He is calling me to step back and listen to His heartbeat in this regard. I have a tremendous need to be needed and I hate...positively hate letting anyone down. I am praying that should the Lord direct me to withdraw from this endeavour at the close of this week, that He is already raising up the next lady who will carry this on with excellence. My obedience in letting this go, should the Lord direct that way, will open the way for the one of His chosing to take over.

Desiring to be a Christ-FOLLOWER!

Follow that prompting, Joy. See what God has to say in the matter, and then obey. Nothing, and I mean nothing (even well-meaning and good plans) is worth losing or even postponing your own journey with Jesus.

If God is calling you to lay this one day, do it, and then be free in doing so.

Love you. Mean it.

Ditto, ditto-I can’t say it any better than Elaine! Trust & obey for there’s no other way. Saying, “no,” can be liberating and sometimes this is just what God is asking of us. When we say, “no,” we are actually saying, “yes,” to God. And, that my sweet sister is when he pours his sweet blessings all over us! Step by step, we must follow him.
Love you! Hugs, Lori

Joy, the most important thing you can do for the Lord is spend time in His Word and in prayer. Follow His leading and He will provide someone to do this for us.
