I didn’t have to ask twice. She had patiently waited for me to finish my quiet time and she was ready to play, ready to have all my attention.
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. How many times do we realize something, whether it is something we need to change or start practicing, something that we can apply to make this journey of life a bit more rewarding, and still we resort to our old ways? Today’s blog is meant to encourage you to pay attention to those revelations that are meant to not only open our eyes but make what we see so much more meaningful
As I threw the ball and waited for my little four-legged fur baby Aniesi to bring it back to me, I realized if I would just do this with her first thing after my quiet time, the day just seems to go better. Besides, as my sister reminded me a while ago, I’m all she has. I need to be sure she feels loved.
That took me a bit deeper. I know that I have a need to feel loved and I truly have come to know that I am loved by my Heavenly Father. I know He’s beside me, ahead of me, behind me and I’ve experienced Him in so many details of my life. I am learning to see my season of betrayal recovery thru His eyes, and not see Him through the eyes of my pain and sorry.
But – and this is a big one 😊 -- I can’t know (to know translates to Hebrew word yada, which means to experience with your inner being) that without putting Him first, first thing in the morning.
When I sit still first thing in the morning and connect with Him, whether through worship music, journaling, reading His Word, I experience with my inner being so many times throughout my day this sense of contentment, even amid crazy chaos and yes, even in the sorrow.
Can I encourage you today to try connecting first with He who longs to be first in your life? You’ll be amazed at the results.
