Why do I fight it?

precious scripture.....

the priviledge of prayer.......

"Wake up!" I knew exactly what He meant.  I was to literally wake up by setting my alarm earlier than I would otherwise need to and spend time with Him before my day began and my household stirred.  I remembered what a great Bible teacher from England, Dr. Alan Redpath, once said, that what American Christians needed most was blanket victory.... victory over those blankets in the morning!"

"How many blessings, how many words of encouragement, how many answers to my questions,  how many insights into His Word, how much wisdom have I missed because I just haven't patiently persisted in my pursuit of His voice?"

Amen,to the quote by Anne Graham Lotz. "God give me victory over those annoyances that the devil and the flesh put in my way to keep me from being still and knowing that you are God." Blessed by your post. Nan

I have never heard that quote before! *Love* that!

Holy smokes, these words give me new conviction to get "up and at 'em" earlier. This summer season has seen me getting up later. Sometimes I still make time to meet with our Lord, and sometimes the day is up and running and I'm always playing catch up!

Love you to pieces, Beth! Have a wonderful weekend.
