A Reminder From God

While on my way to the bank yesterday, I saw the following verse on a church sign:

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Psalm 23:1 ESV

I immediately thought “I shall not be in want of alertness as I work past my bedtime.” Yes, I have to work past my bedtime with this new schedule. Ugh!

Thank you God for the reminder that even as I adapt to changes, because of You I am and never will be in want.

And neither will you my dear friends. You will never be in want no matter what you are going through.

Weekend Wisdom: Revisiting an Old Friend

Welcome to an extra day of Weekend Wisdom.

And once again this verse describes my life –

Behold, I am doing a new thing;

    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?

I will make a way in the wilderness

    and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:19

Oh I perceive it, God, I perceive it.

New schedule, new supervisor and new teammates.

At least there are no more alarm clocks in my future.

Hallelujah!

What new things is God doing in your life?

Weekend Wisdom: Renew Your Mind

I’ve posted this before but I believe it needs posting again. It goes along with yesterday’s quote from A.W. Tozer.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Romans 12:2

The best way to renew your mind is to read the Bible, God’s Word and discern His will for your life.
