Hey there. Christmas is in 7 days!! ONE WEEK awesome people and we get to celebrate the birth of our Savior! I had a different plan to continue my Instagram story about 'Life Being like a Camera'but I felt like someone needed to hear what is on my heart tonight. So whoever needs to hear this I pray you are encouraged and that God speaks to you tonight.
God sees you. He loves you. He is available to you. He knows the desire of your heart. He hasn't abandoned you. He hears you. He can and will do the impossible. He is worthy of your trust. He knows the hurt and scars you have experienced. He walks with you. He can do it again. He is your protector. He is your healer. He pursues you. He is your every present help in time of trouble. He forgives you. He restores.
The last few weeks I have heard God speak to my heart about the importance of being in His Word, and seeking him for yourself rather than for what I hear from others. In Jeremiah 33:3 it says, "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know". Another verse I have seen a lot over the last three weeks is Jeremiah 29:13 "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Something I really struggle with is consistency. Staying consistent in God's word is really hard for me and most people. Getting up earlier than 6 is really hard on my body, and someday's I need the extra sleep. No I am not making excuses.
So this next week I am choosing to cut out 30 minutes in my everyday activities to intentionally spend time in God's word. I challenge you to do the same. No excuses! No distractions. Cell phone away! Just me, my Bible, Jesus, and a journal. You choose the time. Maybe you decide to get up 30 minutes earlier, or use your lunch break to read your Bible, or you choose to do it in the evening after school. Whenever you choose to do it put away all distractions!
Will you join me? Message me using the 'Contact Me' tab here on the blog or send me a direct message on Instagram @simplylovingjesus and tell me when you are making time to spend with God. Also tell me where we are going to start reading the Bible. Then everyday tag me after you have read and tell me what you learned. Here we go! Let's begin to seek him and listen to His heart through his word.
Thanks for being here!
