Be still...
Stop worrying. Calm down. Don't be afraid. Stop trying to figure it out by yourself. Stop trying to make things happen. Slow down. Take a deep breath. Forget the money crunch. Take time out from the pressures at work. Stop striving. Stop talking... and listen. He has the answers.

Oh Lord, strengthen me to do right by others. Teach me to forgive, especially myself. Show me my character defects and help me to remove them, so I may be more like Chirst. I am blind, I am weak, but I am strong in my faith and love for you.

I have to take 2 meds each evening, but because one has to be taken w/ food they have to be taken an hour apart. What a blessing that hour has become!! I turn off all media and spend time with the Lord; sometimes in prayer, sometimes in worship, sometimes in the Word, and my favorite, sometimes just sitting expecting to hear from the Father. Don't you love the way He turns ALL things to good, even something as banal as daily meds? I don't think I could get through a day without that hour, and I know I'll keep the practice up even after the meds are no longer needed.

Starting over, with correct focus, God, family, health, work, school, there's just so much, sometimes it's hard to find time to even Breathe... Renewed and starting over. Thank you Lord.

well said, I often wonder why I would need reminders also. Weight loss is such a consent struggle, I really don't like having to focus on what I am going to eat all the time. I will be glad when I get to goal so I can hopefully quit focusing on food.

what is it Paul said? .... "i do the things i don't want to do and don't do the things i do want to do"? on the days I am *too busy*? to spend time in prayer or reading the Word or worshipping God I go to bed that night and ask myself "Really? You're kidding right?"

this thread is a good reminder but it leaves me wondering why i should need a reminder. Is it possible that i feel so safe in the relationship that i think there's no harm in slacking on the fellowship?

with God's help, turning that around today!

PS ... I think this thread is in the wrong Forum .... "Fun & Games"?

together we can help eachother focus on God more for our needs, I do believe it helps to have a support team. As when they quit the 8 week coarse it was easy to fall back into the old habits after awhile. Lets help eachother, I bought a new devotional at Dollar General yesterday and am making a comitment to God to read it each day. (it's not like I don't have several good Bibles and devotionals already) I just thought a new book might help me.
Have a geat day! praise the Lord in everything we do for HE is great!!! gramkris

There I times I strongly "feel" something which I know I need. I am not always capable ob verbalizing exactily what it is. You have summarized so well for me what I know, but haven't been able to consciously express so concisely. I am grateful for the help in recognizing the insight.

I think it is a wonderful commitment and I would certainly join in this commitment. I recognize that God is the one who has given me the strength to go as far as I have and I recognize that I have not blessed His Holy name as much as I should. I pray He gives me His grace to see His hands in my life.

He is and I don't know why I keep forgetting without focusing on him I am never going to take the #'s off and keep them off, starting today that is my committment to God that I will read my bible journal that I made for weight loss, We all need reminders once in awhile. Will really have to focus with the graduation parties coming up. Have a great day! Rain here, what else is new. Someday it will quit and we will be able to plant our beans. Kris

The poem says it all, I know I need reminders to thank God for all the things he does for me and all the blessings he has given me and not think of the negative things in life. Thanks for the reminders, I don't always take time for God, I used to more when I was younger and it does seem that things are tougher in life when we forget the Lord daily. Thanks and blessings to everyone.

Great suggestion. When I am tempted to skip my time with God because I feel pressed for time, I remind myself that He created time and He controls time. When I take time for God, He makes time work for me.

I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.

So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.

All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer.
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They'd laugh at me I'd fear.

No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.

I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God held a book;
It was the book of life.

God looked into his book and said
"Your name I cannot find.
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time"



"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Cor 5:17
