Thirsty? Take a Drink

O God, You are my God;  I shall seek you earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Psalm 63:1

I Will Seek You

Are you thirsty? If we call ourselves Christ followers, and claim to love Him and we have placed complete faith and trust in Him, then, at some point, we must wrestle. We must in our journey of faith come to a place where we ask ourselves, "Do I hunger and thirst for God? Do I have a desire to get to know Him better through His Word?"

Increasing your thirst. Maybe we have that thirsty feeling spiritually and quite possibly we are struggling with not feeling spiritually thirsty at all. It matters not what we feel at this moment but rather what we choose to do with the moment we have been given. A valuable resource for those of us who are continually and constantly "plugged in" is BibleGateway.com. Let's take a look at Galatians 5. The link provided here will direct you to the New American Standard Version, however, BibleGateway.com has many translations from which to choose and you can pick the translation you would like in the box labeled "search." (Hint: We'll be doing some different things with Galatians 5 in upcoming posts!)

Quenching your thirst. As you spend time in Galatians 5 today and throughout the week (or any passage of Scripture), eventually there will be a thirst that has been quenched that you may not have even been aware was present in your life. BibleGateway.com is a wonderful tool to use to help us stay in the Word throughout the day whether we're having lunch in the office and sitting at our desk staring at our laptops or using our iPads, or whether we're traveling (BibleGateway App) we can have easy access to the Scripture!

Obedience to God 
Increases our thirst for God 
That is always quenched by God!

What Does Your "Busyometer" Read?

"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.Acts 2:42 (KJV)Life can get very busy and the speed at which we function can quickly accelerate to one where we feel we have completely lost control.  We need to slam on the brakes!  How do we stop the proverbial hamster wheel and come up for air?

Recognize the Posted Speed Limit. We must recognize the speed to which we have been called.  And yes, there are times in our lives when the speed seems incredibly fast and we cannot slow down; the truth is, some seasons in life are like that.  However, there are other times in our lives when we must eliminate those activities that were not put upon us by God, but rather our own doing for myriad reasons.



Adjust Your Speed. Once we realize who we are and what God is calling us to do, we are then required to adjust our speed.  Look at what the multitudes did upon hearing Peter speak: 1) they gave their lives to Christ…

Tired of the TO DO Lists?

The Great Grind: If you're anything like me, your life is filled to overflowing with the necessities and then some!  I'm sure you have a life filled with the daily grind of shopping, cooking, cleaning, working, going to the Doctor, going to the bank, running to the pharmacy, taking care of the sick pet, thinking of meals for the upcoming week, taking care of the children, and if you home school your children - lesson planning, grading, teaching, gathering material and then there's paying the bills, cutting coupons to save money, and oh yes, the beloved laundry!  And the defining moment when you realize you do not have any clean underwear for the next morning...ugh.
