01 Jan Turn the page
Wayne and I always pray and ask God what He wants us to focus on in the new year. This year, I got a picture of a really big book and heard the word of the Lord, “forget the past, turn the page and keep Me at the center every day. Leave wide margins in your day. Be careful how you fill in the margins. There is room for whatever you want to do but there is no need to fill it up. Remember, rest is a weapon.”
This simple picture was drawn by Wayne as a reminder to remember this precious word in 2021.
I then went on to read Proverbs 3:3-4 which states, “Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart so you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.” ESV
I love to look at other versions of scripture so I went to the Passion Translation as well and it reads, “Hold onto loyal love and don’t let go; and be faithful in all that you’ve been taught. Let your life be shaped by integrity with truth written upon your heart. That’s how you will find favor and understanding with both God and man – you will gain the reputation of living life well.”
I believe God wants us to seek Him every day and be focused on His plans and not ours. It’s very hard to know and understand God’s ways if we are too busy. It’s OK to rest.
