Right Now...

Tonight I feel like doing everything BUT homework. Seems we are starting a trend here. I should be busier. I should do so many things. But the only thing that is THE most important is NOT what is due at the beginning of Greek class later on today. No, it is something far less temporal, far less materialistic, far less concerned with the tangible.

The one thing I SHOULD Be doing right now, at this very instant, is reading God's Word.

The one thing I SHOULD be doing right now is praying for all those people I said I would pray for today. It is unbelievable the amount of people who ask me to pray for them. I do, but not right when I should, and not with the amount of devotion I should.

The one thing I SHOULD be doing right now is NOT wasting time on facebook. It is all meaningless. It is all a vapour. It is not about what I want in life. It is not about what satisfies my desires and expectations. I am living only because my Lord is giving me my very breath. I live, because He died. Morever, I live because I was created with a purpose. A purpose that entails living in total surrender and abandon to Him, and to glorify the Father's Name.

And THAT, my friends, is what I am doing...

Right now.

Hi Ash ,

Well here I am ready to comment on your latest blogs.

I have already replied to most of this content in my private reply email back to you.

But I will just give a few more thoughts here just to keep my record for replies to you up to date.

Not that I think I have to, but just as an encouragement to keep you writing to us!

I think that the thoughts you presented here are something that most of us could relate to if we were to be perfectly honest!

Do we always read and study God’s Word as much as we should?

Do we spend the time in intercessory prayer for other as much as we should?

Do we tell people we will pray for them and then promptly forget what we have said we would do?

Guilty on all counts!!

We do try though to give it the best we can.

Having been on the receiving end of so many people that have prayed for us, for you and others close to us, makes me realize how important it is to follow though with what we say we will do and I think that now more than ever we know that God does here these prayers.

We are trying at out end to make more time for Him and focus on His place in our lives. Our prayer is that you too are able to follow through with your commitments to Him and it does sound like you are realizing the importance of this and that you trying to implement it into your daily life as well.

I close with this thought from Chalres Stanley..

All love NAN xoxox

1 Kings 17:1

Begin each day alone with God in His Word and in prayer, listening as He speaks to your heart.

Believe what He says in Scripture, apply it to your life, and then share with someone else what He has revealed.

Be bold and remember that the authority of your message comes from Him.
