BlogFam, On tomorrow there will be 14 days left in the year 2011 and I can honestly say, of this year, I HAVE COME THIS FAR BY FAITH! Now, you might be thinking, well, that is how we make it through every year and I agree with that. However, I feel like this year has required that my faith stand strong in ways that have totally reinforced my dependency on the Lord.
I keep a prayer journal and I have been doing so consistently for at least ten years. So, what I write on SALVATION & STILETTOS is in addition to what I am writing in my prayer journal. Yes, I am sure that from time to time - as in my following words - there will be some crossover but my prayer journal is my prayer journal and my blog is my blog and there is NO intent that they be the same.
ANYWAY, as we come to the close of this year, ONE major lesson that has transformed my conversations and the amount of attention that I give to people, is a lesson regarding my dependency on the Almighty through prayer. Just this morning, I did write in my journal that I AM SO CLEAR that NOBODY should get more attention or have more conversation with me MORE than the Lord. I know that this may seem like a no brainer to some of you but I challenge you for at least 24 hours to talk to the Lord MORE than you talk to anybody else in your life. For the last month or so, I have been intentionally limiting my conversation with certain people and because I have focused my attention on hearing what the Lord is speaking to me, I have also found that the CLARITY I walk in helps me to walk in a knowing, trusting that God has ordered everything in my life - including every conversation I am supposed to have. NOBODY on this earth deserves MORE attention or appreciation or adoration than our Lord.
So I CHALLENGE YOU for the next 24 hours to make God your primary and majority conversation partner. I will tell you now that those who do not understand do not deserve an explanation because they will not get it and you will begin to see where their heart is so you do not need to take the energy to explain or defend. JUST DO IT! I would love to hear about it - so leave a comment :-)
Lastly, I just wanted to say that I AM SO EXCITED about ALL that the Lord has in store in this new year!!! Are you EXCITED? Are you EXPECTING GREAT things? I hope that you are! And I am looking forward to how things will unfold in my inspirational writing through this blog so PLEASE keep coming back AND share it with somebody else! Well, until next time.....
God Loves You and I Do Too!
