It’s that feeling you get when someone knocks on your door early in the morning.
They woke you up. You’re still in bed – in your pajamas.
You can’t simply run downstairs and answer the door to greet them. Some preparation is required to make yourself presentable before you meet them. You need to comb your hair, wash your face, brush your teeth, change your clothes, etc.
Or it’s that feeling you get when you haven’t done something in awhile and find it difficult to start up again.
- writing a blog post
Maybe it’s not due to procrastination, but simply a loss in momentum.
You know that feeling?
Well, it’s fresh in my experience. I have had the intention to write a new post since the new year began. Please excuse my tardiness. Then I realized - we may feel this way before we come to God. This dawned on me when my husband shared something with me from a book by Witness Lee called The Meaning and Purpose of Prayer. Here’s a quote he shared that I found encouraging and enlightening:
Recently I’ve been participating in 21 Days of Prayer, a period of time to be devoted to prayer – not for my own spirituality, nor to be more “like Christ.” These 21 days are for me (and other members of the Body of Christ) to lay our personal interests and self-seeking aside so that God may gain the prayers He needs to advance His move and His purpose on this earth.
Regarding these 21 days, a brother gave a word during the Sunday morning meeting covering 24 points on prayer. I found them to be both practical and enlightening, so I’d like to share them with you!
Around this time of year, people sometimes wonder…
Was Jesus born on December 25?
Legitimate question. Actually, the Bible doesn’t say on what day the Lord Jesus was born.
However, the Bible does tell us that He had two “birth” days.
Romans 1:3-4 says,
“Concerning His Son who came out of the seed of David according to the flesh, Who was designated the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness out of the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Free coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts were available this morning on the Cal-State Fullerton campus. A number of people from my 8:30am class seized the opportunity to grab some, including myself. After all, who wouldn’t want free coffee and doughnuts at 8am? Or free anything at any time on a college campus? And although I’m not crazy about doughnuts – they were FREE!
Well, not quite. There’s a small price to pay to enjoy the benefit of FREE coffee and doughnuts: you have to come and get ‘em!
That’s the thought behind this refreshing new song taken from Isaiah 55:1-2 and Jeremiah 2:13.
