(I have a firm belief in truthful blog titles.)
While waiting for my birthday pictures to download correctly - which has been over 24hours and counting... I decided to post a couple of inspirational quotes from a devotional I read about every other year. This is my "off year" from it, (btw, Lea, those "quote marks" are for "you", "dear friend"), and I find myself reading back over certain highlighted sections even when I don't HAVE to. HAVE TO, as in the devotional police would come get me if I didn't read the correct material on the correct day for the correct amount of time.
The quotes are from My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers.
"If we will do the duty that lies nearest, we shall see Him."
Profundity in few words. I should make that my blog line....'cept my laptop would probably be hit by lightening.
Again from Chambers-
"Immediately you obey, a flash of light comes. Let God's truth work in you by soaking it in, not by worrying into it. Obey God in the thing he shows you, and instantly the next thing He shows you, and instantly the next thing is opened up.
You may say, 'I suppose I shall understand these things some day!' You can understand them now. It is not study that does it, but obedience. The tiniest fragment of obedience , and heaven opens and the profoundest truths of God are yours straight away. God will never reveal more truth about Himself until you have obeyed what you already know."
Plenty to think about while you wait for the pictures of my birthday meal and presents. Wait till you see what I got four of! From four different people, no less.
(Hint: Think yarn.)
