I love reading Christian fiction that reminds readers to pray, read the Bible, and also to wait for His still, small voice. Reading Promises to Keep by T. Davis Bunn, published by Bethany Publishing House, and copyrighted in 1991, it reminded me that I could run myself ragged and be far from following God’s will.
After reading the Bible today, I spent a little time in prayer. After I had breakfast and did the dishes, I decided to work on the Dragon Speak software program from Nuance, Company. I’m on a learning curve, but it’s getting better. My husband is watching a movie called, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken. I think I’ll join him.
In the Old Testament, it says, “The joy of the Lord is my strength,” in Nehemiah 8:10 in the last part of the verse, (KJV).
Don Knotts always makes me laugh. His movies may have a little bit of worldliness in them. This one had a group of women interested in the occult in it, which I forgot about. So, I laughed at his funny faces and enjoyed his courage in the face of danger. But, I was glad to get back to the blog and search the Scriptures for words of importance. God’s joy fulfills, whereas anytime I found enjoyment in shopping, or eating, or sports, or friends, or accomplishments, etc., the good feelings slipped away. Then, I’d go look for something else to do or someone else to talk to.
I’ve told my kids that only God really satisfies. That’s been true for as long as I’ve had the privilege of following Him.
May God bless you.
