I made the decision to start my day early – allowing extra time to begin reading Chapter 1 of my new Bible study – Stressed-Less Living. Tonight, as I review the assignment on-line, I see that I jumped the gun! I was not to begin reading Chapter 1 until tomorrow; in a way I cheated (accidentally).
First Question for today: What do you think the real problem is? As I began reading the chapter, I understood every word the author shared (as well as what Melissa’s shared on her blog post today). I have been there/done that (as they say). Not only have I done it – I learned what the real problem was (is)! And I agree completely – the real problem is ME!!!!!
The second question for today: Which of the verses from this lesson mean the most to you and how can you apply it today? I would have to say Psalm 34:17: The LORD hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles.
I can apply this perfectly in my life at this very moment. Without going into great detail, several things in my life are changing – without me having one ounce of control in the process. If I focus on the fact that HE hears me call on him – and he rescues me – then no matter what happens in life’s situations, I’ll be just fine! I can dwell IN HIM and be extremely blessed!
I am truly grateful!
