I am Life and Light in abundance. As you spend time “soaking” in My Presence, you are energized and lightened. Through communing with Me, you transfer your heavy burdens to My strong shoulders. By gazing at Me, you gain My perspective on your life. This time alone with Me is essential for unscrambling your thoughts and smoothing out the day before you. Be willing to fight for this precious time with Me. Opposition comes in many forms: your own desire to linger in bed; the evil one’s determination to distract you from Me; the pressure of family, friends, and your own inner critic to spend your time more productively. As you grow in your desire to please Me above all else, you gain strength to resist these opponents. Delight yourself in Me, for I am the deepest Desire of your heart.
Psalm 48:9; Deuteronomy 33:12; Psalm 37:4
With the wedding coming up in just 22 days I’m feeling the oppositions. Tons of things are on my mind and keep distracting me from my devotions with my heavenly Father. I really need to remember that the most important thing about this wedding is that we will be making a lifelong commitment to living our lives for Christ. Everything else is not important. I really can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with Lucas and to see how God will use us in His kingdom here on earth.
