Be Reminded of God’s Promises
|October 14, 2011||Posted by carmen under Spiritual Food|
I have a new favorite blog. It’s called 365 Promises and you can find it here.
I am so excited about this because, as I shared a couple weeks ago in a post called Nourish Your Spirit, I’m hungry for more spiritual food. Like many moms, my time in the Word of God sometimes gets put aside as I tend to my seemingly never-ending “to-do’s” and to all the little people I call my own. Unless I wake up in the wee hours of the morning before anyone in the house is awake, I find it hard to get my spiritual food for the day.
Oftentimes I am great about waking up early and when I do I love the feeling of peace and refreshment that I start my day with having gotten to spend time in prayer and studying the Scriptures without interruption. But sometimes it just doesn’t happen and I struggle to find time during the day to be able to read when my brain isn’t too frazzled to comprehend the words on the page.
I adore the simplicity of 365 Promises…it’s a total match made in heaven for me. I see it as a sort of “spiritual snack” to meditate on during those times when I haven’t managed to get my “spiritual meal” and am hungering for at least something to hold me over.
Every day is a new promise taken straight from the Word of God, personalized for emphasis. Each day’s promise is followed by a mini-devotional that short but rich. It has been such a blessing to me to be reminded of God’s promises each and every day; so much so that I just had to share with you all. I hope it’s a blessing to you as well.
