Women in the Word Wednesday - Busy-ness vs. Blessings


I am really happy to say that I have been getting my Word in. And as I write that - I realize that it sounds like I'm "making time" or "fitting some religion in" - and that isn't the case. I've been reexamining my priorities (my 'mission' for October) and I realize that making my relationship with God my life's foundation gives me the ability to see blessings amidst all of my busy-ness.

I'm not able to change much of what's going on in my life right now, but I AM able to change the way I view those things.

My one-hour drive to work has been spent listening to Christian radio or Joyce Meyer CDs. I signed up to read the Gospels in 30-days at YouVersion and joined a Good Morning Girls group with other working moms for accountability.

Through a friend on FaceBook I was introduced to Air1 radio online - a really uplifting Christian station with a lot of my favorite songs. Great to listen to while blogging or cleaning house!

So I'm probably doing this all wrong - but I'm really excited and happy about returning to the path that leads to God. I veered off of it for awhile - but I realize that nothing I did made me happy, oh - maybe momentarily, but I never felt JOY like I do when I feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life!

Here's a passage I read last night - and the power of the scripture speaks for itself. You just have to read it, feel it deeply, and have a real "WOW" moment!

John 1:1 - 1:5

1 In the beginning the Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 He existed in the beginning with God.
3 God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.
4 The Word gave life to everything that was created,s
and his life brought light to everyone.
5 The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it.

So I'm just dipping my big toe into the Word - but I pray that I gain wisdom and understanding over the months and years go come.

Blessings to all you 'girls'!
