I’m glad in God, far happier than you would ever guess—happy that you’re again showing such strong concern for me. Not that you ever quit praying and thinking about me. You just had no chance to show it. Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. I don’t mean that your help didn’t mean a lot to me—it did. It was a beautiful thing that you came alongside me in my troubles. ❤ Philippians 4:10-14 (MSG) God is all you need! Putting that into practice is harder than you think especially in this day and age. Society and culture tell us one thing while the Bible tells us another.
Wow I can't believe we are already into February! Can I just take a few minutes and be completely honest with you all? I am finding that being real, honest, and vulnerable is the best thing to do. The past month has been a whirlwind of crazy life. I started the year off with putting Jesus first in the mornings and I have to say it was the best decision I have made. Meeting with Him before the world has really been making my days go better. One of my goals for 2018 is to get more intentional about prayer and in order to do that I started fasting on January 8th for forty days. I still have two weeks to go but it has been changing my life. When I first started to think about fasting honestly I was kinda terrified and nervous. Usually fasting is from food and I knew that would be hard for me but it wasn't what God was calling me to fast from.
Today's post is going to be something a little different than normal. I thought it would be a nice change to post a devotional I wrote last year. Music plays a big part in my life as well as studying scripture so why not combine both? That's how the idea came about for this devotional. I hope you like it. If you do be sure to leave me a comment letting me know if you'd like to see more. So without further ado let's dive into today's devo. 🙂
