The Written Blog

There are so few pages left in the book, compared to what is behind. Almost every page has marks from my yellow highlighter-and pencil scratched words. From my purple pencil.

The thing is, I don’t think I’ve ever come this close to completing a years worth of devotions. I’d start so many years off with good intentions…and then, some where along the way, I’d become distracted by life, or find yet another devotional that piqued my interest spiritually and on that train I would hop.

This year has been yearly devotionaldifferent. When I was looking back at the past blog posts, I realized I had not been writing devotionals for my readers as I had in months past. Where have I been? In my book.

I have spent mornings “writing out” prayers and devotionals on the lined pages of my Oswald Chambers devotional, “My Utmost for His Highest”. I’ve turned on my computer less and less and dug into the book more. The Lord has shown me things in my life almost every day. Because I ask. And I’ve been looking at things in a different light. Because I asked.

I suppose you would think after what we’ve been through as a family, all I might see would be shadows, and I’ll admit quite readily, there are those days. But there are more days when I catch myself looking toward the Light.

When the year is done, and the curtain falls into place to close out this season, the book will go on the shelf in our office.the devotional The lessons learned by heart from the Holy Spirit will remain in my heart. The highlighted words and penciled words will stand as a testimony of what spoke loudest to me. Names are written in the margin at the bottom and sides of who I’ve prayed for. You might be pleased to know, your name is there.

There is a book however, that you need to make certain your name is listed. The Lamb’s Book of Life. (Rev. 21:27)

Believing in God’s only Son is the Way. He is the Way, the Truth and the LIFE. (John 14:6) Without Him, there is no life. Oh, you may be living, but you don’t have Life. I cannot imagine breathing without Christ by my side. Without the knowledge that He will never leave me nor forsake me! (Hebrews 13:5)

In a capsule, I’ve not left blog land, nor have I stopped writing devotions. They are scratched out in pencil. My purple pencil. In my devotional book. They will make their way to the screen, as I prayerfully ask the LORD to show me “what’s next” on His agenda, I hope you will be along for the ride!

I’ve seen some mighty awesome things and I really want to share them with you! What is He showing you?

Are you looking for Him? Are you listening?

I have learned that when I THINK I’ve got the answer….He shows UP and shows me I’m wrong…

There’s my answer….and then there’s the RIGHT answer. His.

    “I have learned that when I THINK I’ve got the answer….He shows UP and shows me I’m wrong…” I can so relate to that.

    I loved that devotional too.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and for signing my guestbook. Looking forward to getting to know you.

    Rich blessings!

    I enjoyed todays post very much… I used to love to read Oswald Chambers devotional, “My Utmost for His Highest”. I must dig it out again..

  • eph2810

    Amen to that, Angie. You know, I have been changing my mornings around (or has He?) I think so…Although I have days where I am utterly discouraged, but I know that I just have to look only forward — leave the past behind…I have been 'digging' into 2 Corinthians…especially chapter 4…the 'secret' is that we are only vessels in His hands – He does the rest. That for some reason give me great comfort on the days I am discouraged…

    Let us run the race together, my dear friend. The reward is great 🙂

    Love you…

    Thinking of you tonight and smiling as I read along. Hope your weekend is blessed! Looking forward to hearing what He's speaking to your heart,Angie. For all the prayers you've prayed for me, I thank you, btw. hugs & blessings, V.

    My precious sister, your words touched my core all the more. You've said a mouth full of some good stuff.

    I have been searching for a devotion for next year that is lined where I could write and express as I've used Utmost for His Highest twice over the years and it's blessed me. Unsure what GOD has planned for 2010. This year I've been using Smith Wigglesworth and I've been deeply blessed in it.

    I love you and pray for you and am so grateful for every prayer you lift for me.

    After our RETREAT in just a few weeks we've go to do a one on one with JESUS sister retreat my direction next year 🙂

    Love you girl!

    Hi Angie, My favorite devotional…mine is falling apart. My mom or sister gave it to me when I first was found by Jesus.

    I am back to blogging, well reading at least. I have been void of words for some reason since the wedding. I shut off alot of things to focus on the wedding. It was a rewarding time, and I believe God was glorified in it, but getting back to normal has been challenging.

    Anyway, love to you, I wanted to stop by and say “hi”!
