~New Devotional Blog!~

Hello all! Hope this post finds you well! :) This morning we were BLESSED to receive some MUCH needed rain! The cooler air that came with the rain, was such a relief after weeks of intense heat! The same is true in our spiritual lives! When the ground of our hearts and lives become dry and parched with the heat of things that go on in our every day life it can be SO refreshing to be washed by the water of the word and to let it cleanse us and to "settle the dust" and cause spiritual growth in our lives! Just as plants can become withered and dry up without rain, we too can become weary and grow faint if we become negligent in watering our souls with God's life giving word! With that being said, I am excited to introduce to you my new devotional blog...Striving To Fall More in Love With Jesus! This blog is not intended to be separate from my original blog for "more spiritual posts", but rather to organize the posts, where we can possibly have book studies, encouraging songs and more! My vision for this blog is that it would have the same kind of atmosphere as a specific room or place in one's home, set aside for quiet times with the Lord, or perhaps gathering for a group Bible study. A place where one would purpose to remove distractions, to be able to really focus on Christ and press in and seek Him with our whole hearts! This blog is certainly not intended to be a replacement for one's quiet time with the Lord, but to simply be a place where we can draw strength and encouragement with others by sharing insights and encouragement the Lord has shared with us as we continue to seek Christ and grow in Him! My desire in all my blogging (as well as in every area of my life) is that Christ would be lifted up!
So please feel free to stop by for a visit! (My most recent post is about some encouraging books I've enjoyed reading over the summer!) I pray it is a blessing to you! :)

Love in Christ!

"Listen, O heavens, and I will speak;

hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.

Let my teaching fall like rain

and my words descend like dew,

like showers on new grass,

like abundant rain on tender plants.

I will proclaim the name of the LORD.

Oh, praise the greatness of our God!

He is the Rock, his works are perfect,

and all his ways are just.

A faithful God who does no wrong,

upright and just is he."

~Deuteronomy 32:1-4~
