First, let me say I’m sorry for missing a couple of Scripture Saturdays recently! As most of you know, I had a baby 6 weeks ago, and it’s been harder to get back to writing than I had imagined.
Before she was born, I thought I’d be able to write with a sleeping baby next to me. (I know, I was seriously naïve!). Instead (as you may know from experience), I was so sleep deprived I could hardly see straight, much less write! 🙂
Also, I’ve struggled some in my Bible reading and prayer life over these last few weeks. Some days, all I could manage was a “Lord, we need you!” But, now that my daughter has slept a consecutive 3-5 hours for the last few nights, I’ve started to come out of the fog and realized how desperately I need to get back in the Word and back to regular communication with God.
So thank you for your grace during this time of blessing and transition, and I hope you’ll join me for this Scripture Saturday!
It’s hard to find time in our busy schedules to spend time with the Lord, but it is so very crucial to our spiritual well-being that we make this time. My challenge to you (and to myself) is to come together each Saturday morning and study a verse from the Bible. Let’s talk about what it means to us and how we can apply it in our daily lives. So look for a new verse every Saturday morning, grab a cup of coffee and your prayer journal, and let’s grow together in the Lord!
Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to my people? Who will go for us?” And I said, “Lord, I’ll go! Send me” (Isaiah 6:8).
