When time gets away from you…

Fall PA2There will be times when we honestly don’t have time to sit down and read and study God’s Word.  Maybe the baby is sick and you are sleep-deprived from giving around-the-clock care.  There are days when our human frailty kicks in and we sleep through the alarm.  You may plan a special afternoon with the Lord and have circumstances beyond your control keep you from it.  When these kinds of things happen our thoughts begin to run away from us.  We are tired, frazzled, and frustrated.  If you are memorizing God’s Word, you will have something to meditate on throughout your day.  This will help you to think on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report. (Phil 4:8) One very special time for me with the Lord was watching my daughter at her swimming lesson.  I was working on memorizing Romans 8: 32, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”  The Lord began to teach me the meaning of that verse as I sat there meditating on it.  That was several years ago and I still have not forgotten it.

  1. How precious is the time when He is our teacher making real the words in His Word. Love the example you used here of memorizing Romans 8:32 while your daughter was having a swim lesson.
