I’m overwhelmed after yesterday…

IN MY LIFE:
I don’t ever speak to get a response from y’all; in fact, I honestly still can’t believe anyone listens to my Daily Dash. But your response to me sharing my soul with you yesterday overwhelmed me.

I never want to paint an unrealistic picture of my life (social media already skews that way), but I also strive to stay positive even in the midst of dark circumstances. I heard each and every one of you who said “me too” or that you share similar feelings and I appreciate it more than words can express.

Speaking of words, “My Utmost for His Highest” spoke to me right where I needed it today (as it always does). I’m not going to write everything I read in the video, but this is what really got me this morning:
“Once, the Bible was just so many words to us – “clouds and darkness” – then, suddenly, the words become spirit and life because Jesus re-speaks them to us when our circumstances make the words new…that is the way God speaks to us.”

So if you find yourself in the midst of clouds and darkness, just remember you’re not alone and God has a unique word for you…you just have to open your eyes to read it and your heart to hear it!

{You already know I read My Utmost for His Highest every day and share a quote from it on Twitter each morning, but if you want a copy for yourself, you can find it on Amazon here (affiliate link): https://amzn.to/2R6wr37. That is the “updated language” version, but you can also find the classic language and many other editions – just recognize that my Glad Press N Seal cover is an original ? )

PRAYER FOCUS: Attentive
May each of you be attentive to the words God wants to share with you today!
