Hello dear Sister, and welcome to the fifth posting of our 2023 Dressed for My Day Scripture Meditation & Memory Challenge. I am so glad that you have met me here today.
Yesterday I listened to a biblical meditation as I walked and I was reminded that, indeed, we reap what we sow. You and I are sowing truth into our hearts and minds, and my prayer is that we will reap a harvest of wise decisions, gracious words and acts of obedience because of what we are doing here and in the privacy of our quiet times with God.
I’m enjoying a much needed full weekend of rest, so I am not going to be long here. But, as always, I want to encourage you to press on. Spend adequate time each day with each of the verses that you have accumulated in your meditation albums. Chew on each phrase, mulling over the fresh manna that each verse provides for your day. I trust that God is indeed feeding your soul as you take the time to feast on His Word each day.
My Fifth Scripture Passage
I’ve chosen a familiar passage again, but one that I simply felt drawn to afresh.
I am reminded that initial the word “priority” did not even have a plural form. There was no such thing as “priorities.” You would only have one priority. And truly, don’t we all, in any given moment, focus on only one thing? We may say we have priorities, plural. But we can only devote ourselves fully to one thing at a time. And that priority must be to seek the Lord.
As I go about that priority of seeking His face, He illumines my path and sets my agenda and empowers me for the other things in my day. But all day long I want to seek Him in everything I do.
And now I look forward to reading in the comments your selections for the next two weeks. What will you add to your album, meditate on and put to memory over the course of time?
