Sitting Still.

So, my dear sweet friend threw out a challenge to listen yesterday. And to be intentional about it. So today we were supposed to tell what we learned or heard in the queitness.
Well, since I’m working now at W.M., it looked a bit different for me. I didn’t have TV or music, but phones ringing and people talking, ect. Although, it was amazingly ‘quiet’ yesterday for a Tuesday. I was able to sit at my desk for periods of time and found myself staring off into my screen. The Lord would bring to mind something and I would pray. Thoughts would come into my mind and immediately I recognized them for what they were, and renounced them. I thought on what is above…
I also thought that as I sat there, how many people that I work in close contact with know I’m a Christian, held to a higher standard?
I love the saying I heard when I was in jr. high:
You may be the only Bible some people read.
So my listening looked and sounded a bit different. And then got home and did Haven’s devotional and she got to write out the verse as a reminder that our eyes should be on the Lord and not other people/things.
It was: My eyes are ever fixed on the Lord.
Hmmmmm.
Jesus, thank You for dear friends who challenge me. Thank you that even though I don’t sit and listen as I should or stop to truly be still, that there are ways you speak…people you bring, visions and dreams. I pray that You would give me that vision tonight of what it is You want me to know.
We fix our eyes on You, the author and perfecter of our faith.
K.
