God knows what I need. The Bible and Art Club starts up tomorrow! For various reasons, I hadn’t gotten to writing up my first lesson. God has placed the book of Matthew on my heart to teach this year. We’ll be studying Matthew 1:1-17 tomorrow. I knew that I’d have to make due with whatever time Eliana napped today as my study time. She went down around 12 and still isn’t up! Glorious again!!! I was able to make a calendar for the year, do some research on why it is important that Jesus came from both Abraham (Gen. 12:13) and David (Psalm 89:4), and really get ready for tomorrow’s lesson. God knew I needed some stretched time. I’d prayed about it this morning, and he has allowed Eliana to take one of those rare naps that is nice and long.
God knows what I need. I was checking email which is a rare thing now that Kyle is home recovering from surgery, and Eliana takes such short naps, when a friend encouraged me to go take 5 minutes with God. These 5 minutes were to be just me and God. No Bible, journal, electronic, notecard, or anything else. Just me and God. Awe, it was so good to sit on the floor and pray. I had to sit on the floor and initially close my eyes, because I would probably get distracted if I were other places. I’d notice the laundry, or dishes, or other to do things. Once I was really focused, I opened my eyes and prayed while looking outside. God knew I needed to be still and pray.
Is there a time you reflected and realized God knew what you needed?
As I am finishing up, Eliana is beginning to stir. He knew how long I’d need to write this post. He knows everything!
