Things pondered........

Hummm....continuing on from the thought of yesterday's post, our "purpose" our "gifts". In this crazy face-paced, insane, keep-up-with-the-Jone's, high-tech, world we are apart of....we need to truly do our best to live in the world and not by the world. Scripture actually says in Romans 12:2 "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will." In that search for purpose and gifts we would be well advised to slow down. I recently read an invididual's very intersting daily activity for a daily walk with God, not only does this individual have a prayer time, but also an "answering" time...it is called the "answering place". When this individual has daily prayer, time and space is also set aside to be still & quite to listen for answers....the "answering place". We get so caught up in the world, we too often zip past God's plans for us, never slowing down enough to ponder what God has planned for us.

  1. What a wonderful idea - we don't listen enough especially to Him.
