|Thought you would enjoy that!|
As I'm sitting here preparing for my reading and becoming one with Him, I felt a restlessness that I know all too well. But as I continued to praise Him and let Him take over, I felt a calm that only He can give me. It reminded me of how I used to wrap my kids. Back then I called it 'like a burrito', LOL. Recently I realized I was swaddling. Maybe I need to pray "Swaddle me Lord!!!" throughout the day". Never thought of that. It's an awesome feeling when you're wrestling in prayer, trying to get past the flesh that wants to remind you that you... 'Didn't finish the dishes', 'Need to call this person', 'Isn't your show on?', 'What's that noise outside?', 'You didn't realize it but you have a pain in your body', 'You didn't worship enough', 'You didn't praise enough', YADA, YADA, YADA, YADA...and then...
His peace takes over and it's like a judge banging a gavel! Order in Karla's temple!! Order!! LOL It's awesome!!! I want to have more of that. I usually pray here and there throughout the day but I want to make sure that there's a solid block of time that I'm really just concentrating on Him. I want to tithe my time in prayer also. Not driving, not cleaning, etc...Just me and Him. This blog is helping me do that:)

The following is for my own accountability. Those of you who wish to join me feel free. You can never get enough spiritual food...ENJOY!!! This is the first year I'm reading the Word cover to cover. If I can read a 500 page novel in a week, surely I can read my 2200 pg bible in 52 weeks!! Daily reading schedule example:
1st of the month read:
~*Proverbs and Psalms read ENTIRELY by the end of each month*~
My yearly schedule is based on WWW.BibleGateWay.com
Before I begin my study I make sure my heart is right with prayer and worship.
I ask Him to give me Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge and Discernment.
If He leads me somewhere else before I actually study...so be it...I want more of HIM

Proverbs 5.2 'That you may regard discretion, and that your lips may keep knowledge.' ***My study portion says: Wisdom and understanding are distinct, one from the other. Understanding is the discrimination which recognizes Wisdom. A child, not having understanding, cannot discriminate between a glass ball and a diamond.
|Diamond color is a primary quality factor along with the other 4Cs of Diamond Clarity, Diamond Carat Weight, and Diamond Cut.|
So, to discern between the gaudy glass of folly...
and the simple beauty of wisdom...
*~*~***Understanding Is Everything***~*~*
|I pray that my first instinct is always to pray |
no matter what
|Plead my cause, O LORD, with them who strive with Me: |
fight against them who fight against Me
|I pray for prosperity for the body of Christ physically, financially and spiritually.|
|O Thou Who hears prayer, unto You shall all flesh come, Psalms 65.2|
