Honestly, this morning, I’m feeling pressure to hurry. We are traveling today, heading to San Diego. Our youngest daughter is going on a cruise with family friends to attend their daughter’s wedding. Our daughter gets to go be with her friend and their youngest as well. What fun this will be all around. We love going to San Diego and have a lot of fun while there. Plus, the weather is gorgeous. Not that it’s bad here in the valley of the sun, but it will be nice to relax and spend some time at the beach. My husband I may even check out some hiking areas there and take time to walk on the beach. It sounds relaxing, doesn’t it? I’m still taking all of my Time With God items and books so that I can still stick as close to my schedule as possible.
This is a morning where I just want to sink into Lysa’s words. I love her message this morning in Made to Crave. I think it’s my favorite so far. It’s summed up at the end of a quote she includes of a friend of hers. Her friend, E. Titus, says, “…if I could go to food for that (fulfillment, emotional healing, comfort) and never gain an ounce, well then, what would I need God for?” Isn’t that profound? What would I need God for? I know that everyone has problems and all problems are opportunities to grow closer to God and to feel His presence in my life. I want that. I need that. I get so caught up in the challenges and the stress of the entire matter, that it takes me awhile to remember to turn to God for help. Please, God, help me to just remember.
