Lord, I know you’re in this one! I love how personal you are. You know me like a book. 😉 Even the jacket that I put on carefully as a testimony. It is Your testimony, but they do judge the book by its cover… and then unfortunately judge You because of me.
Tonight is make a wish list of 5 books to read. Just today, You allowed 2 books on hold at the library… books You encouraged me to look into, to come in. When I read the Challenge, I smiled with you and asked 5? You made it quickly easy.
1st…You have convicted me to read Your word The Holy Bible through, as any other book I would. It’s all about interest and discipline. If someone called while reading, watching a movie, or online, I would let them know (if I even heard them) that I am busy.
2nd… There is the devotional You had a dear sister at church buy and sign inside to encourage me. Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence. I will absolutely continue this as every single day, almost every single word has been personal! It’s been Your personal love note to me!
3rd… You’ve been encouraging me to focus on gaining confidence in You and keeping it… not in myself but You as my strength. The only person I know who encourages others to do so is Leslie Ludy. I have her quote as my cover picture on FB.
The most beautiful women I’ve ever observed are those that have exchanged a self-focused life for a Christ-focused one. They are confident, but not in themselves. Instead of self-confidence, they radiate with Christ confidence. – Leslie Ludy
You’ve also been telling me to be confident in You, I need to be set apart. Wouldn’t You know it (and of course you do!), Leslie has a series on being Set Apart. The one You have brought in is Set Apart: Feminity
4th… Her other book that came in is When God Writes Your Love Story. You and a friend of ours are discussing this. And it is the testimony that You have written in my life.
