    I’m reading the book “Living In Christ’s Presence” by Dallas Willard. He talks about this very verse, seeking God with all of your heart and soul. It is hard to know for sure that you are doing that. He suggests that when you realize that you desire something more than your desire for Christ, you stop and ask yourself some questions. Delve into why it seems more important. Spend time thinking about it and praying. His suggestion was, ‘I care more about what people think of me and that they like me’. Why is that so important to me? Where did that start? Who specifically do I care about what they think of me? And so forth.
    I think that sometimes we desire something more than Christ, but haven’t really thought about why or how to let it go and trust God.
    Maybe I’ve got too much time on my hands these days, but it is something to ponder. I am sort of happy to have things slow down and a chance to spend time with God. Life was going at such a frantic pace for all of us. As someone said this week, it is as though God put up a STOP sign for the world. I pray we can use this time to deepen our walk with Christ.

    One last thing, Beth Moore asked, “what is the knot in your rope?” When you are in free fall, what is the knot that stops and holds you? Is there a verse that does that for you?
    Blessings to you dear friends, on this rainy Saturday morning.

      Thank you for your words.

      This idea of asking what we desire more than Christ can explain why we do what we don’t want to do, as in Romans 7. Good food for thought!

    Tina and Churchmouse: While I appreciate the entire SRT sisterhood and the individual reflections I read each day, I must admit that I look forward to yours the most as they always seem to reach out to the entire community of believers with the specific intent of drawing them closer to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! And for that, sisters, I am truly grateful. Thanks be to GOD from whom all blessings flow!!

    Have a wonderful weekend, sisters, and please stay healthy and keep those around you healthy as well.

    I can’t fall back asleep. I’m not worried but been having issues sleeping lately. As well as my daughter. She’s experiencing some anxiety as she’s been home for a week now. She misses her friends. But… I’ve been so thankful for the last two days as she’s gotten up as I get ready for work and joining me for devotions here at SRT. Today is Saturday and I couldn’t sleep anymore but I’m thankful that my daughter is sleeping. I am so thankful that she and I were seeking the Lord “together!”
    I would appreciate prayers as my son is driving home from Southern California. His Christian college asked the students to vacate. He was able to get a ride with a buddy who has to drive through our town. They loaded up as much as they could and will be heading home. I heard the LA Freeways are empty which will be good for these boys.

    When this study first started I was unsettled by the brash nature of the material. But God has been using Jeremiah and the daily devotionals to remind us all of His promises. Thank you to SRT for this timely Bible study and for leading us closer to God in this Lent season.

      Blessings Elizabeth.
