Feb 16 – Characteristics of God

Then He said to them all,
“If anyone desires to come after Me,
let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily,
and follow Me.       ~~Matthew 10:38

As you know, daily habits are hard to develop and easy to lose.  Keeping ones priorities in check can get lost in the desire to do for others and ourselves. This daily reading time, observation time, meditation time is intended to not just get me into the Word regularly, but also provide encouragement to you to do the same.

How can we believe, worship, dedicate, follow something, someone, we do not know.  As I decide each step I take today, I have to make choices, follow God’s nature or not.  Clues to how He would like us to live are found in the book of Numbers.  Clues about what we should and should not do and what we should be praying daily for.

After a time of rest, it's time to resurrect this blog with a light on prayer and building our own personal prayer garden. A woman of faith, I want to share my personal insights into God and the Gospel in the hopes that these touch another heart, encouraging them to come to Christ.
