Well it has been a long time since I’ve written a blog, not that I planned on just stopping it just kind of happened. So yesterday I was at work and praying about my life and a few situations, asking the Lord to show me, bring me to where I needed to be and he spoke to me about my devotional time……I read daily but it’s become just a time to hurry up and get through with what I’m reading so I can get on FB and the gram and see what’s going on in the world.
So I asked him to tell me what book to read in the Bible, a place where he can speak to me. This morning I went to the book of Haggai and BAM there is was… so for the next few weeks this is where I will camp out. I read the first 7 verses and that was enough for me to chew on all day today. …. here is what jumped out at me to dig into.
1:4 and 1:6
“Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple[a] to lie in ruins?” —– verse 4 – “
You have sown much, and bring in little;
You eat, but do not have enough;
You drink, but you are not filled with drink;
You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm;
And he who earns wages,
Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.” Verse 6
The Lord has been pressing me pretty hard over my finances the last few weeks…. will continue this tomorrow with my personal application to my life.
