I don’t think it would come as a surprise to anyone that, at times, I have trouble setting my priorities. We all do, don’t we? How easy is it to get caught up in things that over time and eternity won’t really matter? I was gently reminded today that I need to re-examine and definitely need to re-prioritize.

Today during my Bible Study time I was lead to the book of Deuteronomy. My focus was on all of chapter 8, but I have a few verses highlighted from chapter 6 that seemed to pertain as well. (I won’t quote all of chapter 8, just a couple of verses!) It certainly doesn’t take a genius to figure out why God brought me here today….especially if you read the entire chapter! I hope that you can get something from these verses as well. Although if you are not in the same place that I am, it might just be something different!

Deuteronomy 6:5 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”

6:13 “Fear the Lord your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.”

8:3 “He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread along but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.”

8:5 “Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the Lord your God disciplines you.”

Everyday certainly won’t be a recap of my devotion! None-the-less, it was on my heart and I wanted to share it with you. (and by that, I mean my mom and sister, since apparently they are the only ones who read my blog!)


The above was a gentle nudge for you to leave me a comment. “But how do I do this?” Trust me, it is simple!!!!

Under the post you will see a little thing that says something like this! (but it will be smaller.)

Click on “comments” and it is a link! Wow, isn’t that neat 🙂

Now, you simply type your comment in the box on the right hand side of your screen where it says

After this you can select your blogger display name if you have a blogger account, other (where you type in whatever title you want to to have…for example “the coolest person ever to live” and no, you don’t have to have a website to choose this option), or you can choose anonymous (but I ask you, why would you pick that when you can put “the coolest person ever to live”? )

Then hit the orange button that says “Publish your comment”

It’s easy peasy! Now, PRACTICE people, PRACTICE!!!! (in case you didn’t already know, I am having a little give-away next month. ..but you will have to leave a comment to enter!) Now, go on…hit that comment link!

    You hit the nail right on the head with your comments today. To be able to get our priorities straight – what a big task. Thanks for reminding me 🙂
    Love you, Mom
