Stop!!!

Stop what you are doing this very minute of your life and see if it's pleasing in God's sight. See if you are headed down the right road or if you are heading for a fall. Stop and think if you are heeding your Saviour's call or if you are falling by the wayside or if you are beginning to stray away from Him.

Stop and take time to really seek His face and ask God to keep you in your place. Stop and count the minutes that you really give to God each day. The amount of time that you seek His mercy and really pray.

Stop and count your blessings several times a day and you will be surprised how little time is exercised in giving God the praise He so richly deserves. Then stop and realize just how little time we give to Him and just how much He does for us.

Stop and listen to that little voice within your heart and if you will only hear pure wisdom God will speak to you.

He will give you a yellow caution light warning you to slow down and come to a stop and if you will just obey Him He will give you a green light to take you straight through your day.

Just some thoughts I had on my heart for today. Don't get too busy that you can't just stop and listen to your Lord. He's always ready to listen to us when we call!!

Ms Julie first hope you all get over this sickness soon, also we are still praying that you are able to come with Preacher for our Revival but the Lord knows and if you do come still come prepared to sing. Now for you post thanks for the reminder it is always good to stop and look at these things that you have posted. Thank You for posting them.

Great reminder to slow down! We get so active doing what we think is service to God when in reality we are neglecting our time with Him. Hope you all are feeling much better. I did a post about my chicken soup. Wish I could serve you some!

If we were to stop and do all those suggestions, we would be happier Christians :-)

That's a great post. The title really caught my eye! I really enjoyed that.

P.S. Tori decided that it had to be you that made me sick this week. Sorry, you'll have to swing by and hear what she had to say about you!
