The Wednesday Walk

     I am really enjoying studying the Book of Esther with my new Bible study group.  She was so brave, even though she knew she could be put to death for her actions. She fasted and prayed for her people and God protected her. Even though God is not mentioned in this book, His fingerprints are all over the story.  He is always there for those who believe 24/7.  That is such a comfort to me.
     Our challenge this week is to fast and make time to pray for someone.  My choice is to fast from the Internet tomorrow and use that time with God. I have wanted to make prayer cards, a specific journal to keep track of verses, and cut out a charity quilt, but lately I have let the computer become a major time suck. My SIL and I have discussed the good vs. the bad of computerland so many times.  The First Commandment says, "I am the Lord your God. You will have no other gods, but Me."

     141)  Fasting
     142)  My sight
     143)  Devotional books that keep me focused
     144)  Flylady
     145)  Laughter
     146)  Warmth from the sun on my face
     147)  The guests who come to the soup kitchens

     See you Friday!
     Blessings, Deborah
