Please don't read this post...

I've been thinking a lot lately about being authentic...about ridding my life of hypocrisy and living with my heart fully engaged...

As I watch the numbers on my blog hits climb, I'm humbled to think that God can use my words to reach others, and I pray for all of you who read this little blog.

But, I've also been convicted that maybe some of you shouldn't be reading these posts...


I know, that sounds crazy - right?

Hang in there a moment. 

Today, I feel that God wants me to gently remind all who read this why you maybe shouldn't read this post. It's about priorities, and I want to make sure that above all, you are drawing closer to God. There are only 24 hours in a day, and only so much you can accomplish....

If you haven't spent time in prayer, please don't read this post! 
Let God's presence fill you first.

If you haven't read your Bible today, please don't read this post! 
God's Word is Living Water, and my words are empty and ineffective if you are thirsty.

Behold, I long for your precepts;
in your righteousness give me life!
Psalm 119: 40

Today I urge you not to read this post, but rather

seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness...
Matthew 6:33

Have a blessed day! : )

Thanks for the reminder! It's too late for me not to read this post, but not too late for me to remember that I should be careful and intentional about how I spend my time.
