Word Filled Wednesday








All alone in the early hours of morning with a Bible, a cup of tea or coffee, and the Lord. There is no better way to begin a day. Before the cares and crushing stress of a busy day, we need to draw strength from our quiet time with the Lord Jesus. We can pray, and think about the promises He has made to us. We can read, and find His will for the day. We can sit quietly, and listen to the Spirit of God, drawing our own strength from His Mighty Presence. He is our God. Let us listen to Him, and learn.

Very nice verse. All the strengths that we have everyday are all from Him so it is just right to spend time with Him through prayers.
