God Time

Hello precious friends, praying you are all doing well. I have missed you all, but my prayers have not ceased for you, nor of course has my love. I am finally beginning to feel a little better. Things are still really rough for us financially, but I refuse to let it get me down. I have been spending some deep moments in prayer, and have made some decisions. Number one, I deleted my face book account. I was spending too much time on there, was not what God wants for me. As for my blog, I am only going to spend two days a week on my blog, until the beginning of the year. Mondays I will blog, and Fridays, I will make a video for my blog. I need to revive my health, my eyes, and most importantly, my relationship with my heavenly Father. I will never stop praying for all of you, or caring for you, or loving you all. I pray that the upcoming holidays will be the most blessed you have ever had. You can continue to email me with prayer needs, or just to talk, I will be checking my emails daily. Much love, and many blessings to all of you.

Praying that God will bless you as you spend your time focusing on Him!

Godsgalnj said...

Everything will work out, dear Denise - because you love God. He loves you and is smiling on you because of your faith and trust in Him for everything. *hugs* Love you!

God bless you, Denise, as you follow the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Praying for you always. I will look forward to your posts on Mondays and Fridays.

They're tough, though needful choices, aren't they? I've done some similar trimming to my time in cyberspace.

I hope you continue to feel better, and better.

Be blessed,
Kathleen

Blessings Denise, Sounds like a good plan! I'm with you dear one in prayer and time with God...that too is a great plan! I wish I had the password to open up God's face book account over you with many abundant blessings to meet all your needs, especially the burden of the finances... but since you are face to face with Him often and shine His light, it's good to hear that you are taking care of yourself, your health, and resting your eyes!

Those birthday candles are getting closer and closer! And that Shortybear is dancing up a storm!
Are you still in the battle? Are you still defending your territory?
I missed you over this weekend and past week... but I know that you must rest your eyes because my eyes feel it today so I can't even imagine your pain... please listen to His Word and cover yourself as you pray! I love you so much! and DITTO for all your beautiful words and heartfelt prayers and thoughts!

(((hugs)))Love you, praying & believing God's Word for you,
Peggy

Cathy said...

Sweet Denise, I do think you need to rest your eyes, though we will really miss you. I certainly understand. You have to do whatever it takes to get you feeling better. Love, prayers and hugs ~

Bernadine said...

Denise we'll miss your sweet presence online but we want you to take care of yourself. I'll be praying for you.

Sweet Denise - I am so glad you are feeling better. Yes dear, you need to take care of yourself and of course there is no better way than to spend time with the Heavenly Father.

Blessings,
Joan

God bless you, dear friend.

Donetta said...

Hi sweetie up at midnight praying for you
love you

April said...

I think we all understand your reasons, Denise. So, enjoy having some God Time...you're in my prayers!

Saleslady371 said...

I think your decisions are good ones, Sweetie. All of us bloggers have to reset our boundaries and priorities from time to time. Time with Him is most important!

Love and hugs,
Mary

Amydeanne said...

I'll be praying for you too Denise! You are a blessing & God is good!

Marsha said...

Sweetie, you know I love you. I will definitely be praying for you as you spend some quality time with Him. I'm praying, praying, praying for you and Eddie. I'll try and call you Thursday if that's okay. Love you!

Angie Knight said...

Good decision to listen to what He desires of us...I pray the same prayer---I only want to do --and go where He leads. God will bless you as you seek Him more.

I pray for you (you came to my mind in the week hours this morning) continually and know that God is OUR provider. All we need is IN HIS HANDS.

Love you!

Lisa said...

Hi Denise,
I don't blame you for deleting your facebook, I use it for work and can keep in touch with my co workers and trading hours and such so it is nice, I gave up blogging except for when I have time. Trying to post everyday is ridiculous for me.
Please keep in touch....
Love you friend
Lisa

Anne Lang Bundy said...

There are a number of people I know who have recently decided to blog less often. For me, I think it's making me think harder about my words now that I've gone from seven times a week to twice.

You remain in my prayers, pretty lil bear. May the Lord richly bless your increasing moments with Him, and bless you abundantly, exceedingly above your highest hopes.

Ever so much love to you! ♥

Niecy said...

Hello Sweet Angel Denise.
I'm so glad that your health is getting better. Sometimes Blogs and Social Networks can take up so much of our time, time away from the Lord. So I respect your decisions. You and your family are always in my prayers and in my heart. Just stay in the word of God and He will see you through anything.
God Loves You As Do I,
Niecy

Alleluiabelle said...

I love you my dear precious sister ever so much. My prayers are always being said for you and for the Lord's divine hand of miracles to manifest over you and your lovebug. I miss you here.

I will be back on Friday to look at your sweet face and to listen to your dear voice.

Big Hugs,
Alleluiabelle

Blessings Denise... many writing me about you! I tell them to wait until tomorrow!

YOU DON'T NEED TO PUBLISH THIS! I just want you to know you're in our prayers and we're sending much LOVE, missing you and holding onto those 40 scriptures for YOU!!!

Many blessings and much love Denise

Rebecca said...

I respect your decision and pray that God will restore and refresh you body, soul, spirit, mind - in EVERY conceivable way! His glory and your good WILL be enhanced as you continue your obedience to His Word and will.

Sassy Granny ... said...

It's always a worthwhile endeavor to assess & readjust priorities. Sounds like the Lord is seeking more of you; and you more of Him. What a perfect choice for a season of challenge.

Keep us posted, for surely the Lord is doing something incredible behind-the-scenes.

Blessings & hugs,
Kathleen

I have been seeking His face too. Sometimes He uses those rough times to draw us in a little closer for rest and renewing our spirit.
We have now both been without jobs for a month and a half...needless to say things are rough.
But although my soul cries out for relief...He is filling my spirit in a fresh new way.
Keep seeking His face....the pure in heart will see God. Mat 5:8

LisaShaw said...

Precious sister, I'm thankful to the LORD for His leading over you and for your obedience to Him...you are right -- take care of your health dear one. Take care of you. I love you dearly and you remain in my prayers.

Psalm 27:13-14

Cranberry Morning said...

Miss you, my dear blogging friend. God bless you as you continue to serve Him and trust in Him daily! I am wondering how you are feeling.

Rebecca said...

I've been chekin' in! You're in my thoughts and prayers. Waiting for a video to know how you are. Meanwhile, may God's goodness and mercy follow you closely, dear friend.

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

You, my dear, must take care of you...whether its physical health or your devotion to your heavenly Father!!! Both, I can truly understand.

I do hope, tho, that you're feeling much better than when you took a break from blogging.

And, ps...I never did like Facebook myself. LOL

Prayers for you and yours!!!

Beth in NC said...

We send prayers from The Internet Cafe..we do miss you and hope that you are healed and whole soon! Taking time to 'rest' in the Lord is what HE is calling you to do right now. Peace be with you in that.

Sue said...

Much love to you Denise, as one who used to blog for hours I know what you are talking about. Ever so often I have to step back and re focus on what is most important in my life and that is my relationship with God. I so related.may the Lord bless you and I am praying for you.
Hugs,
