“Once it was the Blessing, now it is the Lord.
Once it was the Feeling, now it is His Word.
Once His Gifts I wanted, now the Giver alone.
Once I sought Healing, now Himself alone.” – A.B. Simpson
I’ve really been feeling the need for the Lord’s presence in my life lately. I guess the correct thing to say, since I believe He is with me always, is actually that I’ve been feeling like I need to readjust my focus. I need to seek out what He wants for my life, and what His Word says about living. Too much lately, I’ve been living inside of my head, and worrying about all kinds of things, which does not make for a happy person. I don’t want to be that person. I want to be happy, focused and fulfilled. I’m ready to change my view. (Again.) But isn’t that what all of us forward moving people need to do from time to time? Readjust, set our sights where they need to be, and keep moving forward.
