7QT

See Jen's 7 Quick Takes to see links to everyone participating. My theme for these blurbs is "things God is doing in my life".  I'm twitter-sizing my takes to keep them "quick".


1
Lectio divina last Friday rubbed it in that God teaches and leads, and I should have listened instead of driving the van that overheated.
2
Sat. wanted to meditate/enjoy #5, but still felt guilty about van deal. LD says, "Sing & rejoice, daughter, I am coming to dwell among you."
3
That #5 reminded me of Job 1:11, where Satan says we will blaspheme God for allowing us trials. Praise God in your troubles!
4
Got message to focus on God and let Him handle money etc.  Been trying not to stress about rent. Got surprise check Mon. Took care of that.
5
Sun's LD struck me in a literal way. Today gave a spare jacket to a lady at my kids' school who had given her own jacket to her daughter.
6
Tired Tues. Rediscovered how hard it is to hear God when tired. LD reminds me doing his will is what matters, not appearance/extras.
7
Thurs LD (w/ Wed readings), "I am God; there is no other" reminded me not to listen when I feel I HAVE to eat that cookie/snack/whatever.
