I live intentional Reflection
I want to fill up my life and not just my schedule. I want my priority to be the Kingdom of God. So in the day to day of my everyday, I make the time to listen to the Father. I’m His sheep, I know His voice. He speaks and I obey.
It’s my heart that makes me intentional in my walk with Him. My heart is the seat of my intellect, emotions and will. All three need to be in alignment with His heart. My heart is designed to beat at the cadence of His heart… which is His wisdom, emotions and will.
My Father is intentional. He made me for a purpose. He loves me. He values me. He chose me. He redeemed me. He is preparing a place for me. He provides for me. He renews me. He knows me personally. He will reward me. In countless other ways He’s intentional towards me.
He’s made me to be intentional towards others the way He is intentional towards me. That means I need to guard my heart, for it’s the wellspring of life. I need to be properly aligned to His will, so I can do His will to the people in my everyday world.
I align myself with Him by taking the time to listen to His voice. I’m daily in His word. It cleans me and transforms me. I bring all my cares to Him because He cares for me. I also make the time simply shut up and listen. I let His love wash over me. I engage my heart with His. He holds me like a loving Father and corrects and blesses as I need it. He’s a good, good Father and I can trust Him with my heart.
1. Am I letting His word transform me?
2. Am I bringing my cares to Him?
3. Am I making time to shut up and listen to His voice?

Stuff you should know
Restarting the Prayer List
We’re going to be setting up a different kind of prayer chain. Vera has agreed to lead it. We’ll be calling each other with prayer requests. When someone calls you, you call the next number and leave a message if you can’t reach them, then call the next person in line until you find someone to talk to to pass on the request. We can all start the prayer chain by calling Vera with the request. There will be a sign up sheet on Sunday if you want to be on the list. Everyone should be on list, so sign up on Sunday.
Remember to Pray
Prayer for Marion – For good health for good relationships.
Pray for The Seed to touch and encourage people.
Pray for the coffee we purchase for people during hockey season to be a blessing.
Pray for everyone taking up the Living LIGHT challenge to find joy in the rhythms of grace.
Have a great week!
