NatWell. . .   WEEK 1 is drawing near and MAN what a week?!?!?!  The night before we began this 90 DAY Journey of RENEWAL, the sweetest, most precious man I have ever known went to sing with Jesus!  It was one of the most unexpected events that has happened in a very long time.  Probably the last was the sudden ABSENSCE of my precious Mee-Maw Hilda.  The most unexpected are the most painful.  Sunday night instead of preparing for this weeks devotions, I found myself walking down a wide and long hallway with some of the most precious people with whom I have lived my life.  As I walked with my family, my best friends, my life I became sick as to what was meeting us at the other end. . .   

I have to say that it has been very hard to focus on mind. . .  body. . .  and spirit!  But of all times, I knew there could not be a more perfect time.  Now, just to convince my heart. 

So. . .  May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through.  May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.  1 Thessalonians 5:23 – 24

May God HIMSELF. . .   how personal!  Nobody else!  He’s gonna stop what HE is doing, and handle you HIMSELF!  He’s gonna do it, cause HE is faithful!  Oh, THANK YOU!  I LOVE it! 

I am overwhelmed and BLESSED at the women who are joining in on this 90 DAY adventure!  Oh my word, how my soul is BLESSED!  To be joining such amazing women who are hungry for Jesus, desiring a closer walk with HIM!  I am so excited!  Each week Joy and I will be sharing  and encouraging you all as we venture through the next 90 days.  So, KNOW that I am praying for each and everyone one of you as you SEEK Him! 

 Joy:  I have to say that God really got my attention today.  My prayer has been for the past week for God to give me a gentle reminder when I get off track.  Let me explain:  Like not making Him the priority like Partow talks about on Day 4.  God wants to be first on our priority list and on Day 2 I had made a commitment to get up early to give Him my FIRST 30 minutes of my day.  I don’t know about you guys, but I can use all the reminders I can get.  Somehow my mind gets lost in “mommy” land or even worse “Joy” land.

This morning I got up early and before I knew what I was doing I was sitting at the computer with my cup of coffee….in “Joy” land!  This was my previous routine.  Get up, get the kids off to school, get my coffee and then check my email and maybe write.  I had already forgotten my #1 priority.  So God gently reminded me….with His humor of course!  My computer wouldn’t GO….slow as Christmas, not pulling anything up.  I got so frustrated that I turned it off and that’s when I remembered my commitment.  I have to say it gave me a good chuckle!    God knows exactly what I need and exactly how to push my buttons (He should, He created me)!

I have always been one to do my reading and Bible studies at night.  My excuse has always been my kids or that I am just not a morning person.  I can tell you that I have noticed a difference just by moving my reading and studying to the ”First” part of my day, making God the First priority! It sets the tone for the day and helps put everything in perspective.  I hope you all are enjoying this study.  I really am looking forward to hearing all of your thoughts!

Nat:  Oh my word!  Thank you for sharing!  I believe you just read my thoughts!  I am praying for those “gentle reminders”! 

So excited!!

We LOVE you,

Nat & Joy
