1. On Sunday at church a dear sister with a gift for intercession and teaching spoke to the congregation.
She told us, having a relationship with Jesus is simple. Being in His word is a very important part. But get up in the morning and pray.
Say "Jesus, what word do you have for me today?" Then listen. Receive the Word. Thank the Lord for the Word. Then talk to Him like He is your friend. Tell Him your hurts and failures, your joys and victories. Have a serious relationship with Him.
2. On my very first Monday of waking up early to have quiet time with God I was reading my email devotional from Proverbs 31 Ministries. The topic was being a bold christian. I clicked the link to Karen Ehman's blog and found a very valuable tip. Tell people you meet that you are a christian early in your conversation with them. This doesn't have to be robotic "hello my name is Sarah and I am a christian." Praise Him for something in your life in front of that other person or people. So they might see Christ's light in you.
That is what I learned this week and I am so very grateful for those lessons.
