Make Time For Him Today!
‘...I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS...’
‘Hello there. When you wakened this morning, I thought perhaps you’d talk to Me
and involve Me in your day, but you were preoccupied fi nding something to wear for
work. When you’d time to spare, I thought we’d have a few moments together, but
you got on the phone and started talking to somebody else.

Your Spiritual Compass
‘ABRAHAM...SAW THE PLACE AFAR OFF’
Imagine God sending Abraham to a place ‘which I will tell thee of’ (Genesis 22:2).
Women tend to understand this better than men. When I ask my wife what she’s
shopping for, she’ll sometimes say, ‘I’m not sure, but I’ll know it when I see it!’

how many others are running away from it. God has given you a spiritual compass;
learn to use it.
