For today's Slow Down Saturday, I wanted to share this verse with you. I'm not always consistent with my daily Bible readings, which is really bad for me. It was like this especially when I was was sick during most of March and part of April with IBS issues. I hadn't read the Bible in a while, and I started to feel sluggish and stagnant inside, as if something was stuck. It felt like something in my spirit was wrong.
When I finally started feeling better, I got back into my daily Bible readings. When I read my Bible and started spending time in prayer again, I instantly--and I mean instantly--felt refreshed and renewed. It was a reminder that God is with me. I was reminded to seek the Lord's will and His guidance. I remembered that following His purpose for me makes me feel like I'm on the right path after wandering lost for a while.
Take a moment today to stop and read a passage in your Bible, and spend a few minutes in prayer. Be reminded that God is there and God still speaks to us.

As for me, I would appreciate prayer for my health. I have been finding that my IBS reacts badly to things that should have been okay for me to eat, so I've had a lot of unexpected pain. It's been really hard for me to work.
How can I pray for you?
