Refocusing Energies & Quiet Time

Life like a CameraThe past few days have been about refocusing energies and quiet time. I definitely needed the time to analyze my thought processes again as well as get rid of the distracting thoughts. The daily process is a continual thing that needs realignment.

I speak about the flesh today, the natural man who looks to do things his way no matter what. But I also speak to the spirit man of those who know that we can do nothing (no thing) outside of God. What He allows us to do, even when we don’t consider the consequences, is about Him and not us; about us drawing closer to Him, trusting Him, leaning on Him and glorifying Him, not self. There are several Scriptures that come to mind as I write today.
