~Give Attention To My Words~

Here is a portion of one of the devotions that I get."

PROVERBS 4:20-22 NKJ ~ "My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh."

"Giving attention to God's Word is not as easy as it once was. Today we have a multitude of distractions. Busyness seems to be a disease shared by everyone. We all have more than we can do.

Yet . . .

God doesn't change. His Word doesn't change. It still says the same thing it did a thousand years ago -- and it will still say the same thing a thousand years from now.

"Give attention to my words...."

We are confronted with a choice. What is most important? To what shall we give our limited time? God, or....?

God makes promises no one else does -- or can. He created, so He knows how things work.

Life. Life in its fullness. Life as God intended it to be. And health. Isn't that what everyone would like? That is the written guarantee offered by God to the human race -- for paying attention to what He has said."

It does seem that in today's time, we are running nonstop and we have more things that need to be accomplished each day than is humanly possible.
I choose to pay attention to God's Word. I choose life and health. I choose God.

I will update with Jan's results. She had her testing and is currently in with her doctor.

Blessings!
