Knee-time NOT Me-time!

Today a few of us got together once again for Bible study, after a four week hiatus due to holidays and then bad weather and illnesses.  It was so great to be back together and we missed the ladies who were unable to attend for various reasons.  We have been discussing the book by Nancy Leigh DeMoss,  The Lies Women Believe. We previously had discussed emotions and depression and the circumstances in our lives that we blame for or may cause our periods of depression and continued that discussion today. 

I plan to write more about that at another time; however I did want to share a quote that one of the ladies in our group shared with us today.  I don’t know who to credit for this quote but felt it is such a wonderfully simple, yet important, piece of advice to remember when we may be having a bad day, feeling depressed, downhearted, sadness, etc.  

WHEN LIFE GETS TOO HARD TO STAND—-KNEEL!    Kneel in prayer to the Lord; take your troubles to Him.   He wants to hear us; wants to hear about those thorns in our flesh  and help us with them.  He takes joy in listening to us talk about the good things and the not so good things in our lives.   He loves all of His children and delights in us when we are sharing our lives with Him.   

Can it possibly ever be any simpler than that?   Is there any piece of advice that is easier to remember?      Instead of wishing for some ME-time when things are not going well for us, let’s just try out some KNEE-time!  

Wishing everyone a wonderful day and evening filled with all the blessings the Lord has for you!

1 Peter 5:6-7 (KJV) Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

  1. I am always saying that exact same thing to my children. As soon as I sense they are getting all about “me, me, me”. I tell them that is when they need to have some knee time. How marvelous that someone there says that same thing. Makes the world seem so much less big. 🙂
