Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 8

Setting Aside Time for God
Nehemiah 8:10

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Everyday, I try to find at least one moment when I can focus on the Lord. It usually works best for me first thing in the day, before all the busyness begins. It’s not easy to do; and often, something will demand my attention. Doing it consistently takes determination. Being quiet before God, focusing on Jesus, helps set the tone for the rest of the day. It’s like when I tune my guitar before playing – it makes the song sound so much better. Perhaps that’s why Nehemiah 8:10 says: “The joy of the Lord is your strength.”

May you find your strength in the Lord as you make time for him each day. The joy of the Lord is your strength, my friend.
