Times of Refreshing
Chosen by God!
Some may have noticed that I've not been posting any Encouragement Nuggets since April 7th. I decided I needed a break, a time of refreshing in the Presence of God. I didn't want any distractions. I wanted God, silence, solitude, the Word, and my journal.
Sometimes we can become so busy we miss why we do what we do. And while what we do may be a good thing, sometimes good things can become idols and distractions to the God things we should be doing. We must remember that just because we've always done something one way doesn't mean we should continue doing it that same way. We have to take time away and seek God's face because seasons change. It's only through time spent with Him that we learn what we need to do in a particular season.
He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a little while”—for there were many [people who were continually] coming and going, and they could not even find time to eat. (Mark 6:31 AMPC)
That's exactly what I needed, time away from the responsibility of posting a daily devotion, feeding others, being there for others, to feed myself just for the sheer joy of being in the Word and communing with my Abba Father. I wanted to spend time with Him, to just enjoy Him.
During this time I've gotten clarity on what I should be doing in this season. While I don't know how long this season will be I do know what my focus is to be.
I will continue writing devotions for Daily Encouraging Words by Leisa, on Facebook, and my Encouragement Nuggets Devotions on my website, www.leisawilkins.com, Monday - Friday only. I will take the weekends to refresh myself. I encourage you to check it out if you haven't and subscribe on my website, and “like” Daily Encouraging Word by Leisa, so you can keep up with my ministry.
I am going to focus on Leisa Wilkins Ministries, believing God for speaking engagements, continue teaching Bible studies, at my church and believing God for opportunities to teach at other churches and conferences. (A booking form is available on my website!) I will continue writing and publishing more devotionals, as encouraging people in the Word of God is my assignment. I encourage you to check out the two devotionals I've already published, available at Amazon. I have two more in the works - "31 Days of Encouragement" and "Positioning Yourself to Hear the Voice of God!" Stay tuned and stay connected as exciting things are about to happen at Leisa Wilkins Ministries!
Please keep me in prayer as I move into this new season that God has me focused on.
Be Encouraged! ❤
