Waiting Before Working

When I was a little girl, my dad would sing a little jingle, "Whistle While You Work" when we had tasks to do. That's still a great way to attack the duties of my day!
Our devotional for today says, our Heavenly Father prompts us to "Wait Before You Work." "By waiting with Me before you begin the day's activities...this act of faith ...is noted in the spirit world, where your demonstration of trust weakens principalities and powers of darkness." (252)
I try to focus my waking thoughts on Him...praising Him! It helps to set the emotional climate of my mind and sets my heart in the right direction. There are so many distractions in my day, so having paused to wait in His Presence, to read from His Word, makes a huge and worthwhile difference!
Although no one may "see" me...those in the heavenlies take notice and the powers of darkness are weakened while all the Powers of Heaven rise up to strengthen and minister to us.
Waiting in the Right Place...dmc


  1. On Saturday I used a phrase from an old hymn. My mind kept searching for the rest of the words. Have you ever been unable to "let it go" until you find the answer you are trying to remember? Well, I got out an old hymnal and here are the words of the chorus of "Where They Need No Sun" by Haldor Lillenas.
    In that city where they need no sun,
    When at last my earthly race is run,
    I shall see my Saviour's face,
    Revel in His love and grace
    In that city where they need no sun.
    I can just imagine Mom Colaw in that wonderful place!

  2. With the mention of Mrs. Colaw, I must share this song.
