A treasure I've found...

our offices have been undergoing renovations for about 6 weeks now - it seems like a never ending project, but there has been some good come out of it. mainly, it has caused me to sort through some of the piles i've accumulated over the past 2 1/2 years here in hazlehurst and rid myself of those things that i did not - or no longer need...

at any rate, in doing this, i discovered a book i didn't know i had: Daily Help by Charles Spurgeon. It is a small book that is extremely old, i believe i inherited from my former pastor, Rev. Tracy Brinson, and contains a thought for each day of the year.

At any rate, i plan on incoporating this book into my devotional life for the upcoming year and as i sat down to read for today -i found that tomorrow's thought had to be shared...

He who lives without prayer - he who lives with little prayer - he who seldom reads the Word - he who seldom looks up to heaven for a fresh influence from on high - he will be the man whose heart will become dry and barren; but he who calls in secret on his God - who spends much time in holy retirement - who delights to meditate on the words of the Most High - whose soul is given up to Christ - such a man must have an overflowing heart: and as his heart is, such will his life be.

May the new year find us all with "overflowing" lives.
