So today when I was “Black Friday” shopping, I turned the corner to run SMACK into a end cap with which I had forgotten I was looking for!  It was a good thing!  This summer when I was unpacking from our move, I ran across a great devotional book my husband’s aunt had given me a few years ago.  It has been a huge blessing and comfort to me through this time of change in our lives.  When I saw there was a children’s devotional version of the book, I knew we needed to get it.  

So the awesome book I’m talking about is “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young.  It’s just simply a wonderful way to start, or end your day.  Here’s the link to the one I’m reading currently.

I can’t wait to start reading the children’s version with my kids.  It just has a way of giving you a little wow, or hummmm, or sometimes a smack when you need it.  

Speaking of, God gave me a little SMACK the other day.  Yes, just picture the awesome Jethro Gibbs from NCIS, tapping Denozo on the back of the head.  Recently, God like Gibbs whacked me with the message.  He impressed upon me how I had totally been striving and how in life that I cannot do or make happen one thing that He doesn’t want or can’t give me.  My striving and “trying to make things happen” will not add or make better one day of my life.  Actually it had made my life a little worse.  He made it ever so apparent to me that He has been, IS and will supply all my needs and even more than I can dream or imagine.  I am so grateful for this message.

So now, I ask you, what has God smacked you with lately?
