Summer Pursuit Follow-up (LTLM)

Hey friends!! :)

Remember the post I made back in May about seeking Jesus this summer? Well, now that summer's officially over (insert slight whine and tea sipping noise here), the 2014 Summer Pursuit with Loving The Lord Ministries has come to a beautiful end as well. I had such an *awesome* time with you all, thank you Amy for conducting such a lovely challenge!!!

I think that it's so easy to let our 'one-on-one' time with Jesus slip through the cracks and think, "Bah, He won't mind" or, "I'll do it later", but our time with Him is so precious, so fundamental for our very essence, that we can't brush Him off this carelessly! I love the following quote, it explains very well:
“Because God has made us for Himself
our hearts are restless until they rest in Him.” 
-Augustine of Hippo

To Amy & the LTLM team:
Thank you so much for the challenge! It was a huge help to see my time with Jesus written down and to track down each verse that I memorized. :) And thank you also for the thoughtful rewards that you sent through the mail, it was so kind!!! Truly the generosity of our God! ♥︎

To you, precious reader:
If you participated in the Summer Pursuit challenge, I am so honoured to have been a part of it with you! If not, then that's perfectly okay, you can take the challenge anytime of the year if you wish- just like I did in the winter of 2013! You can download LTLM's chart here. I really pray that all this beautiful time spent (or to spend!) with Jesus brightened your heart and blessed your soul! Keep this close to you: "Joyful are those who obey His laws and search for Him with all their hearts." (Psalm 119:2 NLT)!! ^_^

In love from your sister,

P.S.: You can listen to the "Beautiful to God" conference videos here, it's really worth it! The Lord's love shines boldly through Amy, and her teachings are incredibly eye-opening and sweet to the soul!
