Bible Journaling with Heidi | Seek God First

Hello everybody! I am happy to be back again with a new post! I love this month’s kit, and I think the subject is perfect for the month of November! It is all about seeking God first and giving Him control, instead of our anxiety. And don’t we all get stressed out with all the Holiday preparations and festivities around this time of the year?

So let’s just dive right in. Lately, God has been teaching me a whole lot in this crazy busy season at school. Actually, He started teaching me this during the summer as well, when I started reading a book called “Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World” (an amazing book, I highly recommend it!). God is teaching me about how important it is to take time out of my day to spend with Him, and seek Him first.

We are often so busy and anxious, that we don’t turn to God. But what would happen if we decided to turn to God in those seasons? I know that personally, when I am anxious, I don’t seek God first. I usually panic, and then maybe listen to music. I rarely turn to prayer first.

Matthew 6:33-34 says – “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

There is no use in worrying about tomorrow! Take one day at a time. And when the anxiety and stress creeps in, seek GOD first. It is hard, so hard, but I am convinced that it will help us have more peaceful hearts, and less anxiety.

My challenge for us this week, is to seek God everytime we start feeling that anxiety creeping in. We can pray, read a few verses in our Bible, recite Scriptures we have memorized, or even memorize this passage of Scripture! Let’s make efforts throughout this busy time of the year to seek God first.

Thank you for following along this journey of what God is teaching me! This month’s kit is so cute and the content is amazing. You can get it right here (http://rwrd.io/wkjedmx?c) or at the link in my bio on Instagram. You can follow me there @creative4hisglory for more fun pages this month!

  1. WOW! Such powerful truth Heidi. It’s so true we panic and don’t know what to do when the solution is at the touch of our hands. Thank you for sharing this. And it’s a knock out right to the gut! I feel this way so many times I honestly feel ashamed. Living all my life as a Christian and it’s so hard to learn this lesson well! God bless you

    1. Thank you so much for sharing that! I really appreciate it. I feel that way so often too and also feel ashamed. But I think it is something we need to bring before God and pray about!
