Walking with Women Through the WORD
Thanks for hopping over from Encouragement for Today and my devotion A Word for the Weary
Encouragement for Today Devotional
Hi Wendy! I really enjoyed your devotional this morning, thanks for sharing your story. I watched the video too and it was a blessing. I’ve been feeling the call from God to spend time with Him first thing in the morning since I started working. My afternoons are crazy when I get home and I end up not spending time with Him at all. The thing is, first thing in the morning (before work) is the only time I can seem to fit in my exercise too, which is something that’s really important to me and I enjoy! However, I feel that your devotional was His confirmation to me that He wants me to use my time first thing in the morning to be with Him. I am definitely weary!! So, thank you for being a vessel through which God spoke to me and confirmed what I thought He may be asking me to do. God bless!
I too appreciate this devotional you have posted. I feel as though I don’t give Him the time He deserves. No matter what I have to crawl out of bed and find my Jesus chair so I can spend time with Him. Thank You Wendy.
Would not let me watch the video says it is private.
Cannot view the video, it says it is private..
Hi Wendy, your devotional was awesome. I too have my “special time” with the Lord early in the morning. I wasn’t able to watch your video either.
Would like to view the video as well. I get the private message too.
Would not let me watch says private?
Wendy, I thought I was reading about myself. It sounds just like what I’m having to deal with now. I don’t know why I’m afraid to give up and let God be God in my life. Please pray for me, I don’t make it easy for God to work in my life because I have a problem with believing God wants to help me and I can do it myself. Thanks Wendy.
I read your email about the Jesus chair . I am ther and as I read your Jesus chair, I relized That is where I am – You hit the spot and gave me some answers – or – insights to my fellings I could not put words to. your video was blocked , I am sure it was Good for ypur email was. Thank you for writing that.
Betty I read you reply . Hope you don`t mind if I reply to your comment . I to at times Don`t trust God myself, I feel like I have to do it by myself if I don’t see God doing anything. I know for myself that I see God as a man . and I see god that way, man is untrusting ETC.
Thank you for your devotional today. I followed your advice years ago and read through the whole bible. Not in a year. It took two years but I did it. However, I stopped my quiet times after I finished reading it. For a long time now, I’ve been feeling called to spend time with God. But, I’m not a morning person either. Thank you for sharing your struggles. You are not a disappointment. It is waaaay more encouraging to hear a willing woman like me struggle with this and conquer it (with God’s help), than it is to hear someone who did it perfectly. I’m pretty sure I will do my fair share of grumbling too. But, my hope is that one day I will get to the place you have and appreciate, even look forward to, my times with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Please pray that God would enable me. My spirit is willing but my flesh is weak. A lot would have to change for me to set aside time in the mornings again, but my wish is to spend time with God before the day begins. I pray for the ladies who felt the same way after reading your devotional – that God would enable them to spend time with Him every day. In Jesus Name.
P.S. Your video was very touching.

Wendy, I have been spending my quiet time with God at night for a couple of hours before I drift off to sleep. The weekends allow me to possibly spend a few quiet times each day! I am always conscious of the fact that our Lord never sleeps! He is always waiting for us…listening to our hearts and strengthening us when we are weary…anytime, day or night! Praise Jesus! Thanks for your encouragement!
Thank for your devotional. I am doing as much as I can to reconnect with God, as that relationship with Him has been missing for some time. I am going thru a rough patch in life, and feeling a bit weary as well, so that sense of talking to God again, calling Him into my life has be so reassuring/helpful. I want to strengthen my relationship with Him, and setting time aside in the morning is something I would like to do. Do you have any suggestions, where in the Bible I should start reading? Is it just start from the very beginning, and is there a particular way or practice to follow?
I really enjoyed your devotional today. Like you, I too had to learn the secret of early morning prayer. Now, I can hardly go a day without it – or should I say I don’t want to.
My time with the Lord is the only thing that keeps me sweet. Especially, during those trying – testing – times of trials! Thank you for sharing your heart with us.
thanks for your devotional. I really needed to read it and listen to your video…I have been feeling very angry and have not been very nice lately either…I am about to have major surgery and have been scared and feeling desperate for the Lord’s peace. Your devotional really touched me, and is confirmation that God has been calling me to actually get on my knees in prayer each morning, before getting the long day rolling. Thanks for your honesty and sharing!!
