~Spiritual Sundays~ "Take Time to Be Holy"

Hello Spiritual Sunday!
I have been MIA for Way to long now! I have really missed you!
I decided to join today and pray that you all have been doing well.
I see that Spiritual Sundays blog has a lot more followers and a lot more wonderful blogs joining/linking up! PTL! I look forward to visiting some new blogs!
This year I want to spend more time focusing on a quiet time each day and i am really enjoying the daily Bible reading plan that I started last July! PTL! I have been sticking to it (thanks to accountability help from the great ladies at the "Conservative Homeschooler"!), and for my birthday present, my dear King, husband bought me a MacArthur study Bible! I also found a great planner that is a devotional planner, all-in-one so I am really excited about how well it has all fell together! God is soo GOOD! Praise His Holy Name!
I wanted to share a song today that has been going over and over in my head this morning! "Take Time to be Holy"! "‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy." Leviticus 19:2
God calls us to be Holy, as He is Holy! What a high calling! We must put off the old man and put on the new man. We must cleanse ourselves and rebuke evil and do not tread the paths of evil!
We have been reading Proverbs on Sunday mornings, for our home church and leaning about the foolish woman vs. wisdom. Again and again Solomon warns against the paths that lead to foolishness and in the end, Death!! The paths of wisdom lead to life and many days! What a strong message, and one that we should take to heart every day and moment of our lives.
God bless your Sunday!

"Take Time To be Holy"
William D. Longstaff

"Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on His Word.
Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.

Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret, with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.

Take time to be holy, let Him be thy Guide;
And run not before Him, whatever betide.
In joy or in sorrow, still follow the Lord,
And, looking to Jesus, still trust in His Word.

Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each motive beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above."
