This week, our posts are a bit shorter than normal.

The reason for this, is to allow you time to really think about your own life, examining changes you may need/want to make. My goal is to provide you with Bible Verses and guiding questions to help you discover how God can and WANTS to help you accomplish just that.

The Beans:

Hearing God’s Message to YOU:

Read today’s verse once … what word or phrase stands out to you?


Read the verse a second timeWhat part of your life (what circumstance, relationship, struggle etc.) is this word or phrase speaking to?

Pause to pray, write, or just think, before you read today’s verse a final time. 

The Verse:

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,

 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

The Steam:

What does all of this mean to me/how can I apply that to my life today?

Praying without stopping sounds extremely tiresome! – However, the offer to have peace with God, to feel His presence without end – now that I could sign up for.

If you’re like me, though, the question becomes, where do you find the time?!

I think the key is to place the work on Jesus and take it off of our shoulders.

What do you think God’s will is for you? Are you staying connected to Him in some way throughout the day?

If you’re looking for ways to feel His presence more throughout the day …. Try tuning in to Christian Radio station, google “uplifting bible verses” or read a good, uplifting book. There are little things we can do throughout our day that keep us connected to our Father. Try a few today.
