Rhonnie Scheuerman’s Inspiration Station For All In Need This Morning
Author Bond West: I’d hit a snag in my daily devotional time. It is no big deal I told myself I can handle this:

I’d put it on the sofa until I finished my quite time in my prayer chair.occasionally I’d read it first, before the Bible. Of course there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. It began to trouble me. I couldn’t concentrate on God’s Word after man’s words. I tried to reason with myself “This is silly . It’s legalism to have to read the Bible before the newspaper.”

For four months, I didn’t have “I a quiet time. “I could simply stop taking the paper, I told my, defeated self. I didn’t . I lost the battle and my quiet time, and what’s more, I didn’t enjoy reading the newspaper.
Then one day a letter arrived from the newspaper company: For financial reasons, delivery to our home would no longer be possible, we were thirteen miles outside the new delivery zond. A check was enclosed for the balance of our subscription. I had my quiet time back!!!!!!
I’m overjoyed, Father.

But I also know You cared enough for my dilemma, … Marion
