This is one of those posts where I have to give thought to how this word can be a fire starter in my mind. We all strive to keep our selves, souls and spirit out of the path of being called irrelevant. The dictionary writes that the word means “Not pertinent or to the point.” When I find that I have let issues invade my purpose and position, I feel irrelevant. When I think of how easy it is to get off track, I ask for restoration and relevance to reclaim my position, peace and joy.
Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.

I find myself looking for words in the Word that will bless me to overcome situations that seem to box my soul and spirit in a tight fitting place. I have found that when I surround my setting with meaningful and positive devotionals and books , I do overcome episodes of extreme sadness and hopelessness with skies filled with joy. The scripture which I find best conveys my delight and desires is one that I copied to my last devotional. I read these words for joy to overcome:
Psalm 128:1 “Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways”
Why is the experience of education a life process and activity of quality living? I started my day with scripture reading for direction of my self, soul, and spirit. I am focusing this month on the Fruit of the Spirit: Self- Control. Education benefits my whole being by letting my action be the leader and reaction comes after considering the source. The joy of finding new places to learn is a benefit to me. I stepped through several doors recently and I heard words of encouragement as well as education. The answer to the questions is showing self-control in everything.
