nourished on the words of the faith

It is so easy for me, when Matt is gone, the girls are testing all week, and the visiting film crew is coming today...and things are extra crazy...to miss out on the thing I need the very most.  After rushing everyone else off to school this morning, I took just a whole moment myself to sit and cling to His Word, which perfectly reminded me of this.

You will be a good servant of Christ Jesus,
constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine 
which you have been following.

We have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men.
Pay close attention to yourself and your teaching;
persever in these things.
1 Timothy 4

When I am constantly being nourished on the Word, I am able to be a good servant of Jesus....the one and only thing I truly desire above all else.  I'm not SUPPOSED to be able to be a good servant of Jesus in my home or ministry or mind when I'm NOT constantly being nourished by His Word, or when I am constantly nourishing myself on my own often poisonous thoughts and struggles and concerns and fears.

Be nourished today on His Word, fellow servants, fixing our hope not on things getting better, not on things getting done, not on when things might get easier, not on the words of the friends or the Facebook, not on when we might see light at the end of the tunnel...but fixing our hope on the Living God, who is the Savior.
My Savior.
