D.E.A.T.H. is the design on one of my t-shirts. It stands for “doing everything according to Him.” I believe that simply following those words gives you the road map, a virtual guide, for your life. So many of your questions and dilemmas can be answered and solved with those few words.
I couldn’t resist a design illustrating those Words. It’s a shock at first glance, but D.E.A.T.H. is an inescapable truth.
Many times you might ask how you can hear the words meant just for you. The answer is simple: Be still, and be patient. The word – his Word – will come to you. The ability to hear the Word exists in all of us, but you must stop and listen. It is difficult to hear the Word through all the noise and chatter and the busyness of life. I emphasize that you must stop and be still for more than a few seconds. each day, not just when you have a specific problem. Problems may even be avoided if you adopt D.E.A.T.H.
It’s nothing radical, but it is sensible. It can be your source of power as you face the issues and challenges that arise before you.
Try it. I know how it has helped me, the many ways I have been blessed when I stopped and listened to the word and subsequently taken action based on the word.
Why not set aside a month of faithfully devoting at least five minutes of time each day to absolutely blocking out the rest of the world and being still so that you can open your heart to the Word of God. Hebrews 2:1 says, “Therefore we ought to give more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.”
Until next time, remember to continue to take steps of excellency and you will leave behind a trail of greatness.
