I praise God for each one of you - for your presence in my life!
I praise God for the work He is doing in you! I am so encourage by how God is working in you through the things He is teaching me - about grace planning - about how to spend our days - about asking the hard questions!
My prayer is that these thing will encourage you to savor Christ - to rest in Him.
God has been using Ann Voskamp in my life to show me the importance of STRUCTURING A DAY. Miss Leann & I were talking about this recently. How we desire to teach our future children (if God wills) the importance of this subject. This lesson is sooo new, soooo foreign to me. It's like blinders have been lifted off my eyes (& my heart).
AND WHY IS learning THIS SOO IMPORTANT?
Because HE IS THE VINE & WE ARE THE BRANCHES.
Because WITHOUT HIM we can do NOTHING. (see John 15)
It's ALLL about abiding in Him. We are to abide in Him. DAILY. And this takes learning NEW HABITS. This takes planning. THIS TAKES TIME. this takes intention & EFFORT.
My desire, is that we walk together in this!
how are we going to be stewards of that time? How are we going to utilize our time & resources in the BEST way? The most effective way for HIS KINGDOM?
I came across these questions posted on David Platt's church. http://www.brookhills.org/contribute/Pesonal_Disciple_Making_Plan_FINAL.pdf
Please, please, please take a read.
My desire is to answer these questions. at some point for they are worth the time.
Would anyone be willing to answer these with me? (And get ready for they will change your life!)
also please take a look at this book: http://www.amazon.com/Who-Do-You-Think-Are/dp/1400203856/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1390017041&sr=1-1&keywords=who+do+you+think+you+are
I don't know about YOU but I struggle with finding my identity in Christ. It seems like every issue I have can be traced back to this battle. I have started to read this book & its rocking my world.
If you would like to read along with me...let me know...would love to do this together!
And with THAT. I would LOVE to memorize Ephesians. Anyone with me???
WOULD LOVE TO HEAR HOW YOU ARE ABIDING IN HIM!!
Grace & Peace,
