I hope your day started off on the right foot and that you are anticipating the fullness of God's love and blessings throughout this week!
Anne Voskamp reminds us that "Busy is a choice. Stress is a choice. Joy is a choice." So, "Choose well!" One of the ways we can "choose well" is by practicing the spiritual disciplines outlined in God's Word. Last week, Pastor Kevin spoke about the Discipline of Solitude which frees us from the hurrying, scurrying, and worrying so prevalent in our world today. This weekend Pastor Kevin and I talked about the Discipline of Submission which frees us from always having to get our own way. I am convinced that just by putting these two disciplines into practice on a daily basis will result in increased joyfulness and peace in our lives. Why not choose to implement these spiritual disciplines today and discover that the purpose of discipline is FREEDOM!
