These are all nice little catch phrases for a simple but a necessary community in my Christian faith. It all came to a head when I was off on a little "spiritual retreat" last month. I enjoyed the non-cooking, non-cleaning, non-demanding schedule of errands and parenting. It was just James and I in a small but quaint cabin while he went off teaching. I spent the majority of the day listening to music, praying silently, times of confession, digging into God's Word, journaling and other spiritual disciplines. I took a break to do some winter trail running. Practically perfect in EVERY WAY!
Well, it is easy to live the Christian life in a cabin in the woods. But, reality hit like a cast iron pan when I came home. My wonderful little blessings can drive me straight to MY HEAVENLY Father's feet. I need Him and His strength to deal with the not so nice areas in my life.
|blessed are the feet of those who bring GOOD NEWS|
My Challenge to you, if you are not in a group of believers GET IN ONE!
