I feel like the past few months have been awesome. I have asked for and received wisdom, and it has been a milestone in my faith journey. Things have changed in my heart, mind, and life–somethings that only God and I will ever fully know. Incredible.
But I feel like the next season of life will be one of obedience. I have learned over the past few months that we spell “love” t-i-m-e and God spells “love” o-b-e-d-i-e-n-c-e, so I am moving into a new season. This will be a season of discipline and structure: in work, in play, in mind, in body, and in soul.
In work: I hope to have structure when I have a job. If God wills something else, I feel quite certain that my time will still involve much structure and self-discipline.
In play: I will make more intentional time to hangout and play with friends.
In body: I am working hard to lose a few pounds and continue an overall healthy lifestyle in working out and choosing wisely what I put into this temple of mine–I only have one 😉 . I want to honor God in my choices.
In soul: I have joined a new women’s bible study on Friday mornings and am loving it. Furthermore, I’m joining Beth Moore on her blog (with 3500 other women) in committing to memorizing 2 scriptures per month–24 total in 2009. I can’t wait. I haven’t been this intentional in my disciple time in a while; the time that I’ve had has been awesome, but different each day, lacking basic structure but abounding in creativity and wisdom. This will be a new time of structured quiet time and quiet self-discipline. I’m incredibly hopeful and excited about this next season of life and obedience to God–exploring what that means and how to live it out.
What new seasons are you all encountering?
how exciting lucy! thanks for sharing your experiences. how inspiring 🙂 i’m struggling with the obedience thing for God, too. I’m trying so hard to squeeze in daily scripture reading, bible studies, and christian fiction pleasure reading ON TOP of my academic readings that never end. it’s all about priorities at the end of the day! love you lucy!!!
