Every time I think about Lisa I get the biggest smile across my face. And then I read this post from Melissa too and it just makes me grin too! Making small changes can make such a big difference!
I love that Melissa talks about God's work in all this. God is the God of order (as my mom is wont to say) and as we put things in order we reflect his character too.
I think Lisa and I are going to tackle the topic of quiet time next. More than anything else, the discipline of spending time alone with God each and every day has changed my heart, grown my faith, and made the biggest difference in my life.
If you do nothing else to simplify your life, nothing else to create order in your home, do this one thing. I believe it will change everything else--because it will change you.
I suppose we should have tackled this one first. Oh well. But part of me was waiting for Misplacing God to release--because that's what this book is all about.
So how do we even start?
If you've grown up in the church, or been around the church for very long, my guess is that you've tried some things in the past.
- What have you done in the past?
- What worked?
- What failed miserably?
- What are your biggest challenges to quiet time?
- What questions do you have about it?
