Five important lessons that I’ve learned from my walk with the Lord:
- Impatience will slow your progress. It demonstrates a lack of wisdom and faith.
- Trying to take shortcuts will hinder your journey. It demonstrates independence from the Lord.
- Allowing worldliness to remain in your life will subtract from a meaningful relationship with Jesus.
- Inconsistent intimacy with Jesus equals little to no anointing for ministry.
- Salvation is two part: He already did His part and we are instructed to do ours, to live as though we are saved. Philippians 2:12; 2 Cor. 7:1
I’m remaking the Ignite School of Ministry website, a project that I complete in increments due to repetitive motion injuries to both hands. I stepped away from the computer for a short break. When I returned, look who I found in my chair.
Max always has “important” input. He wants whatever I’m doing to include fun. I know this by a certain sparkle in his eyes and by the way he perks up his ears. Several times a day, Max tells me “play, play, play!”
My baby doberman reminds me that our Heavenly Father wants us to live today while we keep our eyes on the goal ahead of us.
From Max, I’ve learned the following:
- Find joy in little things. Even something as unimpressive as a slipper can turn into a game of “Stop Thief!”
- Welcome friends and family with enthusiasm and heart, they’ll know that they’re loved.
- Motivate yourself to learn with treats (healthy of course).
- Don’t work so hard. Play! Play! Play!
Wishing you joy in your journey,
