that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. - Ephesians 3:15-19

We are to be rooted and grounded in love.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. - 1 John 4:18

Today, recite these verses as you sit up straight and tall. Place your feet flat on the floor and relax your shoulders. Feel the floor under your feet as you breathe in and repeat these soothing truths.

 

Sweet Lord, help us as we seek to be grounded and rooted in true love... Your love. In Jesus' Name, Amen...

Seek First Project: The Race (Day 96)

I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. - Philippians 3:14

Our Christian life is often compared to a race. But I have to admit, sometimes it feels like running in place, especially when the troubled times seem to stretch on and on.

Am I the only one?

Sometimes the longer the problems go on, the more pressure we feel to "fix it". We worry and mull and stress and do and do and do and do. I think that's probably why Jesus said this:
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? - Matthew 6:27

Today I'm doing an activity that I know will remind me that slow is better. I want to be reminded to press in. And I want to preserve the beautiful things about my life.

I'm making a portable flower press and putting it to use today. If you'd like to, here is the site with the directions.

We can trust God's timing, even when the race doesn't feel like a race.

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. - Romans 8:28

 

God, I pray that today we will all feel the peace of knowing that You can use roadblocks, sidelines and detours to fulfill Your plan for us. In Jesus' Name, Amen...
