As I sit here listening to Lecrae, I wonder how country life will change me, my children, my relationships, my church, etc. We’ve officially been in this rural community for seventeen days. What a change from the center of Minneapolis. Certainly it has changed my family life already. We don’t have to rush off somewhere nearly as often. The nearest town is fifteen minutes away, twenty if we hit a deer. We sit down at the table for breakfast and don’t get up until devotions are done. That has been a blessed change in our lives. I’ve read posts, heard sermons, even have given my own testimony to the importance of devotions, yet often forget and let them get pushed out of our busy lives. I am reminded again to the importance of this task. I am easily angry and irritable, I grew up with this problem and it continues in my heart to this day. What a difference I see when we get into the word. I find myself enjoying more, praising more, being patient and thankful more. Don’t wait until you get out of the chaos of life to make devotions central to your life. Here’s what we’ve been going through this Easter week: Let Your Kingdom Come – Preparing your hearts for the King A post from Pastor Sam at Bethlehem.
