00:00 START the timer!
Last night I finished reading "Tramp for the Lord" by Corrie Ten Boom. This book belonged to my Great Grandma though I'm not sure if she ever read it herself. I will have to ask the next time I stop by the nursing home.
Wow. What I learned from Corrie Ten Boom's writing!
This was one of my favorite quotes from the book:
"The life of a Christian is an education for higher service. No athlete complains when the training is hard. He thinks of the game, or the race." Corrie Ten BoomThe world is our classroom. We just need to be aware of what God is teaching us and be willing to learn each and every day! To grow to be more like Christ, we must have a humble, teachable spirit.
But what can God teach me while I spend my days with a 2.5 year old and 2.5 month old or while I'm out on a run?
Lately God has been telling me to TRUST Him. Quit trying to trust Him and just do it. Trust Him with my plans for the day. Trust Him with wisdom in parenting and marriage. Trust His Spirit to display fruit in my life.
Live boldly in faith and complete trust in His plans for my life.
05:00 STOP the timer!
This was another quote from the book that really spoke to me too. Added after the timer:
What lesson is God teaching you today?
