Walk With Him Wednesdays

So, this is another idea from Ann Voskamp that I'm hoping to use. I realized this morning as I tried to think of those spiritual disciplines that I cultivate in my life that there just aren't that many. I wonder why my spiritual life seems dry, but the fact is that I'm not watering it very much. It's not that there is nothing that I do to deepen my relationship with God. It just seems to be that I do as little as possible. I'm like Katie trying to do just enough to not get into trouble. But we've both missed the spirit and the intention of family, of relationship.
I'm hoping that by beginning this intentional gratitude exercise my heart will begin to be tuned in the direction of focusing on the God who so wants to be a part of my life. More than that, to be my life. I'm excited to post next Monday's thanksgiving list already, so I can't wait to see what will happen even further down the road. Pray for me, and for yourself, that God would begin to stir our hearts to be close or closer to Him.

  1. Intentional gratitude is a hard one more me if nothing else because of the time it takes to jot things down. But then, if I don't jot them down, I don't think about it. I guess that's why it's a journey. Nice to "meet" you!

  2. "Intentional gratitude" - a good exercise for all of us. So I will take your suggestion: I am praying for you, for me, and your readers today. May we all find multitudes of reasons to give God praise, beginning with your blog post! Blessings.

  3. Closer to Him, an intimacy that draws us into the most jealous love story of all time. A King madly in love with His children.

    A delight to be wrapped in His love with you today,
    Sarah Dawn
