Attitude Check

This was my epiphany over the weekend. Well, also a phone call from my mom reminding me that, “God is in control of everything…except your attitude.”

I’m genuinely embarrassed by how rattled I got by all this stupid EFMP stuff. There was a time when speed bumps like this wouldn’t throw me into a total tailspin. While I think I can share the blame with a few mitigating factors, the biggest thing is I was forced to face up how lazy I’ve been spiritually in the last year. Thanks to the She Reads Truth app, I’ve been more diligent in my Bible readings, and I have actually memorized about 5 verses this year, which is more than last year already.

But as far as genuine spiritual discipline that leads to growth, I’ve been slacking. And it all came bubbling up.

I am looking forward to moving again and having a new opportunity to be a part of some Bible study groups and small groups for myself and for couples. I have renewed motivations to pick my prayer journal back up.

New motivation. It’ a good thing.
