In quiet time yesterday, God inspired a new initiative within me. I was thinking about Phil 4:8 and instead of just praying that I would stay focused all day, I literally entered what I need to work on into my schedule.
For me, it was loving my husband. I love him already but I can easily lack intentionality or have interactions that are more flesh-led than God-led.
My experience today was heartwarming and convicting. I realized just how much I let my flesh lead me instead of the Lord. It was refreshing to jump into scripture that related to something I’m working on–multiple times a day. It was great to allow scripture to be part of my schedule instead of something to squeeze in.
I think it’s great to partner with God to change your life and behavior. The reminders allow you to readjust your attitude if need be and ultimately continue to work of recalibrating your heart. We need effort and commitment in order to take on the heart of God.
Here is a great feel-good song to get you inspired:
