I haven't had a great 15 days in my strive for diligence. I have been sick for most of those days, so haven't felt like doing much of anything. Bronchitis is NOT fun!
Some Diligence updates:
1. Bible Study/Quiet Time - I have had the most success here. Reading is about the only thing I have felt up to doing, and I have enjoyed it!
2. My Health - Sunday night I started Made to Crave by Lysa TerKurst, so I'm working on 2 days of good health, before this week - ugh!
3. My house - Just barely keeping up with the clutter :( (But that will improve)
What I have learned most - What I want/feel the need to be diligent about is not necessarily what God wants for me. I had all of these grand plans to master this thing. God had different plans. With all the laying around, I read a lot of scripture & devotionals, and watched a message by Charles Stanley. This was my first time hearing him. He preached on prayer. My bible reading has been in Psalms, and the verses I have read all seemed to point to prayer. My first time back to church when I was well the message was - about prayer.
I talk to God throughout the day while going about my daily business, but I realized that I don't really spend time on my knees focused only on talking to God. Maybe God was slowing me down and showing me that before I can be diligent in the other areas of my life, I need to show more diligence talking with my Father.
I'm looking forward to coming weeks!
