This morning we’re hosting a yard sale, and I can’t tell you how giddy it makes me feel that we will be clearing our closets of excess stuff. It also has made me a bit disgusted over how much excess there is. Weeding out is healthy and necessary and my house will breathe a little easier tonight, I think.
The same is true for our souls. Sitting in a few quiet moments, going for a run, and even reading words from other writers, allows this to happen for me. It’s in those disciplines that I’m able to pray my thoughts to the Lord, turning over my anxiety, frustrations, questions, and doubts to God. The space that this provides is amazing and empowers me to live more fully.
May we take advantage of the moments we are given today, this weekend, to breathe a little easier in our souls.
Here are some inspiring reads for your weekend:
Family Worship 101, put out by Crossway – A new book by Donald Whitney, and a little trailer to promote it.
Happy Weekend, friends!
