“I saw more clearly than ever that the first great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day was to have my soul happy in the Lord. The first thing to be concerned about was not how much I might serve the Lord but how I might get my soul into a happy state, and how the inner life might be nourished.”George Müller
“You have been called to give yourself to the work of God’s kingdom and to daily obey the commands of the King. You’ve been called to recognize that your life is no longer your own because you were bought with a price. But the work you do is never to be done in order to earn something. The work you’re called to do is to be done in celebration of something. You don’t work to earn God’s favor; rather, your work is a hymn of thanks for the favor that Christ achieved on your behalf. You don’t have to wonder if you’ve worked enough. You don’t have to fear that you’ll mess up and get booted out of the family. You don’t have to fear seeing the back of God’s head. You don’t have to be haunted by the question of whether you’ve done enough for long enough. The bridge of impossibility has been walked by Christ. The job is done. Your relationship with God is eternally secure. Now, in thankfulness, go out and do his work.” Paul David Tripp
Are there any words particularly inspiring you toward Jesus lately?
I am a sucker for a lovely art print or book or desktop wallpaper. True sucker.
What used to be Naptime Diaries is now All Good Things Co. Sweet women striving to share the message of Jesus and hope with the world through beautiful artwork and inspirational prints.
Last year I purchased a few of their Advent resources and greatly enjoyed them. They recently shared the Advent 2017 Collection. Devotionals, banners, prints, and more.
I am really digging the theme of this year’s resources: do less. make it mean more.
How freeing and inspirational does that sound? Doesn’t it make you crave simplicity? Doesn’t it strengthen you to be more intentional with your choices as holiday months approach?
Yes. Yes. Yes. Help us, Lord.
I’m curious… do you and your family celebrate Advent? How? What works for you or your crowd?
Daring to Hope Audiobook, Katie Davis Majors
This is my first book of Katie’s, and I’m excited to start.
Lisa was a refreshing personality to hear from. I have heard of her book I Want God, but don’t know much about it. I enjoyed hearing her story and why she is as passionate as she is.
I’m late to this party, but am enjoying it! Starbucks, Toms, Clif, etc.
Topics like: mindfulness, communication, presence, ethical fashion, etc.
