The discipline is defined by its fruit, she said. A spiritual practice is anything that brings you closer to God.
Later, I’m getting ready for our small group, which meets at our house every other week. We’ve been going through the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan and I love my peeps but my house is a wreck and there is sweeping and mopping and dusting to do. When we started this thing we agreed we wouldn’t go crazy on the hospitality. It’s all about Jesus, we said. And they promised grace. And I know this is true, but still, Lucy is shedding like its summer and the toilets need cleaned.
It’s been a busy week with Jeff’s dad’s surgery and me trying to get ready for a trip and there are so many things that still need doing but as I make my way across the kitchen floor I realize that I don’t mind this at all. Housework is not my favorite thing but I’m listening to Matt Kearney and humming along and I find that I can’t wait to see my friends.
Mopping the floor is such a sweet, sweet thing. When Love is my help mate.
How about you? How do you embrace the God-joy? Every Monday I’ll be sharing one of my Playdates with God. I would love to hear about yours. It can be anything: outside, quiet time. Maybe it’s solitary. Maybe it’s loud and crowded. Just find Him. Be with Him. And come tell us about it.
