How is your spiritual health?
"Spiritual health is very similar to physical health -- it requires attention and effort." Intentional Faith by Alan Jackson
What are you doing to keep yourself or your family healthy spiritually? We must intentionally keep in God's Word, in fellowship with other believers, following the Holy Spirit and more!
I hope to do a miniseries on this subject.
The first is TODAY!
What are you intentionally doing today to grow closer with Jesus in your daily life?
I have always taught our girls that what you listen to and fill your heart and head with is important.
One of our daughters said today that her husband had noticed the boys were singing country songs as they went about their day. So what had they been listening to? Yep, country music! Her husband said, "We'd better get them back on track listening to Christian music and memorizing the Word!"
We get off track so easily. We must be INTENTIONAL in what we do and how we spend our time.
So today: make an effort to LISTEN to God's Word and good music. We have so much at hand today that we didn't before. In many ways the digital age is good and bad. Choose to use it for your good. Tune in to only Christian radio. We live in a rural area and can't do that so I have Sirus radio where I can listen to good music and Godly sermons. I know you can do the same with Alexa or Echo. These may cost us some money but the outcomes will be worth it.
Do whatever it takes to fill your hearts and minds with God's Word! Be strong and spiritually healthy!!
Have a good day!

Summer gets busy...haven't been able to blog for a bit. Took these pictures a month ago when I went out to help Gail and Austin with the intent to post here. Just getting around to it. It has been really dry. Our grass did not green up this spring.
Pretty ugly if you look down!!!!
SO... look around and look for some good. Keep your faith and trust in God. Remember there is a bigger picture and God has a wonderful plan for us.
8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 9The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
May His peace be with you today and always!! Millie
