Rhythms of Fall

School started today, soccer started last week.  I am so delighted.  There is something really soothing and exciting about the rhythms of fall.  When the kids went to school today, my house was quiet!  I cleaned the house and it stayed that way all day!!!

Spiritual disciplines do that for us.  They bring calmness and structure to our chaos.  Method and the methodical to our frenzy.  Spiritual disciplines are key in helping us to learn and grow in our relationship with God.

Exodus 33:13 says “If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you.”  The method and the methodical bring us to a place where our soul is open and peaceful, ready to listen and be taught.  Notice – the focus is on God teaching us, not on us doing the work.

What spiritual disciplines have you incorporated into your life this season?
