Household: How to Look Well to Its Ways

Welcome to Day 25 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life! Yesterday, we made a gentle, intentional plan to be wise about what we fill our homes with. Less is more, remember? Today, we are going to simply have a day of reflection on what we’ve been working on so far this week: how we abide, pray, and create warmth in our homes. Settle into one of these ideas. Pray with today’s Scripture verse to discover how God wants to speak…

Today is Day 23 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life. As we continue our theme on home, I would like to reflect on how we pray within our homes … Welcoming God Into My Home In the quiet of the early morning, I tiptoe downstairs and make coffee. As it brews and I wake up, I gather my prayer book, Bible, journal, and favorite pen. I find a blanket to curl up underneath. With hot coffee in hand, I make…

Welcome to Week 4 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life. Only one more week left!

I like a neat and tidy home,…

Reminders: Oh, How We Need Them

Welcome to Day 20 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life! Today, we are going to remember all the ways the Lord reminds us of His love, mercy, peace, grace, and strength.

Press On: Remaining Faithful to the Good Things

Welcome to Day 18 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life. In our quest to refocus our attention on self-care or soul-care, let us spend a little time being present to the things that truly weigh us down … the things that are chronic … the things that are too big for us to handle alone. Let’s remember that we’re not alone! The Lord is with us! He fights for us, as we still our hearts and rest in His love….

Today is Day 16 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life, and I would like to continue refocusing our attention on what we do to take care of our bodies, minds, and spirits. Yesterday, we focused on sleep. As you recall in the first week, we entered into a spiritual rest in the Lord. In a way, these two types of rest go hand in hand. We need both. And when we enter fully into the rest we need, we are…
