What a week!
Whew. I'm glad it is Friday.
After an exciting, tiring, kinda weird, doubt filled, and full week - I sat down this morning to read The Word.
What I read just quenched my parched soul.....
...make every effort to respond to God's promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone. (2 Peter 1:5-7)
Just like my daily vitamin supplements my sometimes less than stellar diet - moral excellence, knowledge, self-control, patient endurance, godliness, brotherly (and sisterly!) affection, and love for everyone - supplement my sometimes struggling faith.
I'm asking myself some questions this morning. What IS moral excellence? How am I gaining it? What's self-control? Have I been demonstrating that lately? What does patient endurance look like? Have I been modeling that? And godliness. How am I living under THAT hefty term? Then there is love. Am I loving on everyone in my life?
My heart is just soaking all that in today. Just wanted you to know :)
