This past weekend, I took Colossians 4:2 to heart: "Devote yourselves to prayer..." I want to devote myself to praying, making this the focus of my energy and my anticipation.
I also find that I've been much happier and peaceful when I spend time soaking in the sunshine of the word of God. It has a way of cramming out the worries and tensions of my heart and replacing them with good thoughts and good feelings. After enjoying a really pleasant weekend in the word and in worship, I feel eager to continue feeding on the Bible.
I want to simplify my life and fill it with beneficial, blessed things. I want to devote myself to prayer and the word, living powerfully in that simplicity.
Here are some more comprehensive notes and reflections on the pursuit of a "holy" life. ( environment, activity, and implementationCollapse )
