Peace family, it’s a fresh, new month, the beginning of the second quarter of the year, and a great time to look at our lives and reassess.
A devotional I’m reading challenged me to ask myself, “Am I living my life according to God’s standard? Am I caring only about His approval?”
It can be so easy to get swept up and feel like we have to do so many things for everyone, including God. Are we doing them because God told us to, or are we trying to earn approval? Is God really what we care about most?
It’s also pretty easy to let our hearts get hardened to our pet sins. What starts out as a choice becomes a habit, and we can fall into doing what’s comfortable instead of doing what God calls us to do.
Peace family, where do you stand today? Are there areas of your heart that need to be reexamined and relinquished? Is there anything you are believing about God that is not true?
Here’s reminder to embrace the love that God has for you, remind yourself of His character, and to start this next part of the year with a clean slate!
