Live Oak Lenten Blog - Week 4

So, I've hit the proverbial wall this week. Preparation for, and Spring Break itself, has thrown me off my schedule.

I am sad to say that for several days last week I shortened my time and for the past two days, I actually skipped my daily 30 with God.

Bad. Bad. Bad! In more ways than one.

I hate to set my alarm on vacation but its what I am going to have to do this week. God doesn't take time off from listening to us. I shouldn't take time off from talking to him.

When i finally got around to it, this was my scripture reading today:

Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that. (Ephesians 5:1, 2 MSG)

That seems a perfect way to start a new week.
