SUMMER BIBLE STUDY - WEEK 1 DAY 4

...I was amazed to learn that butterflies have to spread their wings in the morning sunshine because the scales on their wings are actually solar cells. With out that source of energy, they cannot fly.
Laurie Beth Jones

When we feel unglued, and thangs don't hang together very well we feel that all our energy is draining away and we're unable to contain it.

With out some boundaries it is difficult to establish and stay on a spiritual path. Often little time is left over for our inner selves.

If a cup did not have boundaries on the sides and bottom , it could not hold anything. If we don't have boundaries we can't spread our wings and receive God's energy.

Today take time to think about your spiritual boundaries.

Scripture

Matthew 14:22-27

And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone...


Too often, I get carried away with the worries and work of the day. Too often I forget that if I leave the burden of the worry with our dear Lord, He'll take care of what I could not possible do. I spend some time with the 'Word' at the beginning and end of each day. I listen to Christain radio and keep studying and reading. I feel that I'm not ever going to be old enough not to learn more.

Dear God, Grant to me the vision to see what may need to be changed and the courage to take a stand for my own time and space. May the quiet time
I spend with you enrich the rest of my day so that I am able to
find you in every part of it.


Today I will set boundaries to protect my time with God.

'On Ya' - ma
