Order · Spiritual Discipline

another kind of discipline…

When cleaning… laundry… creating order… become a spiritual discipline… they take the place of writing here…

Returning home to a disordered house… with groceries to put away… energy went toward restoring what had been displaced…

As I cleaned… put away… vacuumed… swept… steamed the floors… with loved ones winding down for the evening… the flesh tried to get stirred up…

But words from Matthew came to mind…

“…The greatest among you shall be your servant. …”

Matthew 23:11 ESV

His reminder moved me to practice… serving with joy… being great in His Kingdom… loving those I serve…

So yesterday… another kind discipline for the spirit… left it quiet here…

[Note… to those who come here regularly… I’m feeling free… to have my off day float… not knowing what day will be quiet here…

Free to follow Him… rather than a schedule…

As I’ve thought about the six days a week of writing here… while writing in other places increases… I feel I might be free from that call… but every time I think about not writing on a day… He presses with words…

So… we… will… see…]
