spiritual discipline

Short update:

I've been in Louisville for a month now. Overall it's been pretty great. My church is great, my work is great, the people that I've met in both places are really great.

It's an interesting life to be working full-time, having my own place, basically being in complete control of everything I do on a day-to-day basis. I'm learning a lot about disciplining myself in basic responsibilities. Healthy eating, consistent exercise, time management, finance management, etc.

But my spiritual discipline seems to be lacking. It's something that I really want to develop and I'm praying that God teaches me how to chase after Him in every avenue of my life. My church has been going through a series on Rest. They've been talking a lot of resting in the Lord, and it's something that I'm going to try to implement. Daily rest (devotional time), weekly rest (Sabbath), monthly rest (day of reflection), and even annual rest (retreat from the world).

Please pray that my pursuit of God is and stays more important than anything else I do here in Louisville.

P.S. Wouldn't this be an awesome place to rest?
