How Do You Grow In More Than One Area At A Time?

. at . 2 comments

Even though I really want to set aside time for these three areas, I am still neglectful of slowing down long enough to significantly challenge my life, mind and heart.

Life has been very busy, but these are the times I really need to slow down for meditation, confession, deeper prayer and purposeful living/giving.

I wonder if I am expecting too much, too fast, too soon? Maybe it would be sufficient and even OK if I put aside only 10 minutes for one area.

If that’s all I concentrated on this Lent, it’s farther than I would have been if I’d kept up with my usual pace.

So tonight I will have a 10 minute prayer/Bible reading/listening time with God to see if I see this differently afterwards.

How do you all handle growing deeper in more than one area at a time?

    If you figure out how this works let me know. I am still at the point where God is working in me and everything becomes overwhelming (sometimes in good ways, not always bad) and when I can’t keep the ball rolling, I come to a standstill!

    Theresa,

    We can be sisters traveling along the same path.

    Maybe it’s in the standstill that we hear the quiet voice of God?
    That happened to me yesterday when I was desperate about finding my articles.
