Day 21: Self-Feeding Disciples.  Today was not the most productive day when it comes to meeting this challenge.  Yesterday, I mentioned wanting to complete the SOAPS study in the morning, so my plan was to start that today, but I forgot that I had to be at work an hour early for a meeting.  Which when you have kiddos who need to get ready and go to daycare means quite the early morning, so it didn’t get finished.  I thought I would just complete it tonight.  I went to work where I participated in 6 IEP meetings (which may not mean a lot to everyone, but it is ALOT for one day).  Then right after work I met a friend to go to a sisterhood event that was put on by her church.  The event started at 7:00, so I thought I would have plenty of time after that.  Well, it is 11:20 and I literally just walked in my door, sat down, and began writing.  I did listen to the video as I drove home tonight so that I could be up to date on the self-feeding section that we are going to begin.  Tonight, I was thankful for 4G…

I am glad that there is a section on self-feeding in this training.  I feel that though I know the concepts of self-feeding, I still sometimes struggle to completely devote myself to it.  Many times I get busy and it seems like there are too many things competing for my attention to devote the time and energy into self feeding that I should.  However, I know there is great importance to that because as the video presented, Sunday morning shouldn’t be the place that you’re expecting to get fed.  Even if that was the purpose of Sunday morning worship, it wouldn’t be enough spiritual food to grow you and sustain you.  We must be in the word daily, worshiping daily, and spending time in prayer with our Creator.  That is how we maintain a close relationship with him.

    Nicole, bless your heart — your life IS busy. I’m beginning to think… if YOU can make this stuff happen, then nobody else has an excuse. : )
