~Until God opens the next door, praise Him in the hallway~

I want this to be my first thought when....life happens.
How was your day today?
I had some great places
and a few horrible spaces
but it ended up very good.
I was at New Community at Central and Pastor Mike
(http://mikemccrary.blogspot.com) had us doing group discussions on 2 Peter 1:3-9.
I love how Peter gives us positive things we can do that will help us grow:
'5 Do your best to improve your faith. You can do this by adding goodness, understanding, 6 self-control, patience, devotion to God, 7 concern for others, and love. 8 If you keep growing in this way, it will show that what you know about our Lord Jesus Christ has made your lives useful and meaningful. '
So by adding
devotion to God,
concern for others
and love -
I grow as a Christian and as a real person.
These are all choices that I can make in any moment that happens in my day.
It is not some magical, ethereal experience that is out there on some higher spiritual plain but real nitty-gritty this is where the rubber hits the road kind of stuff.
The kind of stuff I can put my teeth into, grab on and run with. The kind of stuff that makes my real life and every relationship I have better.
I like this.
