Strengthened To Obey (Thirty Days to Greater Fruitfulness, Day 3)

This blog has been temporarily overtaken by my Thirty Days To Greater Fruitfulness Challenge.  You can find out more by checking out the Introduction.

Nothing profound or fancy about today either. But, hey, this is a journey right?

The most significant thing about today was that I felt like I got some direction from the Lord yesterday about what to do with my night.  However, yesterday, I was sick as a dog and this morning I woke up the same way.  Working all day and then being obedient after work did not look fun, let alone possible.

The good news is that part way through the morning, I started feeling better.  It seems like the Lord was strengthening me to do what He called me to.  My contention is that this is a better way to live- dependent on Jesus and only able to do the things He gives us strength for.  I think He actually calls that abiding.

Anyways, that’s how my day went. How was yours?

Join us on the “Thirty Days to Greater Fruitfulness” experiment.  For the rest of September we are spending 30 minutes in silent prayer listening to Jesus and then acting on what He asks us to do.  Then we blog about the changes that are occurring in our lives through the marriage of listening and obedience.  It’s not too late.  If you’re just checking out that experiment feel free to jump in.  And if you want more information, you can check it out here.
