    The Seedbed Daily Wake-up Call, October 11, 2022

    I do not find myself in a place of duty and discipline with respect to the Word of God and my engagement (obedience). My delight is truly in the Word and I do meditate on it night and day, which does take discipline, but it is a joyful and rewarding experience. It wasn’t always this way, I was distracted by busyness with work and family. When I was not doing that I was caught up in church work (programs, activities and governance). I was also trying to weed my own garden through self management. I was deceived and asleep.

    It wasn’t until I was broken (burned out) that I surrendered and in simple humility started letting the Gardener weed my garden with His Word and Spirit through the daily practice of the spiritual disciplines and banded discipleship. Only then did I begin to flourish and prosper.
