This week engage in whatever soul-training exercises nourish your spirit, but do so with an attitude of gratitude–for these practices that connect you to God but also that God, in his grace, is sustaining you. – pg. 52, Hidden in Christ, James Bryan Smith
Jim’s recommendation for this week is simple but profound. Take whatever it is that helps you connect with God. Do it. Thank God for both that spiritual exercise and God’s provision through it.
Gratitude is a discipline and one that is easily overlooked as we reach for more. Perhaps thanking God for the means of grace (those profound and sometimes small ways he reaches us) will generate even more opportunities to spend time in the presence of God.
