We have had two manschool zoom calls and it was good to see those of you who participated. We will do more of these … but not every week and not this week. If you have feedback on those sessions, please comment below.
I am sensitive to your time and I feel very strongly from the LORD that unless I have something which I believe to be weighty and meaningful to bring you, then we’re not going to set up a call. I’m also sensitive to screen time – too much looking at these computers (which many of us are doing all day) is terrible for your soul.
In our last call, we talked about margin and how important margin is in our life. Margin is that space between the load your carry and your limits. For many of us, we’re carrying a far greater load than we have limit. So, we asked last week – 1) how will you recover your margin? and 2) how will you collect your attention (from being distracted in a thousand directions) and focus your affection on God?
Affection on God.
Adoring God. Loving Him. Sitting under His wings and marveling in His provision. Thanking Him for the astounding beauty we are experiencing in our weather as we get outside and bask in His provision. (do it now … it is going to be 94 degrees on Sunday)
I want to love God. I want to be in love with God. I want that Abba Father kind of relationship where I know, deep in my soul, that I am safe as a baby in His arms.
He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the quiet waters. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life (Psalm 23)
When I walk through a fire, I will not be burned (Isaiah 43:2)
The LORD will fight for you, you need only be still (Exodus 14:14)
I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. (Isaiah 46:4)
What are you doing to create margin/space so you can begin to build your affection for God?
A key resource for you to invest in that I’ve been waiting a long time for…
Morgan Snyder with Ransomed Heart has written his first book and it comes out in about 10 days. I strongly encourage you to get a copy and start digging through it. I think this has the potential to be every bit as important as Wild at Heart has been. Morgan is an exceptional man. He lives with an intention and a focus like no other man I know. I have a copy of the book and it is great. I’ve been under his teaching and instruction (as many of you have) for years. He has much to say and it is powerful. We’ll be showing the videos that accompany this and going through the material this fall at Manschool. But you’re going to want the book and you’re going to want to invest the time to plow through it with intention. You won’t be disappointed. Books are on sale now at Amazon.
