The Power of Getting Organized for God!

If you are like me, you go to work, you care for family and do the ordinary activities of daily life. To find God, we have to be intentional. In the spiritual life, we don’t want to just wing it and give God the left overs of our lives. He wants to be center stage and frankly, we feel best when we order our lives around God. There is a part of us that is “restless until it rests in God” as St. Augustine writes.

Servant of God, Elisabeth Leseur formulate flexible daily goals, weekly goals and a monthly practice of a day of reflection. For example, without leaving her bedroom, she picked a day each month to slow down, to pray more and to reflect on her relationship with God and his guidance. In this way, step by step, Elisabeth became a master at radiating Christ to others without speaking directly about him, while she quietly offered the suffering they may have caused for their very conversion.

Think about your own way of relating to others. Are you a blessing to others in the way of Elisabeth Leseur, or could you begin to be today~ To learn more about how to take this the next step further, join us for facebook live using my book, Awakening a Life-giving Heart, Wednesday evening, 7 PM, CST through February 7. ~ Mary Kaufmann, Director of Incarnate Institute.
