Hello and Happy Monday,
I hope all of you begin this new week fresh and full of faith.
I’m currently teaching a course with the Rocky Mountain School of Ministry and Theology on Jesus and Spiritual Formation. This week we explore the topics of surrender and worship. These topics go hand in hand. The more we learn surrender, the more we worship God with greater abandon. The more we pour out our hearts in praise and live worship on a daily basis, the more we recognize the greatness and majesty of God and submit our will to his will.
E’yen A. Gardner writes, “Everyday, we have to ask God for our assignment, we must not assume we understand His plan but rather surrender to His will daily.” (From Humbly Summiting to Change-The Wilderness Experience). This is an excellent practice to develop in life. Wake up every morning and ask, “Father, what is your will for me this day?”
I invite you to spend time this week praying prayers of surrender. “Father, you are the potter and I am the clay. Shape me as you will.”
I invite you this week to see worship as a daily lifestyle. Every day let’s give our lives as daily worship to the Father, Son, and Spirit.
This looks to be an exciting week of spiritual growth.
Grace and peace,
