Business notes: I am still waiting for my phone… maybe tomorrow? Grace and I did Pilates today, and Blake was the critic this time. He was seriously impressed with the flexibility of the ladies in the video. Notice he was not seriously impressed with how flexible his mom was… but to be fair to myself, he said that most of the kids in his class can’t even touch their toes. That’s kinda odd, no?
Today I am thinking on Galatians 5, about what it means to be given the freedom of the Holy Spirit, and what it means to walk in it. My Bible says in Galatians 5:25 “Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” When I read this, I imagine a dance. Other versions simply say “walk in the Spirit,” but I like ‘keep in step with,’ because to me dancing requires much more communication than walking. Dancing requires you to be aware of where the leading partner wants to take you. I want to be fully aware of where the Spirit wants me to go. Who should I say hello to? What am I to say next? How should I spend my afternoon? The answer to questions like these can not be found in the Bible, but they can be found when I quiet my thoughts and ask Jesus what He wants to say to me at that moment. I have been practicing this a little, and have been pleased with how it’s going.
