what I learned today

It is probably just my age, but all of a sudden I find myself terribly interested in learning more.

Today I took a small step by signing up for a 12 week course on creativity.  It sounds really interesting and practical.  It concentrates on a balanced focus between three areas of creative work,  passions/skills/experience.  The focus of week one was the development of practices = regular practice built into our lives increase the capacity to do great work and not get burned out.

I love practical teaching that transfers into my spiritual life as well.  I am looking forward to the evaluation of my work that this course encourages.  I want to learn, I want to work in an excellent way while remaining healthy with my family and my spiritual walk with Christ.  Very exciting.

Next, I decided I am very interested in taking a writing course of some kind (after Easter).  Do any of you educators out there have a suggestion?  I would prefer doing this on-line as opposed to attending a class.  It could be through a college or a reputable site of some kind.

After spending time investing in my 'work life' I went to the Word and read the most blessed things...

I John 1:14-18..."From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another." vs 16

I should be so full of joy based on these verses that my love for the Lord is overflowing.  All things can be found in Him!

John Piper says, "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him".

He offers himself and all that means to us, and yet time an time again we settle for what the world has to offer.  My prayer today is to intentionally pursue Him - to remain in Him, to be completely satisfied in Him!  How amazing His grace is to me!
