God has been really hammering me with two things lately: you’re a living sacrifice – be careful you haven’t crawled off the altar; and take every thought captive – if a thought enters your head make sure it has the right to stay there for reflection. Both remind me that my Christian life requires constant monitoring and diligence in order to keep myself in a place where God can use me whenever and however He want to use me. As a musician, I understand that practice and discipline are necessary to be ready to perform. That just makes sense. God is teaching me to apply this same mindset, practice and discipline, to my spiritual life.
