Hope everyone had a great weekend, and that you are braving the cold. This is my houseplant that I have had for over 10 years. It never gets too big because I haven't allowed it to. I want it to stay this size because it is easier for me to have it this way.

Sometimes I think about repotting it, but there are always more important things to do. I hope that I don't think this way about my relationship with God. Do I have more important things to do than to grow in the Lord? This is a daunting question. No, I don't think so!

I want to grow in God, and I put Him first everyday, but sometimes it takes just a little bit more prayer and studying the word to get to another understanding of His grace and truth in our lives. This doesn't have to take time out of our busy schedules, it can be as simple as carrying cards with pertinent scriptures on them to read when we have a moment.

Sometimes I will take a prayer break in the middle of all the activity by closing my eyes for a few seconds and checking in with God. This helps me to remember that I am centered in Him, and that He is closer than I could ever imagine, because He lives inside me. {I don't recommend that you try this while driving!}

My life is hid in Christ, but that doesn't mean that I am not heard or able to influence. My influence because I am in Christ is much broader and more impactful than ever before. Even in the mix of adult children living in my home!
