Praise God on this glorious day in this concrete jungle in New York. Life is in the habits, routines and grind of our lives. Oswald Chambers in "My Utmost for His Highest" speaks of how the disciplines of our lives help to carry us through between the moments when we feel closest to God. I am by no means comfortable in saying I am overtly disciplined, but will continue to make effort to pursue God's will in the small actions. The scripture Chambers spoke from was from the first chapter of 2nd Peter a bold chapter encouraging Christians to follow Christ in all ways.
