Imagine there's a drawing for a great prize, one you'd really like to win. (As I'm sitting here in Michigan with snow blowing by my window in double-digit below-zero temperatures, I'm thinking Maui would fit the bill.)

But I digress. (Anyone else have a hard time scrolling away from that?)

Back to the drawing. (Sorry, no trip to Maui to give away. I did say IMAGINE.)

If you're really serious about winning, how many entries would you put in? 

As many as possible, right?

Common sense tells us that the more times you enter, the better your chances of winning. But did you know that principle holds true for other aspects of our lives as well? It's been proven that your chances for success in any endeavor increases with each additional angle you address it from.

My recent posts have featured methods to help establish a routine when it comes to spending time with God. While each of these suggestions in and of themselves will aid you in reaching this goal, the odds of your success increase with each additional method you are able to implement. Here's a summary:

1. Ask the Holy Spirit for help. This is NOT optional!

2. Prepare yourself by answering the proper questions.

3. Put past failures behind you and overcome obstacles.  

4. Implement small changes to help you defeat distractions

5. Create an environment that will set you up to succeed.

6. Make reminders so the invisible becomes visible.

7. Enlist others to join you so you can be influenced by positive peer pressure.


Now, I'm not suggesting that everyone should attempt everything at once. The goal here is not to get overwhelmed and quit out of frustration. What I'm saying is that these are all methods that work, and the more of them you're able to incorporate into your routine, the better your chances of sticking with it. Who knows, you may even be encouraged to find you're already doing some of these things!


Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. ~ Psalm 119:105

Remember, Bible study, meditation and prayer are all spiritual disciplines, and they're called "disciplines" precisely because they don't come easily and, quite honestly, aren't something we'd choose to do if we're acting in our own strength. Lucky for us, as followers of Christ we don't have to do anything under our own strength - nor should we! That's why it's so important to always start any undertaking by asking the Holy Spirit for guidance. 

Here's an opportunity to put what you're learning into practice. I'm embarking on a journey reading through the Bible and I'd love to have you join me! Now before you start thinking, "Oh sure, easy for her to say, she probably does this all the time," let me tell you that, while I have read through the Bible before, I've never actually completed a plan on schedule. So you see, we're all in the same boat!


This Bible reading plan is called "From Garden to City" and comes from National Community Church where Mark Batterson is the pastor. I've found I'm much more consistent reading the Bible when I'm following a plan, maybe you will be too!

This plan follows the church calendar, so if you are experienced in reading through the Bible you may find this plan to be a refreshing change. Also, the plan spans 13 months rather than the one-year plans you usually find. While it's easy to get overwhelmed thinking about committing to anything for that long, I choose to think maybe I'll be more successful with a little less to read each day. There are even sermons online that go along with each week's readings for those who'd like a little more in-depth teaching.

The reading plan starts on February 17, giving you time to wrap up loose ends before we get started. I have a Facebook group set up so we can "chat" about what we're reading, and if you live around Grand Rapids I'm hoping to have some opportunities to meet and discuss it in person as well. If you're interested in joining me, please let me know so we can support one another. 

Father, we are so thankful for the gift of Your Word! Empower us by the power of Your Spirit and give us the desire and the discipline we need to set aside time to be with You. I know you will not leave us unchanged, and I praise you for that!

Here she put her shoes on "all by my self!"
Isn't it funny how our memory works? Most thoughts of day-to-day happenings fall by the wayside, but then there's that arbitrary memory that we can recall in great detail. One of those random, vivid memories for me dates back to when my daughter was two. We went with my mother to a craft show at the country church she attended growing up. Evidently it was quite a happening because we had to park some distance away. As we walked my daughter displayed her self-sufficiency as only a two-year-old can. Refusing to hold our hands as we made our way to the entrance, arms folded across her chest, she defiantly (and repeatedly) chanted "All by my self! I'll do it all by my self!"


Unfortunately some of us never grow out of that attitude of independence, which is sad because the truth is, we were created for community. So why is it that we so often try to go it alone? Could it be the "Lone Ranger" mentality of our society has become ingrained in us? Or perhaps we think asking for help is a sign of weakness. Maybe pride is what is keeping us from showing others than we're anything less than perfect.

Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their efforts. For if either falls, his companion can lift him up; but pity the one who falls without another to lift him up. Also, if two lie down together, they can keep warm; but how can one person alone keep warm?  And if someone overpowers one person, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not easily broken. ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

For most of us, we are far more influenced by those around us than we'd care to admit. We generally think of this in a negative way, but we can also surround ourselves with people that will influence us in a positive way. In fact, studies show that we're most likely to succeed when we have support from others.* As we continue to search for ways to set ourselves up for success when it comes to spending time in God's Word, we can't overlook the power of a group.

Over the years I've followed different Bible reading plans, and while I have finished them all eventually, I've never finished one on schedule. I'm wondering if one of the reasons for this is because I've always attempted to do it on my own. It's easy to get sidetracked when there's no one to hold you accountable.



Thanks to the internet, I've discovered a new Bible reading plan. It's called "From Garden to City" and comes from National Community Church where Mark Batterson is the pastor. There are several reasons why I'd like to try it.

  - I'm much more consistent reading the Bible when I'm following a plan.

  - This plan is in a different order than others I've done previously.
    (It follows the church calendar.)

  - The plan spans 13 months rather than just a year.
    (Maybe I'll be more successful with a little less to read each day.)

  - I've found sermons to go along with each week's readings.

  - This time I'm not attempting to go it alone!

And that's where you come in! Will you join me in reading through the Bible in the next 13 months? Friends, I have to tell you I'm putting myself out on a limb here because I honestly don't know if I'll succeed in this undertaking, but I know I have a better chance at sticking with it if I'm not going it alone. 

The plan actually starts on February 17, giving you time to wrap up loose ends before we get started. I have a Facebook group set up so we can "chat" about what we're reading, and if you live around Grand Rapids I'm hoping to have some opportunities to meet and discuss it person as well. If you're interested in joining us, please let me know so we can support one another. 

I absolutely love God's timing! I just read this this morning and would like to close with this thought from Cynthia Heald, taken from A Woman's Journey to the Heart of God: "God created us all be be a part of His body. We function together. Fellowship is a precious gift the Lord gives His children. To neglect fellowship or refuse to draw near those who can make our journey all that it should be is to make ourselves vulnerable to compromise...If we are committed to travel toward the heart of God, then we need to move toward the wise friend, of any age, who can help us stay on the journey."

Father, I am so humbled to think that you look forward to our time together even more than I do. Thank you for developing in me a great desire to spend time with you and help me to encourage those who have not reached this place to know that it is within their grasp. Thank you for community, and for those you've already chosen to travel this path with me.

Recently Dude and his Mama came over to make cookies. Of course being 2 1/2 years old, Dude quickly lost interest in baking and moved on to plan "B" - watching a Veggie Tales DVD. 



Even though we were in the other room we could hear him laughing, clapping and talking as he interacted with the video, which is why I was surprised when I actually entered the room to check on him and saw this on the TV screen:




All that time, he thought he was watching the movie but in reality he was just looking at the menu screen!  Dude thought he was experiencing the main event but was really just viewing a very small sample of what was to come.

I think many of us go through life this way without ever realizing it. 

We think we're living a life of faith but we're really just going through the motions. We go to church on Sundays, maybe we even attend a class mid-week and we feel we've "done our duty." We may have seen God act in answer to a prayer or experienced His protection but if we're not consistently spending time with Him every day we are missing the main event.

Believe me, I know, because for many years this was me.

The truth is, you don't know what you don't know. Maybe you're a new Christian and no one has told you how important reading the Bible is to your spiritual life. Or perhaps you've been going to church for as long as you can remember and you were told all your spiritual needs can be met within those four walls. 

Or maybe you do know...

Is reading the Bible something you know you should do, but for whatever reason you don't? Don't be deceived! God has so much more for you, but in order to experience it you have to move off the menu screen and get into His Word!

Set yourself up for success!

Did you know that the space around us and the things that occupy it impact our behavior profoundly?* This isn't something we normally think about and even if we do, we rarely know what to do about it. Can you think of anything you could do to make your surroundings more conducive to spending time in God's Word? Here are some ideas I've come up with:

 - Find a quiet place with minimal distractions. Is your location more conducive to solitude or conversation? For me this means I need to stay out of the kitchen and away from any electronic devices.

  - Choose a comfortable place to sit. Do you like to be seated at a table or desk, or would you rather be curled up in a chair? How about having the best of both worlds and curling up in a chair with a lap desk?


 - Consider climate. In the summer I like to be in the sunroom, but since I'm now using that room as a spare refrigerator (I live in Michigan) I needed to relocate.

  - Keep everything you need handy. Of course you'll need your Bible, but it's also nice to have a pencil and notebook on hand so you can write any new insights, pose a question you have or even jot down that thing you just remembered you need from the store so you can get your mind back to the task at hand. I have a basket next to my chair where I keep these things, along with the devotional I'm reading and a book of Bible maps. This is especially handy if you can't always be in the same place - at least you can keep your "study stuff" together and easily portable.


Make the invisible visible.

We often engage in activities out of habit or proximity. Do you turn on the TV or start up the computer for a purpose, or just out of habit? Make it easy for yourself to make the right choices. 

  - Make an appointment with God. If you use a calendar or day planner, literally block out time to spend with God. Choosing the same time every day will help you to be consistent. 

  - Give yourself visual reminders to go to God first at the moment you make a choice - perhaps a note on the screen or keyboard reminding you to "Seek first the kingdom of God ~ Matthew 6:33.



Or place your Bible on top of your morning coffee cup the night before so you can charge up physically and spiritually.  Act out of awareness, not impulse. 

  - Scripture itself can be your reminder. Lay your Bible on the counter open to your passage for the day and read it each time you pass by. This was especially helpful for me when my children were young and I was only able to snatch a few minutes here and there.


How can you set yourself up succeed in the goal of spending time with the Lord daily? 


Side note: If you think you're not influenced by what you watch or listen to consider this: after viewing the movie, when Dude was asked to do something his response was, "No, I'm a pirate. I don't do anything." 

The moral of the story?

Don't be a pirate - do something!

Tips for Tuesday

I have loved books for as long as I can remember, but unfortunately I have far more books to read than time to read them.  Which is why it's not often that I am able read a book a friend has recommended. I'm so thankful this time was the exception to the rule and I was able to follow through and read the book - it's one you won't want to miss!

"I Dared to Call Him Father - The Miraculous Story of a Muslim Woman's Encounter with God" by Bilquis Sheikh and Richard H. Schneider. It was first published back in 1978, but still I was able to locate a copy at the local public library. This book was one of the rare few that was not only very moving and informative but also an easy read.



When we're introduced to Bilquis she is a Muslim but her attitude is "God has forgotten about me and I have forgotten about God." Little does she know, the One True God is about to change all that!  

After being shaken by some unsettling spiritual experiences, Bilquis turned to the Quran for comfort but only found "directives for how to live and warnings about other beliefs." Having never read the Quran myself, I was surprised to learn that it contains "many references to Jewish and Christian writings that preceded it." She began to have a nagging thought that she should read the Bible and finally surreptitiously went about obtaining one.

She began reading the Bible and immediately felt God speaking to her. She was puzzled because the two books were contradictory and she knew they could not both be true. God then began revealing Himself to her in dreams, so she sought out a local missionary looking for an interpretation.  

With guidance from the missionaries, over time she accepts Jesus as her Lord and Savior and comes to know Him in such an intimate way that she senses His presence with her and notices it is absent when she is disobedient.  Her faith is so deep and vibrant, it made me want to cry out, "I want that!" 

I would encourage you to read, "I Dared to Call Him Father...," you will be blessed!

Back when I was in high school I was on the basketball team. Notice I said I was on the team. I didn't say I played on the team because I didn't. Play that is. I was in that unenviable position of being just good enough to make the team but not quite good enough to play. And when there are twelve girls on the team and only ten are needed to practice...let's just say I watched a lot of basketball.

Back then I had heard that you needed to think big, shoot for the stars, be all you can be - you get the drift. So I set a goal of making the all-conference team. Um, yeah. This from a girl that never played, not even in practice.  Sure, I had a goal, but it was very general and far-reaching, plus I really didn't have a clue as to how to achieve it.

WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER

Studies have shown that those most successful in any given field don't focus on outcomes; they focus on improving their behavior or the process.* In other words, I should have aimed to have more control over my dribble or to develop a good form while shooting free-throws rather than setting my sights on the lofty goal of all-conference. 

The same principle can be applied to our spiritual lives. Rather than focusing on a general goal of being more consistent in our quiet times or spending more time with the Lord, we need to make our goal more measurable and specific.


SUCCESS FOR TOMORROW BEGINS TODAY

Success is found in the little things.  It only takes a small change make a big difference in your life. Isn't that good news friends? You don't have to have it all figured out. You don't have to be the best or the brightest. You just need to start with one little change. The challenge is discerning what change needs to be made.

Let me give you an example. 

I tend to get distracted, and I've discovered these distractions come in many forms, most of them electronic. (Anyone else with me here?) For example, there's my phone. I'm fairly new to this phenomenon, owning a smart phone for just shy of a year now. It came into my possession with alerts set to notify me of anything and everything. It wasn't long before I was behaving like one of Pavlov's dogs. Every time I heard an alert go off, I'd rush to the phone to take a "quick" look. More often than not, looking at the teaser on the home screen was only enough to whet my appetite, so I'd open up the email or text or facebook to glance at the message in its entirety. The next thing I knew, I was "quickly" sending a reply. 


Not only would this constant barrage of interruptions keep me from concentrating on the task at hand, but sometimes they gave Dude and Bubba just the opportunity they needed to add something more to my schedule - like cleaning up cat food! (In Bubba's defense, it was Dude - the innocent looking one sitting on the sofa - who was responsible for most of this mess. He was just running there when I turned to snap this photo.)

So what change could I implement to make a difference here? I turned off the alert sounds on my phone.  I've found that if I don't hear the sounds, I don't look at my phone nearly as often. Since the alerts can still catch my eye, I've added the step of keeping my phone face-down when I really need to keep my focus on the task at hand.


Small Change = Big Difference

Looking back, I realize I've created more time to spend with the Lord by making a series of these small changes, one at a time, in regards to my television set. I grew up in a home where it was on literally ALL the time, and so it became just something I did; background noise that would repeatedly lure me in. 

Here are the steps I took to help overcome this stronghold in my life: 

  • I started by keeping the TV off unless I specifically wanted to watch something.

  • Next, I eliminated watching mid-day.

  • Then I quit turning it on first thing in the morning. I would tell myself, "I'm just going to watch the weather forecast," but then I'd think, "I really should catch up on the local news," followed by, "I wonder what's going on in the national news," and then there would be a teaser for an upcoming segment and I'd stay tuned to watch that. Before I knew it I had lost an hour (sometimes more!)

  • I stopped adding new shows to the ones I watched.

  • God helped me with the final step by giving me pain in my neck! It had been my habit to lie in bed and watch TV until I fell asleep, but when it became physically too painful to do so I had to go to bed without turning the television on.

Over the years, there were many times I tried to watch less TV but success was fleeting at best. I really didn't see any progress until I started addressing the problem one step at a time. These incremental changes have ultimately led me to victory in this area of my life.

Small Change = Big Difference

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” ~ Matthew 7:20

Not sure where to start? As with everything in life, our first course of action should be to pray.  God knows you better than you know yourself, so ask for His guidance as you seek to spend more time with Him. Ask Him to show you the first step you need to make to take back control of your time!

How about you? Can you think of a small change you could make (or have made) to reclaim wasted time? Please leave a comment - even if it's not something you normally do - so we can help each other. I'd love to hear from you! Pretty please?

Father, I am so thankful that through you all things are possible! Thank you for shaving seemingly insurmountable goals into something I can achieve! Forgive me for all those times I only turned to You after I ran out of my own ideas, and help me to make you my first resort, not the last.

Tips for Tuesday

Here's another yummy, healthy recipe I tried, found on the back of a pharmacy receipt of all places. It even had some helpful hints for choosing a squash:
  • It should feel heavy for its size and be free of damage, wrinkles, blemishes or soft spots
  • Should have 1" of stem intact (to prevent drying)
  • Butternut squash: even, creamy orange skin, little or no green streaks
  • Acorn squash: deep green skin with an orange patch (indicates ripeness), minimal blemishes
  • Can be stored in a cool, dry pantry up to 2 months



STUFFED ACORN SQUASH

1 cup cooked brown/wild rice blend       12 oz sausage links, diced
2 acorn squash, halved and seeded       ½ c sweet onion sliced thin
2 large apples, peeled, cored and diced   ¼ cup dried cranberries
2 Tablespoons pecans, chopped             1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
¼ cup orange juice                               2 tsp pure maple syrup
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon                ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

Preheat oven to 375˚. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Cut a small slice off each end of the squash so it has a flat surface to stand on. Drizzle the squash halves with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place skin-side up on the baking sheet and tightly cover with a second piece of foil.  Bake in preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, until tender.  (Or microwave squash on high 12-14 minutes, until tender, rotating every 4-5 minutes.)


Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and brown onions and apples, cooking until crisp tender.  Add diced sausage and heat through. Stir in the cranberries, pecans and thyme. In a large bowl, toss to combine the cooked rice and sausage mixtures.


In a small bowl, mix orange juice and maple syrup.  Pour over the rice and sausage mixture and toss to incorporate.  Season to taste with salt and pepper, cinnamon and cloves and mix well.

Once the squash have cooked, turn them over on the baking sheet.  Fill each squash with ¼ of the filling.  Return to the oven, uncovered, for 15 minutes to lightly brown.  Serve immediately. Serves 4.
