Forgotten Journeys

In the back corner of my office stand two mahogany bookshelves. One shelf houses my spiritual books and the other shelf displays my shelf help books. Lately, the dust covers my spiritual shelf with a coating of my indifference. The books about various “do it yourself “subjects entice my intellect to discover new and practical methods. I have a “do it yourself” mentality. The challenge to practice new methods of building and renovating this old house overshadows my spiritual pursuits. Until, this morning’s spiritual wakeup call from the LORD.

The other day, a book written by Oswald Chambers, caught my eye. Or, should I say, the Holy Spirit, nudged my hands towards the burgundy book titled “My Utmost For His Highest”. Every morning before pursuing a new building project, I read about Oswald’s insights about life and scripture. The most amazing thing about this method: projects end well with a prayer and a helping hand from my earlier devotion. “Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things….” Really…really works.

What devotion smacked my spiritual face this morning? It is titled “Do It Yourself”.
The secret to my “do it yourself” mentality is a disciplined mind. A mind that seeks God at all cost. The greatest renovation is my will; thoughts and actions fine-tuned to the will of God. Only then, do I truly understand the concept of “Seek first the kingdom of God”. Each morning I take a journey into the world of Oswald Chalmers. Each morning I discipline my mind with scripture memorization. My unforgotten journey into my bookshelf of spiritual delights ends with a determination to discipline my mind, will, and emotions towards Gods thoughts, will, and actions. Only then will every “do it yourself” project end successful because I can discipline my mind.
