EP6 | Discipline Before Desire: How to cultivate longing for God
We know that we want to hunger and thirst for God, but sometimes we just… don’t.
And yet, each day we spend on this earth is a holy opportunity to live in an eternally meaningful way. If we fail to do that, the opportunity is lost forever. If we allow ourselves to wrap up in the wrong things, the implications are profound. If we allow ourselves to love the world more than our Savior, the results are tragic.
So, is there a way to cultivate desire for God in our lives where it lacks? We think so!
In this episode I’m so excited to introduce you to a very important person in my life. She is one of my long-time best friends, and I think you’ll quickly see why I count her as such a blessing.
Please join us as we talk about:
- the principle of discipline before desire
- how to really find time to spend with God as a busy mother or individual
- the fruit born in our lives through patient endurance
Start living a deeper life and get to know the God who created you and loves you.
