The Sacredness of the Common


Submitting to God’s work in the commonplace of life recognizes that heart-shaping does not go on and off the clock. God remains attentive to our hearts, to what we are becoming, even if we ourselves are not (nor can we always be)…. If God is always paying attention, there is no room to hide. Those who segment life sometimes do so to avoid dealing with the sacredness of the commonplace.

Brief Break


Dear Life Is Worship reader, I want to thank you for your readership and support over the past several years. I need to take a brief break. My family has a serious situation to address (which is why I haven’t posted anything this week), and blogging will have to take a back seat temporarily. I plan to resume posts on Monday, December 15. A few posts may appear between now and then because they were created a while ago.

If you would, please say a prayer for God’s all-sufficient grace for us in our time of weakness.

God bless!

Matt
