This month has been a great time to step back and re-focus on areas that need to change for the new school year!  One area that our household has been challenged with is how we will grow deeper in the Word.  After some difficult news of losing co-workers, we have been encouraged to lament deeper, more intentionally. Last week, during a conversation with colleagues, we were challenged to pray more regularly for our students/friends here that don’t know the Lord. We have had personal times of deeper prayer and more honest conversations with the Lord.  Our routines are including more and more of His word as we seek Truth and His best for us and those around us.

The picture of these clippings with roots growing wildly and without reason to stop are such a good visual to how I want my relationship with the Lord to look.
