It’s a question that was posed to me a few months ago and as a result, I’ve been walking every other week with a friend. It is a time of encouragement, fresh air (although the weather seems to turn poor only on those walking days!), exercise, and sometimes general brain dumping about our lives.
Some days (ok – most days) I crave something sweet. Typically, a small bite of chocolate will do the trick to satisfy my sweet tooth. Other days, well, those times require a more decadent treat: warm, gooey, rich chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven. Even better is a skillet cookie for two baked in my favorite vintage mini cast iron skillet.
Stop and change my way of thinking, otherwise my mind goes dark and my heart hurts. It is during those times that I have to lean the most on the Word of God. In this case I read, pray and mediate over Romans 8.
