FAll


Well, its that time of year again when everything changes and the weather gets cooler and the leaves start to change colors. A lot has changed here in the Cutler household lately. We have left our church and now go to another and it has been hard, but we have been getting through and God has been working in our lives and I am so excited about what God is and will do. A couple of nights ago Ben and I were having a deep conversation about whether we have seen any growth in our lives spiritually and it was a great conversation and just by asking those kinds of questions show that there has been and I've been so inspired to do a Bible Study by myself called "A Woman After God's Own Heart." So far it has really been so refreshing and I'm learning what it means to be a woman, and a wife. To be all that God wants us to be is something that we reach for every day. I love what Elizabeth George says " You are never wasting time when you are spending it with God." I just love that!!! Another thing she says is,"It is discipline, because there is work for us to do. It is Grace, because the life of God which we enter into is a gift which we can never earn...Discipline in and of itself does not make us righteous, it merely places us before God...The transformation...is God's work." Isn't that wonderful?

  1. I love that thought about discipline not making us righteous, but it merely putting us before God. That is so true. I think it's why we struggle so much with the balance of being given his grace, but having to be disciplined ourselves.
