What You Wish Wednesday No. 2

Welcome back for another What You Wish Wednesday.  Last week was fun and I was able to get acquainted with some new bloggers and look around their blogs.  I hope to see more of you turn out this week.  It's a super easy way to connect with other bloggers and gather a little inspiration along the way!
**The details for the link-up are at the bottom of the post.

What are you reading?  Need a good book?  Try this one:


Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald Whitney

I have read through this book about 3 times and this is not the first time I've suggested it here on the blog.  It's a great book for Christians that are serious about growing in godliness.  We are going through it in a class at church and I'm planning on reading it a fourth time with a discipleship group in the fall.  

I'm telling y'all, if we (Christians) aren't disciplined to read our Bibles, study and meditate on the scriptures, memorize scripture, pray, serve, worship, give; we aren't going to grow in godliness like we should.  There isn't a Christian around that can say she's arrived--that she has this whole thing mastered.  It's a continual process--being renewed and refined for OUR JOY and HIS GLORY.

I challenge you to commit this verse to memory:

Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness. I Timothy 4:7

  3. I haven't read this book, but I agree that staying in the Word and continuing to grow is so important.
