P is for Performance

What does performance have to do with growing closer to Father God? Not a thing. There are no performance standards for seeking deeper relationship with our Father. There's no minimum or maximum word count, no spell-check or grammar review expected. All that's required is a heart that honestly wants His presence.

Of course we have many options for moving our hearts in His direction. Music helps many people and using devotional writings can help, too. Recalling Father's character and His amazing deeds on our behalf, thanking Him for our past and current blessings, and reading His written word can all be helpful actions. But what helps me is not a requirement or even necessarily helpful to you. Each of us has a unique path to Father because He made each of us different. (On purpose!)

I bless you today to discover a spontaneous  path to Father's presence and to lay down any performance standards that you may have picked up on your journey to Him.


  1. It is so easy to fall into the trap of thinking that we earn God's grace by our performance.
