It was interesting that in one of my lectures in Integration of psychology, theology, and spirituality my professor was talking about holy habits for various reason. However, I say this to point out tha God will prepare you for what he has for you. The Lord had been dealing with me about getting up before my children and just reading His word and praying. Almost like creating an atmosphere in my home. My professor said something I liked. He said it is not the holy habit in themselves that brings us closer to God but it ishow God chooses to work through these habits tha draw us closer to God in relationship. It was just a reminder to myself that no matter how much I read my bible, sing praises, pray, fast, or do good toward others God is still the one that works through all of those actions to have them mean anything at all. When we stay aware of this it brings about a sense of humility and humbleness.

Lord I ask you that through my quest in higher educaion and my attempts to become closer to you through develping holy habits that I always remember that it is You who works through my attempts in order for them to mean anything at all. God I love you and thank you for your ways, for they are not like my own.

Amen
