    Erin, I couldn’t agree more. This sermon has stuck to me like the persistent static cling of a cotton sock to wool trousers. While visiting some college friends this past weekend, the sermon came up (again). I shared with my friend, a prayer partner, how I can see the Lord outlining “a good no” to various areas of my life from bedtime to budgeting.

    The most intimidating part to me is admitting that I need help with discipline in these areas. It’s a blow to my pride *gasp* to become vulnerable about them to others. No, really my stomach sorta flips at the idea of someone knowing “the specifics” of my weaknesses. Ultimately, I know that I have a few appointments to keep: to chat with the Lord about these areas and also to submit to good council.

    I want to respond more obediently to God’s boundaries. In so doing, I must remember that the work of obedience is bolstered in a grace-filled group of believers.
