All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Having a bad day? Having a bad year? With this warm and thoughtful volume, Kathleen Long Bostrom offers 100 simple exercises that will boost your spirit and, more important, strengthen your spirit—that essential part of you that connects you to God.
Here are 100 practical exercises to help readers nurture their souls, a practice too often ignored as we deal with the day to day minutia of our lives. Each imaginative entry contains a practical step to boost the spirit, a relevant Scripture passage for reflection, a quotation to reflect on, a fun fact related to the exercise, and ample space for journaling.
More than simply cheering us up, Bostrom’s suggestions, thoughtfully undertaken, can create an enduring shift in how we choose to view the inevitable downsides of life.
