Everyone gets bogged down in the mundane day to day life. I can help congregations get that hunger back for digging into the word of God. With that hunger comes a renewed desire to teach and disciple others. To have our minds more on God and the things of God. Would you believe that through everyday speech you are talking about God. Whenever you introduce yourself, you say, “I am ……..”, or if you about to do something you say, “I am about to ……”. We are talking more about the “I am” more than we realize and we are always putting Him first, even in our speech. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” (Isaiah 26:)
