Welcome to Lima First Assembly of God's discipleship program, where we value the importance of weaving margin back into our lives. In this fast-paced and demanding world, it's crucial to create space for balance and cultivate a deeper connection with our faith. Here, we explore the art and necessity of slowing down and finding peace amidst the chaos.
1. Prioritizing Daily Devotions
In today's hectic world, carving out time for daily devotions can seem challenging, but it is a vital step in weaving margin back into our lives. By setting aside intentional moments each day to connect with God through prayer, meditation, and reading His Word, we invite His peace and wisdom into our lives. Our discipleship program provides a structured approach to daily devotions, offering guidance and support to help you make this practice a meaningful part of your routine.
2. Embracing Sabbath Rest
In a culture that glorifies busyness, embracing Sabbath rest can feel counterintuitive. However, prioritizing a regular day of rest allows us to recharge and refocus, enabling us to be more productive and present throughout the week. Our discipleship program offers resources and teachings on the importance of Sabbath rest, helping you establish a rhythm of work and rest that nourishes your soul.
3. Practicing Mindfulness
Living in the present moment is essential for creating margin in our lives. By practicing mindfulness – the intentional awareness of our thoughts, emotions, and surroundings – we can cultivate a sense of calm and perspective. Our discipleship program incorporates mindfulness exercises and teachings that guide you in embracing the power of the present moment and experiencing God's presence in the midst of everyday life.
4. Setting Boundaries
Learning to say "no" is a crucial skill when it comes to weaving margin back into our lives. Setting healthy boundaries allows us to prioritize our time and energy, ensuring that we allocate resources to what truly matters. Our discipleship program equips you with practical strategies for setting boundaries, empowering you to take control of your schedule and create space for what brings you joy and fulfillment.
5. Cultivating Community
Weaving margin back into our lives becomes even more enriching when done in community. Connecting with others who share similar values and goals cultivates accountability and support. Our discipleship program facilitates meaningful connections and provides opportunities for fellowship, allowing you to build relationships with like-minded individuals on the faith journey.
At Lima First Assembly of God, we understand the challenges of living in a society that often lacks margin. Through our discipleship program, we are committed to coming alongside you as you learn to slow down, reconnect with your faith, and embrace a life of balance and purpose. Join us on this transformative journey as we weave margin back into our lives together.
