Consider: Adorned

Some friends and I just finished studying through Adorned by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. Since it was a good discussion, here is a snippet for you to consider for yourself, if you are not familiar with the book:

But that’s part of the beauty of Titus 2! It brings to these messy realities the promise of reinforcements for the struggle, and recovery of our divine calling and purpose…

The other good news is, it will be worth it in the end. Your effort matters. Once you put in the work, you can enjoy the benefits. After you make the habits, you can rest in the rewards.

But still…

You just have to do it.
