Series: Gifted for Leadership Bible Study
When Susan Arico stepped back from her jam-packed calendar, she compared it to a dark, overcrowded broom closet. Dare to open the door, she said, and everything is apt to topple perilously down into a heap. Each activity in her broom closet could be described as God-pleasing, but she realized that taken together, her activities had become God-replacing.
Her dilemma is shared by many engaged, motivated, and productive Christians. Use this Bible study to help find your spacious place - to daily put yourself, your activities, and the hours of your day in God s hands.
