Devoted Time (Wednesday)

discipline

 

David Brainerd (1718-1747) is a remarkable example of a disciplined life. Physically unwell (likely TB), he had a well-exercised soul. His journal attests to the hours he devoted to prayer, Bible study and meditation. He said:

 

“When you cease from labour, fill up your time in reading, meditation, and prayer: and while your hands are labouring, let your heart be employed, as much as possible, in divine thoughts.”

Let your heart be employed in divine thoughts–what a way to spend one’s time!

David Brainerd’s ministry lasted only three years. The impact of his life is immeasurable. Remind you of Someone you know?bless soul pic
