One scripture that constantly comes to mind is Matthew 6:33 which states, “Keep on, then, seeking first the Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you.”
With this in mind we have decided to work on personal improvement so that we might serve God to the full extent that our own circumstances permit. I officially put in the paperwork for early retirement two weeks ago.
We start our mornings now with the daily text, a prayer, and either field service or medical appointments. We round out the end of the day with personal or family study, meetings (twice per week), Etsy order filling, and housework. It’s still a little scary, but I think that means we are on the right track.
