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.
