Hebrews 2 – Don’t Drift This Summer

While moving through a barre workout, it’s normal to relax your posture. It’s tough to be intentional about our core and alignment and movement the entire time. But we need to so we don’t get injured, maximum the experience, and stayed engaged.

Hebrews 2 begins with a similar message of spiritual truth.

We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.

Hebrews 2:1

Whether it’s on a raft in a pool or how we spend our day, it’s easy to drift away in the summer. We can easily shift our attention and little by little, let the current of our culture move us in another direction and just ‘go with the flow’. Yet shifting our gaze to the truth of scriptures and being obedient in our posture helps us so ‘we don’t get injured, maximum the experience, and stayed engaged,’ as I stated above.

A little example of this is a couple nights ago I realized I’d drifted. Not a major deal but it really got my attention. Each night before I go to bed, I go into each of my children’s room to pray over them. This spring I developed some pretty intentional prayers based upon their seasons and discussions we’ve had. This week I’ve noticed my nightly prayers are pretty short and sweet. I’m not saying my prayers will change the outcome of my kids’ summers, but I do know my prayers reflect my attention towards their relationship with the Lord. And as I left my child’s room, it was as if the Spirit said, ‘let’s pay attention, Mama!’

This is the design for Hebrews 2:1 as a temporary tattoo.

Dwell Differently is a super cool organization focused on scripture memory. Each month they provide a verse, temporary tattoo, card, key chain, devotional, art, etc for that verse, utilizing the first leader of each word to assist in scripture memory. And yes, this month’s is Hebrews 2:1. This prayer they provided is too good not to share:

Mostly, we don’t run and bolt,
We just drift . . .
We put off for later,
Have so many things,
Get out of the habit,
Stare at the screen.
Much more the danger-
to drift unaware.
Rise, oh sleeper!
Pick up your oars.
Recall your first Love,
And be restored.

Join us for the below workout, and let’s pay attention as we savor the summer. We’ll only burn as bright as we let Him!
