my summer reading currently is Experiencing God with the Facebook group led by Mandisa, the book of John study with a sister in Christ, and then with all your heart by Christine Hoover with a sister in Texas and a group of women on zoom.
I am also reading Eat the Cookie by Taylor Kiser when it arrives tomorrow.
common theme I am seeing for 2020: life or death and obedience or sacrifice – the choice is mine.
Tied to these choices is the Word of the Lord, my relationship with God, and how I seek Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit.
because out of my choices flows either God or me.
and so far what I read is I don’t want me. this isn’t about punishing myself, but understanding to give my heart, to confess my sins and to lay it all down to obey His Word equals life.
True Holy Life in Jesus.
so I am thinking deeply about all of my relationships, my job, my family.
i did this in therapy years ago when dealing with depression and childhood issues and the question Where was God in all of this? Why do people behave the way they do? What the heck was I thinking when I did ________?
and God is there. watching, hoping, leading, waiting.
so this summer i am working on continuing to choose life and obedience.
I am working on this in every area of my day and my night, of my coming and my going, of my waking and my sleeping.
what are you working on this summer? what will you do with the choices in front of you?
in light of what is going on in the world what choices can we make?
blessings. on the day. the week. the summer. the year.
God is there waiting on you. He wants you so badly to know Him.
