Today is day number 118 and the breakthroughs are starting. As you are aware I have been intentionally focusing on God's love during my morning time with an intention to see if God's love will transform me in some tangible and recognizable way. I'm challenging you to do the same. For more details on this, please see my previous two blog entries.
My focus the last two weeks has been to continue to ask God how I can perceive His love and receive it in an ever more tangible way, and also to stay in communication with Him throughout my day. I have to tell you that it's getting pretty exciting! After close to 120 days I'm starting to be able to silence the inner critic, the devil, and the world, and keep my eyes and ears focused on Jesus more and more.
It's a different world. Last week I was sitting on the deck at the cabin in the middle of the woods and could see and hear differently. There was a change in the vibrancy of the colours. The blues in the sky were bluer and the greens in the trees were greener. The sounds of the forest were crisper, birds singing and the small animals scurrying among the leaves were clearer. I cannot explain it other than God is showing me how different things can be when I focus on Him instead of myself and my problems.
I don't want to get into it this week too much, but as a quick update He is also transforming my eating and drinking habits as I had hoped would happen. More on that next week.
Keep up the good work. Post your journey in the comments section.
