A New Journey...

It has been a long time! I actually forgot I started blogging, but like a faint fragrance on the wind I was reminded and feel a prompting to place my thoughts down. There is a sense of new beginnings in our home, and I hope to capture some of that here. Not because I believe it's important for anyone to read, but it is important for me own.'s to a new journey with an old friend...

100 Day Journey - Week 3

"The longest journey of any person is the journey inward." - Dag Hammarskjold

Week 3 of the 100 Day Journey began yesterday. So far it has been different from my expectations. My journey has begun with a deeper awareness of myself as well as God. I don't think I've been self-focused, but I'm simply becoming much more self-aware. Aware of the tension inside to remove God from the center of my life and place myself in His place. Aware of just how deeply I can hurt others, especially those close to me. Aware of how much life I have to give, and how deep the joy is when I give it away. Aware of how long the journey to "Christlikeness" is, and how much every step is worth it. Aware that "Christ in me" is the deepest part of my reality, and my only hope to find the joy and peace my soul longs for. Aware that there is much beauty in the world that is waiting to be recognized and ackowledeged. Aware that there is much pain in the world that needs to be recognized and acknowledged. Aware that neutrality is not an option.

Gary Moon Quote…

“Saints are just like you and I—except they have determined to live their lives so close to God that it makes the devil too nervous to follow.”

100 Day Journey - Day 8...

So far this journey has taken some interesting turns. As I begin a new week I am pulled to the reality of the condition of my heart. Alan Hirsh and Micheal Frost point out that biblicaly the heart is the source of emotion, will, loyalty, and commitment. While it makes sence that this the place to start I am finding that it is also easy to confuse the heart and the head. Thinking about or on God is good, engaging God with my heart is transformational. Part of spiritual maturity is learning to discern between the two.

"lex orandi, lex credendi, lex vivendi" - how we worship reflects what we believe and determines how we will live. Seeking "God only" isn't something I want to study, it is a prayer for my life and the lives of my family. God please grant me the courage and perseverence to engage you with my whole heart.
