I have the inclination to write a substantial blog about what God has been teaching me lately and yet I'm having a hard time making myself focus long enough to write a coherent articulation of those things. Therefore, here is a preview in bullets:
-- "The present is the point at which time touches eternity." - C.S. Lewis
-- "The Miracle of the Moment" (SCC) - not taking moments for granted but taking each one as an opportunity to be to the glory of God.
-- This is connected to the way I spend my time. ("Sometimes I feel disappointed by the way I spend my time. How can I further Your Kingdom when I'm so wrapped up in mine?" - Mercy Me)
-- Ben Hardman talked about moments some tonight at The Post. (Commemorating moments like Abraham did with the alters…)
-- “The Journey is the Destination” -- to expound: worshiping God is not a means to an end. It is an end - it is the point - everything else: the way I spend my time, the things I do, the things I say, the things I think about, these are the means to the end: worshiping God... with my life.
-- God said to Abraham, “go to the land I will show you” (Gen 12:1-2), God didn’t tell him exactly where or how or why, He just said go, and Abraham followed where God led him. It was a call to leave his comfort zone.
-- Am I willing to go where God is calling me? Even if I don’t know exactly where that is? I want to be.
