There’s an interesting demonstration that’s going on around the country called Occupy & its made me think of what occupies me. We are all occupied by lots of things that could include: our desires, accomplishments, love, insecurities, addictions, shortcomings, hopes, family & relationships and much more. But I was thinking about this whole idea of occupy today & it reminded me about a verse from the Bible that says that I’m the “temple” of God, in other words, that God occupies me.
This idea has made me think about a few ideas that could possibly make God’s residence in my life a more comfortable place for Him to occupy.
*I think it’s important to make space in our lives for God to express Himself freely & with a minimum of distortion or even assistance.
*I also think that it’s important for God to feel comfortable in my daily living with how I treat the people around me, including my family.
*There are also times & situations that happen every day where I make decisions – I want to make decisions that will make God comfortable to be around me, even if I’m uncomfortable (letting His preferences be my priority)
I want my relationship with God to be my “pre-occupation” ,)
