Beyond Your Ideas

We spend our days in limited & concrete terms. We live by schedules, deadlines, physical boundaries & financial constraints to say nothing of the limits in our thoughts & emotions.
But I keep sensing the Holy Spirit challenging my thoughts & limits – most of all in my perspective. I am coming to see that lots of my thinking reflects stuff from my past that I’ve perceived through faulty & flawed filters. What I keep experiencing is open doors in ways that I never anticipated & they’re wonderfully surprising! Let’s keep these verses in the front of our thoughts & emotions:
1 Cor 2:9-10, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.”

Range of Motion part1

I’ve been enjoying the adventure of physical therapy in recovering from a recent Shuler surgery & part of the adventure is exploring the limits of my range of motion – not so bueno. It seems like the muscles in my shoulder haven’t appreciated the recent intrusion & so they tend to get cranky & resistant, imagine that ,)

I think there’s some similarity with God & the range of motion we allow God in our lives. Perhaps we keep these limits because of:
*previous bad experiences
*a lack of trust
*resistance to new things / experiences – letting 
*pain that come with change
*exercise that requires effort & work that can be uncomfortable 
With these ideas & maybe a few of your own thoughts, let’s consider the possibility that we may have limited God’s range of motion in our lives & agree to take off some of the boundaries 🙂
