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.โ€ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚
