i called a friend a few days ago to talk w her about what God had been speaking w me about in my morning prayer time. i was so thoroughly rocked that i started crying as i talked w her & if you know me at all, crying isn’t part of the normal operating routine. crying was an outward expression of total amazement at the sense of God’s presence w me in the car at that time, as i tried to share the amazing things God was speaking w me about. these last few days have been extremely powerful for me on a deeply personal level. i’m sensing God dealing w me about things that have been difficult for me for a very long time . . . & i feel God walking and talking w me deeply, clearly and with healing.
This kind of reminds me of an experience i had w God when i was 14 at a summer church camp – i came home w such an intense awareness of God that i sensed Him throughout my entire summer before high school. My experience over the last few days has been similar & even now as i write, i feel His presence. i pray that your needs, questions, unknowns, etc serve as paths to a greater interface w God in your daily living, in an ongoing way.
i’m eager to watch God over the next few weeks, as I begin a series on Wed nights related to fasting & Jesus’ words on fasting in the Sermon on the Mount – come if you can, but at least check out the blogs & feedback from a few days ago about the experience of fasting from lots of different people (their insights, suggestions, frustrations, experiences, etc).
i’m amazed by God
