I am starting a book with my LIFE girls, the "Power of a Praying Life". I am excited and hungry for Jesus, not because I am super holy and that is the right thing to say, but because I am super broken and in need of redemption to make straight my path. everysingleday. Today, I am reminded I need to do some "housecleaning" which for me looks like this:
- Figure out where I am trying to get my deepest needs met. Through money, friends, food, my job...- and put those in proper perspective. Our family creed is "Worship the Creator, not the creation". I know at different phases of life I SUCK the life out of different things trying to fill the black void in my heart that only Jesus can fill. I wind up feeling emptier and emptier through each attempt.
- The God of intellect must become real and transcend into my heart and daily into my life.
- I am not God. I must quit pretending to play God with people, places or things. I have to renounce my selfishness, narcissism and grandiosity.
- I renounce putting other people or human institutions in the role of God.
