Celebrate good times

Today was a very peaceful day emotionally for me. I think partly because I have a sinus issue that seems to be turning into an infection and I really am unable to think clearly through the mental fog.

I had a conversation with a friend last evening after blogging. I shared about how hard this part of the journey is. I think something about the conversation helped me. That and ending on the thought of thankfulness that I am finally willing to do the hard stuff and get through this.

I had an awesome quiet time with God this morning. I came to Him asking Him to fill my cup because I had run out of stuff to pour out of it. He did. I love that my reading plan has me reading through the last words of Jesus to His disciples right after Easter. Easter put me in the mood to read them with extra thought to them being final words and all. “In my Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would not have told you. Fear not, I am going to prepare a place for you…” I kept this verse with me throughout the day. Me gusta.

I started reading the Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster today. I was rocking out to some country music as I read. As I started the chapter on meditation, it occurred to me maybe I should turn on the music and put full concentration on the book.

We are taking an extra week this week to answer the questions for step study. It is a good thing. I had a hard time digging very deeply for this week’s questions. We are on week 10 now – Taking an honest spiritual inventory I. I have answered all the generalities of the questions. I am just struggling to provide specific examples in my answers as requested. How do you exaggerate? Provide specific examples. Ugh.

The huge celebration for today is that I can see I am growing. Slowly, but I am growing. I was in at least two situations today where generally fear, nerves or shyness would have entirely scared me. Honestly, I did not have to deal with those things. A bit of mental sinus fog, but not fear. Adjusting to new feelings and experiences, but not fear.

I will celebrate today because who knows what will happen tomorrow?

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! – Philippians 4:4
