Ever changing

I am exhausted. I may be exhausted from resting. That is, after all, the focus of my week. I had some tremendous breakthroughs today. I am excited about them. I am learning to love. Often I think I am just going to spend the rest of my life retaking step 1. It seems most of my growth comes through remembering I cannot control anything. Let it go!

I spent some time this evening sorting out truth from lies. How does Jesus love? How did Jesus love in this particular scenario? It is always interesting to deal with the reality of who Jesus was. Always a friend of sinners. Never a friend of the self-righteous. It seems to me God does not heal me in any area of my life where I do not think I need healing.

Coincidentally, apparently Thursday evening there is a church service at a neighboring Hispanic church because I can hear Spanish preaching from my window.

I have been thinking about how Jesus never turned anyone away who came to Him for help, yet He had boundaries. He never minced words with the Pharisees though the very fact He talked with them means He took time for them. This is also something I have been thinking about. I have no idea how it applies to my life. In general, I think listening to the Spirit is a great way to decide which relationships to invest in and which to let go. Still I think about what Jesus did.

While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.” He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” – Matthew 12:46-50
