X time

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I love it because I am weak and need perfect power. This morning I had my spiritual breakfast – you know the new x time thing. During breakfast I realized I had the opportunity to change my story today. Tonight when I arrived home I could be celebrating the victories. His power was made perfect in my weakness this morning. This x time has been amazing.

I have been studying the body of Christ a lot recently. It has been changing my worldview a little bit. Challenging me and helping me see the people around me differently. If you have read this blog for long, you know I needed that. This morning I sat in a meeting with someone I used to be terrified of. But I wasn’t terrified. I was part of the same Body. We were on the same team. My God can do great big huge miracles. It is one of the reasons I worship Him.

Recently I have begun praying a prayer from my early years of counseling seven or eight years ago. One of the lines is “Come into my heart, break down every idol and cast out every foe.” Sometimes I pray it because I have run out of other things to say. Sometimes I pray it because I genuinely want it. I was thinking today that this prayer would help me worship Him better. Not the prayer, the answer to it.

I thought today about “that we may [worship God]” versus “that we must [worship God].” I thought the latter was perhaps an oxymoron. If I was only going to serve God because I thought I had to, would that be adoring Him? Would it be worship? Would a gift given grudgingly honor Him? I have thought that gifts can be given painfully yet not grudgingly. I can give with a cheerful heart and still have a really hard time letting go of what I have. I don’t know. It makes sense to me.

I decided today that I hoped God would rub off on me during the x time. That is what I want, so others will see Him. Anyways, the x time has been very beneficial. Now if I can keep it an enjoyment and act of worship in my life instead of a ritual or legalistic discipline, my life will change.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5
