In touch with my spiritual self....

It's funny how things have changed so much for me in such a short period of time. Every way of thinking, every area of my life has shifted ....And all because of revelation and encountering my Heavenly Father. I used to be so consumed with what I was doing, what I could accomplish, or what steps I was taking to achieve this, that or the other thing. Now I don't think about what I will do, I let God show me. But instead of doing or accomplishing, I am happy just to be, to think and to dream. To know I am being transformed by the renewing of my mind and becoming the someone I was truly meant to be. It's wonderful to be captivated by the Living God and to be united to Him in spirit.... I mean essentially I always was, but I created a barrier with my "doing" traditional religious legalistic mentality.....I let the veil fall back over my eyes...now that the veil is off, life with HIm is breathtaking, and carefree.....it's a wonderful journey walking hand in hand with My God......I honestly look forward to what each new day brings..what will He show me today, what will I learn about HIm.....how will my love for HIm grow today.....what blessings will I enjoy because He is so good....what challenges will He help me face.......I love having a Daddy like Him!!

I really enjoyed this post, and I am sure our Father enjoyed it even more.

That is a good place to be. Treasure it.

I tried posting this comment earlier today but it apparently didn't make it so I'll try again.

Lydia, I found your blog a couple of weeks ago by following a link on the Grace Roots blog. I went back to your first entry and have read them all. There's so much that you've written that I can relate to.

You wrote: "But instead of doing or accomplishing, I am happy just to be, to think and to dream."

I'm still getting there but I'm finding that Daddy is slowly freeing me of the need to be doing something great for him and to just learn to love him.

Joel has written about us "slow cookin" and that seems to be true in my case. Father started teaching me about grace about 10 years ago and I didn't get it so he took me on a different route. A few months ago, I found Steve McVey's website and then Joel Brueseke's website. Since then, things have really taken off.

What had been so confusing before is now making sense and I'm seeing some wonderful changes in my life. I wish I had gotten it 10 years ago but I didn't. I'm just so happy that Daddy didn't give up on me but continued to work in ways that I could understand.

I've loved reading about your journey. Thank you for being so willing to share.
