Today I feel rested and ready to explore this new territory. We spent yesterday staying close to “home”. Found a great little place to eat lunch–breakfast and got some good ideas for eating other than chain restaurants. Today we will explore the inland mountain towns. It will be cooler today than the rest of the week so we are waiting until tomorrow to hit the beach.
As I started this morning with devotions I found myself more rested than I’ve been in quite a while. I suppose that’s a good thing. I finished the Old Testament, did my journaling and asked God what I should make of this peacefulness? It seemed he wanted me to enjoy it–so I am.
I got started reading in the workbook I recently purchased to address a recovery group focusing on homosexuality. I believe it will be great. I know I want to go through both it and the one for sexual abuse. But, I don’t know where I’ll start at this point. We will wait and see where God opens doors and how our pastors feel once we hit the first of the year and know better who will be co-partnering with me.
Wow, my spirit feels whole today. There are no longings, just a sense of contentment. I’m sure this is a good thing, but it is somewhat foreign. That awakening yesterday morning about reconciling my worth to God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit is likely the root of this, but I’ve also learned not to jump too quickly into less rooted beliefs. I know in my head They have done this work for each of us, including me. I’ll just leave it as peace one day at a time. Satan will try and destroy it I’m sure, but I will be better equipped to surrender the attack rather than fight it on my own. To God be all Glory!
