Please excuse the chicken scratch notes above. I was born a lefty in to a family notorious for bad handwriting and thus I continue the tradition. It’s my journal notes from this morning which read as follows:
“It’s through living water that God renews the mind. As the heart grows larger and more open to the Holy Spirit, the mind stretches to areas God wants it to.
A healed heart brings healthy, God focused thoughts which prompts righteous actions. Let God renew your heart, mind and soul!”
I hadn’t realized it but today’s entry was really a continuation of the one above it about an oasis I came across recently while hiking in the desert. That one actually is entitled Living Water and states:
“Like drinking water when you’re parched, inviting God in to my life quenches a deep thirst in me, as the Holy Spirit seeps in to areas inside me I didn’t even know existed.
This is how God renews us and creates something different. There we are plodding along, a bit directionless, confused and perhaps suffering through harsh circumstances, when suddenly His knock comes about. Open the door to His oasis, eat the mana, drink the living water and watch in awe as life unfolds through His perspective.
I wish you and your loved ones a Happy to start to a New Year full of renewal, hope and joy! Bring it on 2020!
