This quarter has revealed some areas of my life that need God’s grace and my willingness to make some changes. I must constantly remind myself to renew my mind in Christ instead of defaulting into habits and modes of thought which make my instincts primary rather then God’s word for the moment. It has been helpful to maintain a posture of constantly calling on the Holy Spirit to keep my focus on the voice from heaven. Even if I don’t receive anything, it is challenging me to develop a place of receptivity for God in my life. This developing posture towards heaven is allowing me to take the risks necessary to pray with people and stepping out in faith. Fear is diminishing as I live out making my identity more God based rather then based on my history.
