Good reminder Seth, to just keep my heart in tune with God’s own and stop the unnecessary trash from piling up on my shoulders. Friends have been coming over once a week now to just sit up in our small attic and share stories from their past week. I always feel refreshed afterwards because of the deliberate encouragement, prayer and praise we offer up to Jesus…
Blind spots and baggage
Room 1 is the part of ourselves that we see and others see.Room 2 is
the aspects that others see but we are not aware of.Room 3 is the most
mysterious room in that the unconscious or subconscious part of us is
seen by neither ourselves nor others.Room 4 is our private space, which
we know but keep from others.
Love the idea of traveling light though it requires the hard work of getting rid of the dead bodies of performance & wounds, and learning to wait on God and his wonder. Wonder and trust.
Great word to start a day. Thanks Seth.
(Karen has a gift for hospitality…it rings out in this picture and so many others. Wow wee.)
Can you unpack “we lay our lives out there for inspection”. What does that concretely look like.
Sure Hans. Last night for example, we went around the table and everyone shared something that was troubling them at a deepest level.
There were relational issues. One of my kids doesn’t know who to process confidential matters with – her coach may have a conflict of interest in the matter. I shared how I haven’t been sleeping at nights. Two of my daughters are graduating from school and face anxieties.
We were respectful in listening and then prayed.
I don’t where people go with this stuff if not a safe, caring community.
Hey my brother…I had a several hour conversation with our mutual friend and mentor (at least for me) Dr. Emory Griffin just the other day. I mentioned you in the fray and he would be so proud to see you teaching some communication theory here. 🙂 For whatever it is worth I am sleeping better. But for me that is because I’m taking Catholic vows more seriously and trying to avoid the intergalactic spiritual wars. I’m going to be a grandfather again. Mackenzie has a baby on the way. And that gives me joy.
Love to the Barnes and for God’s sake please tell me the kitchen is being cared for. I’m long overdo to clean it friend.
learned about joharis window years ago its all about living in the light.another aspect of light is its speed we dont heal as fast as it travels.
