Last night, I had been listening to a Spring Harvest worship Cd and laying on the floor- apparently doing nothing-to the non spiritual eye. And yet I had been doing everything.
I was praising God, and in a overwhelming state of love and awe-WOW-what a feeling-like no other. Surely this is why I possess a heart, and the only way to reach it's full potential!
I think that God can be one of two things to people.
God can be absolutely EVERYTHING or , absolutely NOTHING- I don't imagine that in-betweens are of any real use- anything less than everything may as well be nothing.
Sometimes I am lost in my day, thinking of new clothes, food, T.V, music, or even just pre occupied with my own character, often being melodramatic and over self seeking.
During that confusing time, and to my own shame, God becomes nothing. I am acutely aware (eventually) that there has been something uncomfortably wrong all day and even then, I am almost reluctant to leave myself and go back to God.
I think that through discipline( doesn't the word 'disciple' come from that?) daily, I can gradually reach the point where God is my everything all the time.
