week three…truth box.

this week in lecture we talked about truth…who is God and who am i?  God is who he says he is and i am who he says i am.  this was a good week – a lot of review from my worldview class at focus on the family, but it was a good week still.

this week i was challenged to set aside what i know in my mind about God – what I know from other people, what i know from books, even what i know from the Bible – and seek personal revelation about God.  i have a tendency to rely on what i know about God, because it feels safe and secure.  but i want to know God and his ways – that can only come through personal revelation.  and revelation brings transformation – transformation is my goal.  so my time here is starting to look different – i am here to set aside distractions and seek the Lord’s face…to seek personal revelation about the character of God.  i’m being more intentional about the way i use my free time – i want to rest in the stillness and silence instead of running to facebook, music, and people.

i only have 120 days left here…last week i was counting down the days til i got my freedom back.  today i count down the days with psalm 90:12 in mind, “so teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”  i am seeking a heart of wisdom.  God gave me this special season to take a break from learning about him and begin seeking him.

“you will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”  jeremiah 29:13
