A few weeks ago I heard a sermon that asked the question, "Where are you walking? What patterns are you making in your life?"
There are so many patterns that I have created in my life, negative patterns that have held me back from being everything that God created me to be. I have doubted myself and my talents. I have judged others and accepted others judgement and assessment of myself as if it were the only truth.
Enough is enough!
It's time to create new patterns! It's time to step off the paths that I have previously worn into my life. It is time for new patterns, new hope, new truth! God's truth!
One at a time...
Yesterday, Jacob and I went on a bicycle ride on the Arkansas Greenway. We rode from Lake Fayetteville to Mile Marker 0 on the Greenway. I think he said altogether round trip was 17 miles or something.
I was struggling. Old men were flying by me. Younger people were zipping by. (That has a way of humbling you.) I had to get off my bike and walk parts because my body was struggling so bad.
This is the pattern I have created. When I start to struggle I should just walk away. I should just ease up. I shouldn't work as hard.
God, break this pattern in me. Show me the patterns that I have created in my life that do not align with you. Make them known so that new patterns can be created. New patterns that draw me closer to You. New patterns that exalt you!
"I treat my body hard and make it my slave so that I myself will not be disqualified after I have preached to others." 1 Corinthians 9:27 NCV
A New Identity
What is this blog about? You mean, I'm supposed to have a purpose? Ok, if that's required then my purpose is life.
