We can not know the mind of God nor should we pretend to.
God reveals himself to each of us through the moments of our
lives as our need dictates. If only we make space in our lives to
know God’s will for us.
Too often our personal desires, and thoughts take up all the space
in our daily lives, our thoughts are too loud and block out the still quiet
voice of our Lord.
And worse than that we pretend to know the mind of God and we
bend scripture and our faith to come in line with our personal desires and
Here is the problem our desires are rooted in human
understanding, and are motivated by human experiences of pleasure, pain, love,
hate, greed, lack and competition.
Psalm 121:7 reminds us that it is our eternal souls that God
is protecting for all eternity, not necessarily our human experiences.
And when we are mindful in the moments of our lives, of God’s
presence, of God’s voice, we find that we are content and filled with joy not matter human experience that we find ourselves in – we have all that we need, we are full.
Following all of scriptural rules and not being mindful of
God in our daily lives we are putting our eternal souls at risk. We are placing ourselves in the position of assuming we know the mind of God.
Living in a state of mindfulness for God’s hand in our lives we are humbling ourselves to his will.
We come to know our Lord as our keeper, we will know we
are safe in God’s hands.
Late in June while looking through my Facebook feed I came upon a post about bullet journaling.
Hayley had posted her new weekly spread and
as an avid journaler I was very interested.
Hayley directed me to the Bullet Journal.com once there I watched the
introductory video and was convinced that I was going to try bullet journaling.
founder of bullet journaling has Attention Deficit as I do and he set
about developing an analog system to keep track of anything he/you might want
As I age the digital tracking
systems I keep are getting less and less effective as I am tracking more and
I was getting lost in all of the things that I am tracking!
started following bullet journalers and found that doodling, writing practice,
cursive writing practice, water colours, art, conventional journaling and
anything you might write/draw on paper.
the 1980’s I started putting indexes in my journals because I started to write
down things I wanted to remember, to track - bullet journaling fits well
into how I organize my ideas and thoughts.
are interested take a look at the bullet journal website and if you are interested
by a journal, look around and start writing.
It stopped raining in Salt Lake City mid morning on Saturday so once again we ventured out walking and walk we did. Ever corner presented something new to experience. As you can see it was cool after the rain, not a problem because there were many outdoor cafes to enjoy a great cup of coffee or tea.
Again sorry for the poor formatting posting at a cafe from my iPod we will clean all this up when we get home.
