So much goodness today happened to confirm I am on the right path, little (and big) God moments that encouraged my heart and continued to solidify the truth of who I am and who God is in this journey.
I love this particular challenge for how it brings me to focus in on this specific intention every day…to look at it and evaluate it, feel it, converse with God about it…I'm reminded how focus brings expansion which feels a bit counterintuitive. It would seem that the more I look around the more I see, but really it's the more I look intently at this one thing, the more I truly see what I am looking at.
Today we visited a church near downtown Dallas, and it was as if everything was orchestrated just for me…from the row we sat on and the people we met, to the worship, to the prayer time, to the prophetic moments, to the sermon…
This afternoon was our 3rd group call with Dr. Perkus. He encouraged us to consider who we need to be in order to reach our goals and intentions. What came to me immediately was "I am fearless." We then went through an AFT clearing on that statement.
Let me tell you, the tension and trembling in my chest was tremendous! It felt like fear was off the charts in my body. Or was it nervous excitement? Or both? As we went through the clearing my number started at a 2, went to a 3, dropped to a 1, and soared to a 9. I felt in my head I was at a 9, but my body was still in that somewhat scary feeling in my chest.
Fear and excitement are very close and sometimes indistinguishable in the body. Truthfully, I think what I need to be more than fearless is courageous because when fears come, I'll still need to act…which takes courage. So I shifted my affirmation to "I am courageous and do what I need to do" for this particular exercise. I still had/have this intense feeling in my chest which I'm going to name "excited anticipation," the kind you have when you are riding an epic roller coaster.
It's late, so I'll have to write another day more in depth the revelations I'm getting all. day. long. But I did want to share this from church this morning. The primary message was on God's principle of multiplication and this leaped out at me from the reading:
My big bodacious goal/affirmation gets a little tweak from all of the downloads I got today from this passage:
