the love game
People say that it takes 30 days to change a habit. I think that’s incorrect. Over the course of the past three weeks I’ve learned that if you throw a little bit of God in the mix, it can take far less than 30 days to change a habit. What’s more, he can change not only a habit, but a heart.
Before I experienced pregnancy and childbirth, I could only talk about what I thought it was like. You can’t really begin to describe the joy you have when you feel your baby moving inside you. You can’t really describe the pain of labor. I kind of feel that way about this fasting experience. It’s really hard to describe exactly what I’m feeling.
Three weeks ago, I loved God, I sought to follow Him, I tried to spend time with Him. Now, it’s become something different. Now, I HAVE to. He has become the center of my thoughts. By having to discipline my body in what I did and did not eat, I have learned to discipline my heart and mind to focus on Jesus.
As a result, He has shown himself to me.
and over again.
It’s almost like he’s playing a game…“how many ways can I show her I love her today”… and it’s a game I’m in love with.
What’s best, is that I didn’t even have to “get away” on some retreat, or weekend, or longer term quiet experience. He’s done all of this in the midst of my every day life.
My 21 day fasting will be over tomorrow, and I look forward to what God has for me in the days to come.
Like, I can’t WAIT to see what he has for me… it’s what I’m living for. 🙂
