Being challenged not to think so much

Belinda and I have just returned home from Week 2 of the "Journeying with God" course that is currently running at John Street, and are feeling quite challenged at the moment. (For those of you who are confused as to which "home" I'm referring to, my wife and son are spending about 2 1/2 weeks with me in Uitenhage - yay!).

I'm being challenged, in particular, to place less reliance on my logical mind, and greater reliance on the move of God's Spirit. For someone who, although I love Jesus very much, has tended to be overly focused on the accountant's mindset of "for every debit, there MUST be a credit", this is proving to be quite a journey!

God is about to take me to a new place in my life. I feel it. I sense it. Now I just need to trust Him and allow it to happen...

(And yes - things ARE slowly getting better concerning how I am beginning to deal with the uncertainty around next year. Call it release, call it peace, call it having my wife and son with me, or call it being able to get a couple of nights of really GOOD sleep - or a combination thereof. Oh, there I go again - trying to be logical...)

"GOOD sleep" ??!!

Is that what it is called these days? Or am I thinking with my dirty mind again ?

Hey Hanno - I don't know what IS going through your "dirty little mind", but seeing as "marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled", even the part that comes before the sleep is good!
