40 Days of Surrender - Day 14

Sunday, October 23, 2011 - Not everyday has a significant lesson

As the day came to a close nothing stirred my heart as a significant lesson.  But even within that there were a couple of lessons.

1)  It's OK that not every day do I receive noteworthy words from the LORD, but then again, yes I do.   I guess, it's a matter of how much I am impacted by them.  I am amazed (and I probably shouldn't be) that every day for two weeks straight I have sensed lessons from the LORD specifically regarding "surrender."  He must desire me to learn about that and my heart must be in the right place of learning in this season!

2) I didn't journal with the LORD this morning.  I find that often in those times of exchanging words and when I have stilled my heart (or am striving for a stilled heart) before Him, is when I sense that still small voice  (Psalms 46:10, Isaiah 30:21, 1 Kings 19:11,12).  It's OK that I didn't journal with the LORD today, but it's also a good reminder of the value of this discipline in hearing from our Father.

  1. I'm glad you aren't setting this expectation of yourself. The Lord will speak and reveal on His timing; just being near Him in the midst of this journey is probably all the lesson you'll need some days as that's hard all by itself. :)
