My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  8. I’m playing catch-up on your posts.

    With these videos, I did understand that change with my relationship with God would not likely occur overnight and that it would be a journey.

    I do find myself happy on some days to spend time with Him, while on others I feel pressed for time and just one to say a few prayers and get on to my other stuff. But, since I have made this committment to time with God everyday, I press forward–and at the end of each session, I have yet to be disappointed.

    Also, one of the little changes I have noticed is that I seem to be more aware of opportunities to serve Him. I’ll see someone that may need something very simple, and I’ll recall a Biblical passage that relates to the act that I was reading the previous night. The couple of times that it has happened since starting your program have been great reinforcement.

    Thanks again for the series.

    • Slamdunk – it is definitely a journey – the effort we make to put God first has an incredible impact on our relationship with Him and thus our lives – it was over time of spending this time daily that I started to things really change in my life for the first time. I’m praying almost daily for your relationship. So it’s wonderful to hear about it 😉

  9. Hey Rachel…I finally watched these; I’m a bit behind!

    As always, you had so many good reminders for me, especially about timing. So often since the Spirit has caused this shift in my journey to be more aware of God’s work and spend more time getting to know Him and walk in His ways, I have felt so very frustrated that I’m not changing in a certain way or that I don’t understand something or that I’m not feeling what I think I should. Just like you shared, I have asked God at these moments, “what’s wrong?” It seems so hard sometimes to hang on to what I already know and be grateful and full of joy for what He has already achieved in my life.

    I love that you’re talking about timing here too because during my Scripture reading in Genesis, two things struck me on this rereading of Joseph’s story. One is that he spent about two years in prison before his purpose was revealed that he should lead Egypt through the years of plenty and famine. I think most of us would probably have some frustration over two years in prison! but that’s what was needed for this part of our history to happen exactly as God wanted it to. The other thing that stood out was what Joseph says to his brothers when he tells them “be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for GOD DID SEND ME before you to preserve life. … God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth” (Genesis 45: 5, 7). This is certainly a testament to God working everything in His own time for His perfect reasons! Another Scripture to fill me with hope.

    Thanks again for the reminders; here I’ll wait and keep stirring!

    • Ruth – what great points you made! We often forget that its not just about us 🙂 and that God is orchestrating everyone according to His plan. There is a lot of peace when we can truly let our expectations rest in Him.
