This Week’s Video:

Questions to consider:

  • What does your origin story say about God?
  • When is the last time you were awake at 3:20 am? Did you feel like praising God? Would you consider waking up that early once this week, considering the God who is at work before time begins?
  • What are your thoughts on how realistic it is to begin your day in praise instead of anticipation of the day’s events? What are some things you could do to make that a reality (if you’re not already doing it!)?

I read the chapter yesterday and listened to the video today. As I read I felt that he was writing the complete book in chapter one. There were many interesting ideas presented though. This morning I realized that I was being more attentive to what I saw as I stood at the door and watched the activity of nature going on outside. The story of the woman who asked her husband why the son could understand him when he spoke and yet she could not, got my attention. The son listened from the heart. I realized that there are many times when I am looking at someone while they talk to me, but I am not listening. My mind is somewhere else. This weekend Rina, Douglas and I went to pick up some clocks that I had taken for repair. We were there for 30 or more minutes. As we were in the car to leave, Douglas commented, “He did not look at me one time”. This made an impression on me, but left Douglas with hurt feelings. He was paying attention.
