Do You Forget God Is Within You?

God is love (1 John 4:8).

God is within me.

When I forget this, I live in fear and worry.

I am afraid to take on new tasks and afraid to experience unfamiliar things.

I lack confidence.

When I forget that God is love and God is within me, I often make the wrong choices.

Or I make no choice.

I freeze.

I stop movement forward.

I procrastinate.

I complain.

I blame others.

I’m unhappy.

As soon as I remember that God is within me, though, I no longer have any reason to fear.

I am free—free to explore.

I am free to experience life, free to love and be loved.

Contemplation, Fitness, and Fasting: Take the Christian Wellness Challenge

Take advantage of a unique opportunity. My friend Cornelius Swart is conducting a study on the impact that spiritual practices like Centering Prayer and plant-based Christian fasting have on wellness. As part of a grad school project for the Vancouver School of Theology, Cornelius is looking for people to enroll in a free 8-week program. Participants will measure their wellness before and after the program using tools like the Princeton UMatter Wellness survey. More details here.
