For the next 6 weeks, I am traveling to Israel, Thailand, and India. I will be sharing a bit about how we're changed when we allow God to POP our American bubble.
This evening I take a flight to the adventure of a lifetime to Israel with a peacemaking organization called Israel Collective.
In this post, I share how my first night of my trip didn't just pop my bubble, it popped my ego.
It was the end of the work day and I’d had the urge to go since 1. I could see the bathroom door from my office. I was a work machine. Typing out emails as fast as I could.
You are so close to wiping this inbox clean. It’s Friday. Don’t stop. Just keep going, I coached myself.
Got a question for you.
Have you ever wanted to become more deeply spiritual, but didn't try because you were afraid you might become a weirdo? (A-hem! You know the kind… I don’t have to elaborate here.)
Or maybe you were concerned people would think you were no longer relevant.
The topic of how to live a Spirit-centered life is one that comes throughout my posts, the Real Life Journal, and my upcoming free audio course that will go live soon on iTunes.
As a studier and liver of Jesus’ teachings, I am fully subscribed to the belief system that when we follow Jesus that miracles can be a part of our real, everyday lives.
This morning I went to a 5:45 AM high interval intensive training class or as my sensei would call it, HIIT! (Fist bump.)
At one point in my life, I was her. But, this morning, I jiggled and jumped, breathing a little more heavily than I would like to admit.
My “warm-up” included literally kicking myself in the butt over and over again.
At first, it wasn’t that hard. My butt has grown a wee bit bigger lately, so it wasn’t too hard to reach. My heel went right up there with a nice slap.
Suddenly a thought occurred to me, “This is what my last year has felt like. I’ve been kicking myself in the butt over and over again.”
This is the tragic story of a loving mother who when buying Christmas presents turned into a zombie. Beware and don't be fooled by the Christmas attire.
