It's been great to listen again to the messages from REAL. I love listening back as I find that God often speaks to me again, sometimes in different ways, or perhaps really underlining something I heard in a conference.
When a conference is over, It's always a challenge to act on the word, rather than just hearing the word.
This year I began straight away with a Journal of thankfulness.
On the Sunday at Kerith, Kim read from her own journal.
She started writing it in response to her plea to God "What are you doing in my life TODAY, Lord?"
So I too have started a journal, recording and remembering the hand of God TODAY.
The first day included note of a lovely encouraging letter I received from a friend, time with a family member speaking honestly and openly, the honeysuckle in the garden flowering for the first time ever, and also an iced latte and slice of Red Velvet Cake - all blessings for which I thanked God.
I know this is going to be good for me, good for my focus (on Him, not me) , and good for my prayers and conversations, as I increasingly become more aware of His hand in my life.
My daily prayer is "I am looking for one small cloud, Lord" ( Beth Moore, re Elijah)
I'd love to know, what did God say to you, and what have you done with the teaching you heard at REAL, since REAL?
