My words for 2014 …
Remember the movie, “While You Were Sleeping? Bill Pullman was called out for leaning in toward Sandra Bullock for a kiss.
iLeaning in said that Bill wanted closer!
Lean In was the title of book that cause a lot of buzz last year. She was an insider who shared. We read and listened because by golly, she is successful!
Honestly, aren’t we all looking for tips and hints for our lives, for our hearts?
This morning Beth Moore (video) said, “Lean in to Scriptures together.” It resonated!
Two short words that give a word picture to…
LEAN IN to the Word
LEAN IN to relationships
LEAN IN to who I love
LEAN IN to what I love
LEAN IN to GOD
Don’t be like me, a lean back kind of gal. Sceptical. Distant. Fearful. Uninterested. Don’t lean away.
It isn’t easy to let people lean in. It isn’t easy for me to lean in. When my children leaned in wanting to touch to look at whatever I was doing, I wanted them to lean back. I pushed away; they leaned in.
How many times has He wanted to lean in, but I block Him out? I want to recieve His
leaning in all the time.
I want to
with the Holy Spirit, in prayer,
to life with Him.
To lean in
like a child yearning to learn and love God. Imagine! What a life!
So there you have it…
My words for the year!
What is your word(s) for 2014? Why?
