The 30 Days -Mind of Christ Experiment has reached the end. However, truly this is only the beginning. Christ continually works in our lives to show us how to live.
So many of you shared your struggles and triumphs along the way.Change can be painful but when Christ is the silversmith, we know we will be gleaming when the dross is melted away.
Today is a day to celebrate and worship Jesus for what He has done in the lives of those on the journey. If I didn't include your triumph, please, please write it in the comments and I will post them tomorrow for all those who read SUM through a subscription service.
If you struggled and you find it difficult to read these, I truly understand and realize God may be working slowly in your life. Feel free to add what you DID get from this journey.
I love you all. I was deeply inspired by your heart for Jesus. Okay, so here we go:
If this is what God can do in us when we give him complete control for 30 days, imagine what our entire lives can be when we give him every day! Lord Jesus, you are our BLISS! We get it now. We want to walk in that bliss everyday. Please make this 30-day sampling a craving in our hearts and minds that directs every day of our lives. Jesus, we belong to YOU! In your holy name, amen!Posted by: Dineen Miller
Jesus died for me, Bonnie. It's not shivers down my back, it's my whole body quivers. How much is wrapped up in that little statement. There is much humility in that statement - it's not about me but it's about what Jesus was willing to do and give up because we matter so much to Him. My brain wants to wrap around it but still can't quite do it. Thank God He's brought my heart to a place that can. I would be lost without Him. Thank you for inviting me in to walk with you all this last month. I'm like you - I can't believe it's almost over, either. Amazing. Incredible. Transforming.Posted by: Bonnie
This 30th day journey Yes like you Dineen i also i want to shed tears and indeed shout HALLELUJAH for all He brought to the surface and let me persevere.....
PAIN YES alot......let go of things...giving up control WANT TO acknowledge and be depended on HIM and Him alone in EVERY DETAIL of my life.....
The more i see i cling to something is the thing i must let go and i can only let go by bringing it at His feet and He will carry me and learn me to let it stay there......
WOW i really am a work in progress..but i can shout hallelujah...He saves and raise me up ..every dead place in my life...bit by bit... Thxs Dineen and each of you who who was on this journey and each of your prayers..... Blessings Posted by: Bernice
Dear Angela, The Lord has anointed your writing indeed! I loved all that you have shared, you have such wisdom. I am thankful the good Lord hasn't just thrown up His hands at me but continues to refine, sometimes in gentleness and sometimes in fire. Thank you for sharing-you are a blessing.
Lynn you know this has been an absolutely spectacular thing for me. I have been in this place the last few days of facing where I really am right now, and just... wow... I love that God loves honesty from His people, because if not... i just don't know. As He and I have been spending time together, He's impressed me that this journey for me isn't done yet. Even after the 30th day, I will continue on pursuing His heart in an ever deeper way, until He says I am ready to move forward. I have been praying daily that He reign and not I. This is really good stuff! I do believe there is so much power in what we've been doing here. Can't wait to hear what others have received from it all.Love you girl!
