I have done many of the things the author talks about, such as becoming apathetic toward some of my poor choices and negative attitudes. She then talked about the word "awake" being used 65 times in the Old Testament. She went through some meanings of "awake" and said it can be thought of as becoming undeceived, or having an "aha" moment. That was so cool to me, because yesterday, I did have some "aha" time from God, and he lifted a lot of anxiety I was having. We know the Bible says to be anxious about nothing. That's what we replace our false self talk with, God's Word. She gave good examples of that at the end of the chapter.
I can also identify with her ways we get distracted. I mentioned in the first post, that, as I was reading about the author liking Earl Grey tea, I was drinking some. Today, when I read about her being fond of coffee and dark chocolate, I was eating a piece of dark chocolate, which I do every day. I don't eat many other sweets, but love my dark chocolate, and my coffee is usually decaf. I do like what she said about there being nothing wrong with pleasure, as long as it is balanced, and does not become a greater treasure than our relationship with God.
Well, I better get to bed. God Bless!
