Yes, I am still reading. I'm enjoying it, even though it's a really different conversation than what I am used to, I think it's a good way to address some really big questions within myself!
Faith just hasn't been a big part of my life, but I have come to the conclusion that I do believe in God, and that I am on board with the concept of being created by God for God.
It's not all about me is a powerful lesson to learn. I've always thought that, to some extent--I just haven't necessarily thought it was about God. But I know from watching my parents raise my sister, who is 14 years younger than I am, that the single best thing they did during her childhood was let her pursue horseback riding. Caring for her horses really shaped her life. She was responsible for these big beasts and built her days around that and I could really see how it gave her so much more character and an outward focus--instead of me, me, me...so that was kind of a baby less on in that for me.
Now I'm struggling through more with the thoughts on how to incorporate God more into my life. I just read the chapter last night about talking to God all day, and including him in your thoughts, and that resonated with me. I can talk, for sure!
