God's Eye's

Can you imagine being sent out intorepparttar wilderness for forty years like Moses? If Moses would have lived his life up until then differently would God have spared himrepparttar 148417 discomfort? Was God trying to prove some point to Moses by making an example of him? What can we learn about this story?

When wasrepparttar 148418 last time you drove downrepparttar 148419 road with outrepparttar 148420 radio in your ears? When wasrepparttar 148421 last time you just listen to your kids, your spouse or a friend and not said two words? When wasrepparttar 148422 last time you just stopped and listened torepparttar 148423 coffee pot making coffee early inrepparttar 148424 morning? Whether by design, life or nature most of us during our lives have built up barriers (walls) in our minds and around our hearts. By doing so most will never reachrepparttar 148425 full potential of what God has for their lives. Inside each of us are minds of brilliance and hearts of gold. Yet it’s our walls that prevent us of experiencing life seen through God’s eyes.

Over time with life’s up’s and down’s and disappointments from others we harden like walls of cement. Our walls have been constructed to protect us from fear. Fear of failure, fear of success, fear of expectations. Our rooms become smaller and our thinking becomes stale. A good example of this is children. The bible says, “Child like faith.” Children have no fear. They walk right up to a strangers and have a conversation, with out thinking they will take a leap off a table to get torepparttar 148426 couch.

As adults, why do we find it so hard to get back torepparttar 148427 simple things in life? Why is it so hard to quiet our minds? Have we become so scared of realizing who we have become that we fill our heads up with meaningless things? Hasrepparttar 148428 walls of our hearts been built right before our blinded eyes? I started a new company in May of this year with a friend of mine. About a month ago we happened to be talking in our lecture hall. I said to her, “Somewhere within these four walls is a million dollar idea. The question is, “Are we willing to look for it, and are we willing to ask God for help guiding us to it?” In other words, “what if these walls could talk?”

A beautiful mind is a simple mind!!

Inrepparttar movie “A Beautiful Mind” John Nash (played by Russell Crowe) is a schizophrenic math genius who struggles with is inability to have peace of mind. In one scene he bangs his head onrepparttar 148416 window until it bleeds begging his mind to slow down, allrepparttar 148417 while having a conversation with his imaginary room mate Charles.

Now hopefully none of us are schizo (and if you are keep it to your self) but at end ofrepparttar 148418 summer we all could probably bang our heads against a wall wanting to quiet our minds and take a break. By nowrepparttar 148419 kids are going back to school, to many chicken breasts onrepparttar 148420 grill andrepparttar 148421 daily down pours and humidity is making life crazy. In a funny wayrepparttar 148422 last thing on our mind butrepparttar 148423 thing we want most is just a little peace and quiet.

While such a simple act, Jesus newrepparttar 148424 importance of quiet time. There are numerous accounts inrepparttar 148425 bible of Jesus just going into total solitude and prayer for rejuvenation. To bad we all don’t have forty days to spare. For most we just can’t seem to get a moment alone. Kids, jobs, errands you name it,repparttar 148426 demands of life are relentless. Do you know after a twenty year study they
