I have been sick the past 11 days. It has not been fun. I don't get sick too often, it's probably been a few years since I have had a cold knock me out like this one did. I'm feeling better today so that is good. In my foggy-headed state, I haven't had much interest in reading my bible or praying (beyond healing prayers), so my blog has taken a backseat this week. Sorry.
Yesterday I laid on the couch and watched the movie "Eat, Pray, Love." I knew going into it that I had some reservations. I am really not interested in that buddha loving, meditation, earth-loving stuff. But I am into travel. I LOVE to travel! And this movie took me on a visual journey through Italy, India, and Bali. Seeing the world makes me stand in awe of God, of all that He has created and how incredibly creative He is! Our God is so big. It's easy to forget when you spend all your time in your small home or community. The woman in the movie took a journey to these three countries for one year. She came away with a feeling of fullness when it came to her life. The movie makes it's own insinuations but I argue to say that being with people, meeting their needs, and sharing in life is what brought her fulfillment.
God knows best what we need for a full life. John 10:10 says, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." He is our fullness... He fills us with his Holy Spirit and enables us to live out his will for our life! The key to a full life is a life filled with Christ.
