Exercising the brain is part of turning toward God
Rituals can transform our hearts and minds if they are performed with intentionality and understanding.
Tolerating discomfort can transform our brains and make us more capable of connecting with God and others.
Love holds on to the sunny day long after the clouds and rain have come. Love warms our face in the afterglow of the sun.
We must be aware of the automatic thoughts, feelings, and emotions that emerge on a daily basis with regard to God in order to understand how we truly experience Him.
Engaging our emotions in devotional exercises is the only way to begin to have a whole body transformation and truly allow God into our inner life.
We all have “representations” of relationships physically shaped in our brains. God and Jesus are represented there as well and how we cultivate that representation determines how we experience Him.
