I am a serious evaluator. I evaluate everything we do as a church and everything I do as a person of God. I seek to see what works and what did not. I seek to see how I can change or how I can help change a situation.
Reflection is a whole other matter. Reflection is about looking into the person I am, a glance inside to the spiritual me and seeing that through the eyes of the Lord. Reflection; for me this is hard work. It takes time and being still. I seem to have little time (perhaps I am too busy evaluating things) and being still is not one of my best attributes.
Having evaluated the situation I see that to be the best follower of Christ I can be I need to be better at spending time in quiet reflection, allowing God to speak to me, instead of me speak to him.
This is one of my goals over these forty days and the days that follow.
