It is always a joy to have SIbyl Towner with us at The Practice. On Sunday, Sibyl helped us lean into God in our brokenness. In Psalm 139, David acknowledges God that God knows him intimately. God knows David better than he knows himself, and still he has the courage to ask, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.”
Our practice Sunday night was a way of joining David’s prayer. How have we been shaped by our wounds. What false narratives have we adopted in our brokenness, and how might we lay them down and receive the beautiful truth of our identity from God?
This week, let’s continue to lay down the false narratives of our brokenness and remain in a posture to receive the beautiful truth of who we are in Christ. Sibyl often says that this journey often involves “deep, empathetic listening,” so would you be willing to find someone this week to invite into your journey. It may be a close friend or a spiritual director. Would you ask someone to listen, and would you be on the lookout for opportunities to listen to someone in your life?
