Day 4 – Being All There on a Deeper Level

One Month to Love!
This was an awesome book, check out my review and I wanted to share with y’all the “important” parts to me. This is by far not what the whole book is about, but just a glimpse of what I thought was catching, or needed to be shared. I will be going through each day, as this will be sorta like my “journal”.

There are 4 weeks involved:
Week 1: The Art of Being All There
Week 2: The Art of Acting Intentionally
Week 3: The Art of Risking Awkwardness
Week 4: The Art of Letting Go

Day 4 of Week 1: Being All There on a Deeper Level

Level

I see her everyday, and always for the first time. ~Jean Racine

The question is not what you look at but what you see. ~Henry David

Maybe one or more of the three key relationships in your life have stagnated because you’ve been so obsessed with your own problems that you haven’t stopped long enough to see the pain in the other person’s eyes.

Understand that what each of us presents publicly tends to mask what’s going on deep down inside.

If you really want to be a good friend, a true husband or wife, or a loving brother or daughter, you’ll care enough to look and listen for what someone is wrestling with underneath.

“Cast the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” 1 Peter 5:7

Lasting Love Relationship Challenge
1) Spend some time alone thinking about the people you’ve been together recently. What was said? What wasn’t said that might suggest a deeper need?
2) What things have you kept hidden inside yourself? Is there a revelation about yourself you’re willing to share with someone you trust? Others will often open up if you do.
3) Take a second look at someone this week in your workplace, neighborhood, or school whom nobody (including you) really notices. How could you make that individual feel noticed and valuable?

In case you missed it:
Day 1 – The Most Important Thing
Day 2 – Face to Face
Day 3 – Zoning In
