ISF20061017 Spiritual Formation: Disciplines From the Heart in the Spirit and not from the Flesh Part 1
Heart--Religious aspects; Discipline--Religious aspects
What is necessary is the purging of the soul, purging of the places where we're filled with ourself, to be opened up to God so that he can take us into deeper places in our life in neediness, brokenness. Now, you know what does that, that I saw very clearly in my life, that's trials. Trials do that. And so I can imagine clearly a person who just in God's sovereignty experiences so many trials that that becomes an incredible place and opportunity for opening our expectations, our desires, our false hopes and attachments, and taking us into greater neediness
