We have traveled a ways together, beginning with an emphasis on intimacy, moving on to cultivate a greater attentiveness to and dependence on God.
How has he been speaking to you? Have you sensed Him giving you greater space in life to connect with Him so that you can press deep into the heart of the Savior?
We have one final 10-day segment to delve into: Release... which is just what we want to do in light of all the ways Jesus has been moving in our lives.
To pray is nothing more involved than to lie in the sunshine of His grace, to expose our distress of body and soul to those healing rays which can, in a wonderful way, counteract and render ineffective the bacteria of sin. To be a man or woman of prayer is to take this sun-cure, to give Jesus, with His wonder-working power, access to our distress night and day. -- O. Hallesby

Luke 7:44-46: Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet."
Observe the ways the woman responds to the forgiveness of Jesus. Make applications to your life.
