Moving from Thought to Feeling
The trip from the head to the heart is not an easy trek; it is filled with detours and land mines and, strangely enough, incredible freedom. It is in this personal experiential part of the journey that we discover the meaning of true freedom in Christ. Think about it: Faith as belief ONLY has very little power.

To quote Marcus Borg—We can believe all the right things and still be mean-spirited; we can believe all the right things and still be miserable; we can believe all the right things and still be in bondage; we can believe all the right things and still be relatively untransformed. Faith is more than that. It is borne through one’s EXPERIENCE of God, not knowledge about God.
