Midweek Message March 12, 2014

This journey I have chosen has been a major change in many ways.  Not just learning to drive such a big rig, or how to live in a small space, or the challenges that come from not having a steady income.  It has been an exercise in testing my faith.

I told someone recently that turning my life upside down has helped me reconnect to my HP.  I have discovered that when my life is going well, I tend to coast regarding my faith.  It is similar to learning to ride a bike.  We have our father or someone hold on until we feel balanced and then as soon as we feel we have it, we take off.  We often don’t even give much thought to the help we got to get started.  Off we go, riding our bike, going here and there, and not feeling like we need any more help or any more push.

So, too, it is in life.  When things are difficult we seek the help of a HP to push us to where we want to go.  When we get there we believe we have it made and so off we go, on our own, sometimes never remembering that how we got there was with the help from Spirit.  Doing something challenging or new brings us closer to the God of our understanding because it reminds us that we cannot do “it” alone.

Here is what I know to be true for me – this journey brings me experiences unimagined, places not yet seen, and challenges and gifts unexpected – and the realization that I cannot do it alone.  I have to strengthen my connection to God for this and for that I am truly grateful.


Quote of the Week

Things can fall apart, or threaten to, for many reasons, and then there’s got to be a leap of faith. Ultimately, when you’re at the edge, you have to go forward or backward; if you go forward, you have to jump together.

Yo-Yo Ma

In One Spirit,
