Good morning, HeldOne,
Walking through the love-grass, on cattle trails yesterday afternoon placed me right back in the center of the loving heart of God Most High.
Walking this beat of life is not always a trail of birthday cake and balloons. This is why we practice, DearOne. For times like these … you don’t need to be able to release, until you need to release. You don’t need to be unshakable, until you need to be unshakable. You don’t need to call in your cache of kindness, or resilience, or trust, until you’ve used up everything else.
This is why even when we are rockin’ smooth across life’s waters we make sure we are in the Word, seeking the face of God, sharing our hearts with like-hearted souls. We keep eating healthy, call our loved ones, pray for healing in the tiniest torn places. We keep close to The Almighty.
Because, that day comes – whether your spiritual bank is empty or full, that life will strike you to your knees. You will take a hit.
It might be a once in a lifetime tragedy, or a nagging slow leak.
You will need to go deeper into the stores of your heart, call upon your spiritual army-the unseen fighters right in front of you – to help you rise.
Your smooth sailing will be disturbed. And, you will need to expand by your reserves.
This is why you and I practice – so when life says, “who are you and what are you made of?” You have your infallible answer:
“I am God’s child. Held by the Creator of the Universe. He directs my steps.”
Wake up. Practice again. Go.
