Sometimes we meander through airports, dodging out-of-control children, running parents trying to catch up with their out-of-control children, trolleys, cleaners, late passengers, coffee-spills, body odors from those that take up residence there, and people who feel quite comfortable standing in the middle of a walkway to yap on their mobiles. And just like we may meander through airports, some of us also meander through life. Unsure, up and down, happy, sad, strong, weak, and just all over the place. We think we must go this way because Kim Kardashian says so, or the other because all our friends approve, or to your parents because you don’t like making hard decisions yourself, or simply brainwashed by the ‘cool’ and ‘awesome’ acceptable ways of our illustrious ‘TV-People’.
Everybody THINKS they know what’s best for you. But they don’t! And you shouldn’t continue meandering and being pulled to and fro’ any longer. There is something; someone greater than any blown-up reality star, fab suberbowl commercial or Grammy screaming artist can offer you. Who better to know your clear path in life than your creator; the supreme being that knew you before you knew yourself? If you put him first you won’t have to feel unsure or afraid. You won’t have to waste precious time worrying about people that don’t value you the same. Or spend time with those who only want to take instead of share. You will be able to see things much more clearly, and with gratefulness and joy when rubbish, clutter and the un-necessary is eliminated from your life.
When you develop this kind of trust, your senses are heightened and you’re given the noblest, truest, and purest, comfort, joy and peace. Only accepting calls and messages from a divine source. One that loves truly, respects and never lets you down. You gain the trust to walk in a straight line, sure of where you are needed to go. And the people that cross your path, are just that; someone crossing your path. For stars shine bright and fall, but the sun, the moon and the lake lasts forever…
Lent is not just about giving up things to give up things. Instead give up bad habits. Have some love and respect for yourself. Follow the lead of the one that knows you best. Trust in him and have rebirth in your journey through love. Changing your path to exactly where you’re needed to be! J
