A common question that few of us can honestly answer. I’ve asked myself this a bit lately. You see, I have come to an interesting turning point in my life, a desire to be at one with nature . In a flowing harmonious way. Does that make sense?
Let me explain……………………….
I know about the usual mundane tasks (job especially) that our daily life demands. But you/I want to really live a deep, meaningful, exciting life. So I have begun to ask many questions. Questions that I directly ask my higher power, and to me that is (GOD). To you a higher power may mean something else. Perhaps you don’t believe in one at all. It’s your choice and this is not a theology study. That being said, I do.
You know, no burning bush has ever appeared in front of me, Yet! I haven’t witnessed some great miracle (other than my mother miraculously recuperating) for which a different post is in order. Back to that later. I just keep asking for guidance and in a grateful way, having faith that the answer will come. ” Faith is trust, hope and belief in the goodness or trustworthiness, of a person, concept or entity.” according to a Wikipedia definition. Trust me, I need more. And I find that by acting as if I do have some, no matter how much that is, perhaps the size of a mustard seed, it grows! “Fake it till you make it” comes to mind.
I just continue to try to do the next right thing. And continue to ask questions. Continue to “believe” that answers will be revealed. I try not to get frustrated/impatient as I go along. Trust me, not always easy for me especially. I just do my part.
So his past Saturday as I drive to visit friends and see a concert, up ahead I am drawn to a writing on the back of an 18 wheeler.
This is what it said:
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
I don’t know about you, but to me, this was Fantastic!! Out of nowhere to just look up and see that, was AWESOME!
This by no means is a final answer. Just a means to let me know, to have faith.
I continue down this path. I continue to ask. I continue to believe!
Has anything like this happened to you?
I’d like to hear about it.
