Good Morning, God!
I have agreed to commit to two Spiritual Disciplines, God. One of Engagement — doing — and One of Abstinence — refraining from doing. Both are HARD. And, that is the Point, isn’t God? Rev. Collins’ sermon yesterday was about Christianity being challenging. If it isn’t “hard,” perhaps it isn’t Christianity?
So, the Idea of “challenging” myself or, as my dear mother-in-law once put it to me, of Growing Up, is creeping into my Consciousness. Aargh! Worse yet, I am certain that I need to seek Kit’s HELP in this.
Proud? Stiff-necked? Rebellious? Well, yes, we COULD use those negative descriptors, God — or, I could be more generous and say that I am a Very Slow Learner. But, I believe You are Right! I will be better served if I stick to the truth about my Old Nature, my True Nature, or my Shadow Side. Drat!
Life is a Journey — a rather long Road Trip. I can barrel ahead, as usual — or use this Time Away to Rethink and Redesign the mostly small details of My Daily Life. One thing is CLEAR — I need to ask for, and ACCEPT Kit’s help.
How fortunate I am, God, that Kit is trustworthy! Thank You!
