I will be adding stories, poems & reflections as the year marches on. Take a gander today!
|I do not like my life right now. I do not like it at all.
You know what you need to do?
Yes, I need to forget about my assignment here and move away!
You volunteered for this assignment, remember?
I did not know it would be HERE. I do not like this place. I am miserable.
You need to reframe your thoughts on the matter. You need to see this as an adventure. That's what it is, you know. This assignment is an adventure. See it like that and you will succeed! The harvest is ready. You are here to reap what others have sown!
I have been so many places where I would have liked to put down roots. This is the one place I did not want to do that at all.
This is the place I have chosen for you to work. This is the place that needs you and your unique and special gifts.
So, what exactly do I need to do here?
Like the farandolae in Charles' mitochondria, you just need to put down roots. When you are rooted and grounded in this community, amazing things will happen. You just need to settle down and mind your business.
I have been trying but I am seeing very little progress.
You need to walk by faith and not by sight. You know that! Act on the knowledge that you have. I have given you all you need to accomplish the task at hand. You can do this. With me strengthening you, you can do all that you need to do to fulfill this assigment—your climatic, crowning task. It should be a labor of love. Let my love fill you and flow through you...
I need to spend more time with you. I get sidetracked and distracted by so many things. If I would just spend time with you, it would be easier. When I am in your presence I feel peace and joy—a peace and joy that does not depend on the circumstances in my life. A peace and joy that emanates from you.
You know, in reality, I am always with you. Hide yourself in me and you will remain in my peace. My yoke is easy and my burden is light. It is only when you try to do things without my power that you find yourself being heavy-laden. Come into me and I will give you rest. Keep you mind on me and on my teachings and I will keep you in perfect peace.
