Tonight, I am tired. My heart is heavy. I am plagued with uncertainties. I am doing my best to put my faith squarely where I know that it belongs – in the One who died for me.
Tonight I am not able to write my own thoughts well. So – though it may be a cop-out, I share with you this quote from Steve Jobs. Regardless of the things he may have done poorly, in this I think he was an expert:
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” –Steve Jobs

First – sending hugs to R. is the first order of business.
Secondly I hear these words over and over in my head.
Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden – and I will give you rest.
And lastly – a cop-out by the good ol’ Thesaurus means – ‘to avoid”
You my friend have done quite the opposite in writing this blog!
I think it is a “cop-in” -> You just put it out there – this is “who I am” and this is “who I need” – The ONE!
Thanks Vicki – hugs and blessings to you.
Hello Beautiful Spirit …
Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from. Elizabeth Kübler-Ross
There is always sunshine after the storm Rebekah, your heavy heart and uncertainties are merely opportunities to stop, listen, think and grow. Sometimes growing is painful, and we ask ourselves why, but we are always better for it in the end.
My prayers to the Divine will ask for your worries and concerns to be placed in a cloud to allow for a soft landing when resolution arrives.
Loving God, your child Rebekah is hurting, please reach out and wrap her in your loving embrace. I understand that sometimes you let us hurt and let us work out the answers on our own, as this is part of your gift of grace. We ask that your Holy Spirit lighten the burden in her heart and by your wisdom, help Rebekah to work through her uncertainties. Amen.
With Much Love and Hugs,
Thanks JT! Your prayer is beautiful and has blessed me beyond my ability to express.
