I just found a journal from a few years ago, filled with my daily thoughts and little whispers from God. It was a book I started writing before COVID shut us down. I thought I’d dust it off a bit and dribble these thoughts out occasionally. I hope they bring you strength.
I’m afraid, God; afraid that I don’t have the skill, the tenacity, or a strong enough vision to see my dream of creating a better world all the way through. A world in which love and truth reign. Where raw power and projection are not the main characteristics of politicians. Where hate and destruction are no longer the tools people see as necessary to change things.
I see a world in which people feel empowered by their own visions of goodness, freedom and fulfillment. I see a world in which those people are so committed to those visions that the energies around us are lifted to a place of love, joy, goodness, peace and wisdom, leaving the darkness to fall behind.
I’m seeing a vision of the Wicked Witch of the West (from the Wizard of Oz) having the cool water of freedom and reason tossed on her as she fades into nothing, crying, “I’m melting; I’m melting.”
Then, I stopped and listened for God to opine and this is what I heard in the depths of my heart:
“That vision is not only doable, but it is my very own. I will be with you every step of the way. Breathe, trust and follow your dream.” G
Action step: Take a few minutes to pour your heart out to God. Then stop and listen for what he has to say.
