Life doesn’t add up but opens. How can it be that I’ve lived in this world for more than fifty eight years and I’m just learning what it means to be open to life. Living a life of openness and being rather than one limited by doing. Living a life always searching and acquiring rather than in the simplicity of enough.
I can only see as far into the world as I can see into myself. When I live authentically knowing the dark and light of my wholeness. Being is an invitation to see beyond myself, it changes my perspective. When I invite the Holy Spirit to be with me, my viewpoint is reframed, affecting the way I live life, ordering my priorities, my expectations, my #goals. So much of my life has been about building a career, being a mother and wife, I had little time to BE. But silence beckoned, I was open, and I’ve started the life-long journey of being. And knowing that I have everything I need within me as day by day I find the goodness of God within me.
Not that I say this because of need, for I have learned, in whatever situation I find myself, to be self-sufficient. I know indeed how to live in humble circumstances; I know also how to live with abundance. In every circumstance and in all things, I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry, of living in abundance and of being in need. I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me.Philippians 4:11-14
Lord, you invite my heart to be open and I am grateful.
