There is an urgency within
which pulls at my skin,
leading me forth
into the mysterious newness ahead.
I’ve been germinating.
The rest allowed has given
the necessary space and freedom
to review the landscapes –
and offer each
to be placed into the heart of God.
Sure, there are mixed feelings attached.
But each place travelled
has provided the necessary nutrition
for the current unfolding.
I have found that
the more I let go and allow for
a larger view of things,
the more freedom there is
for my unique soul
to be connected to
God and my true belonging.
This lightens –
and allows for the reach up and out.
There really are no problems!
It is counter-intuitive, in a way –
but the more I let go,
the more I can be present for others
and actually be helpful –
So, I choose to be here –
as rocky as the ground can be…
I choose joy.
I choose love.
I live gratefully.
And when the memory of this lapses,
I forgive the pull of distraction,
and begin again.
We can always start over.
This is the beauty of
God is the focus.
There is always hope
and healing is here.

The presence of God needs to fill the space where you seem to be for healing to happen.

Ask yourself, who would I be if there were no problem?
