The Journey





Today I spent time in thought. I tossed around in my head and heart my purpose. Looking out over the waters of Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington pictured above, I walked for 2 miles starting at 6:45 AM and I spoke with God and I listened. I praised Him and thanked Him. I watched as the trees moved with the soft morning breeze. I listened to the birds sing their melodies. I heard Him and I felt peace. I know the plans I have for you, I heard Him. Trust Me, I heard Him. My grace is sufficient, I heard Him.

Too often we busy ourselves with menial tasks that only take us away from the goal, the purpose, His purpose. We allow outside forces to push us down and we loose power.  We become frustrated and angry then we give up.

Stop. Settle down and listen to the Master. The Manufacturer of who you are has it mapped out. Surrender your will to His and He will give you the desires of your heart, but you must first surrender. I know how you feel. Exhausted and burnt out. I too many times speak defeat into my spirit, but God in His infinite wisdom always reminds me that this battle is not mine, but His. Humble yourself or God will allow situations to cause you to be humbled. Surrender.

I encourage you to reevaluate where you are and where you desire to go. Read and meditate on God's word, the spiritual food for the soul. Submit your cares and requests to God, pray, and then listen. Get quiet. Line yourself up with His will and you will be soaring like an eagle.

Be Blessed
