Happy Sunday to all. I hope this day has been filled with great love and many blessings.
I spent the morning in church...then the movies (Epic) and now I am into my time of contemplation and a workout!
Again, this time has become an important part of each week of this Journey. It is a time to focus and consider God's plan for the week.
I am reading a book about being healthy emotionally and spiritually...in it, the author quotes Iraneous who said this (many centuries ago).
"The glory of God is a human being fully alive."
This really struck me when I read it. I believe God has a specific purpose and plan for me to fulfill. I believe that I am capable of living a "fully alive" life with the guidance and direction of God...I have to be willing to surrender to the plan.
I am not a good "surrenderer"...I have a tendency to fight when faced with the unknown...So there are times...when my ability to see God's plan is blurred and I just come out swinging...
So this contemplation time is my intentional effort to gain a clear view of God's plan...to be fully alive in my Journey.
That is my goal this week...to be fully alive...One Day at a Time.
Tomorrow will be a mini goal adventure of sorts...a long hike on a hot day! Prayers please!
