“Be Still, and Know that I am God”
Lent 2021 was a powerful one. Lent 2022 even better but let’s circle back to how 2021 set up the foundation. Using all of my Spiritual Gifts, everyday, brought about tuning into the unknown, like nobody’s business.
This drawing here is a spin off of, “The Flame of Love.” The book was given to me and then I passed on two copies. One was placed in the community park library and one was given to someone that I met while visiting Eric’s grave.
Suffering is real and very apparent everywhere we look. Nothing and no one is exempt from it. So I ask myself daily, how can I help lessen it all and change it all to love, self worth, happiness, kindness, compassion, empathy, laughter, joy, gratitude and surrendering to the Grace of God? The answer is simple. Be one with God’s Grace.
How do we become one with God’s Grace? You may be rolling your eyes and wanting to dismiss what I am about to say but if you are here, you are meant to keep reading.
We each have something or someone in our lives that catapults us into Grace, but only if we allow it to. We just have to be willing to accept it. Everything we need in our own life is right in front of us, and inside of us. What is outside mirrors the inside, if we only have the eyes to see it, to recognize it and to embrace it. This is Universal Truth. We simply have to open the blinds within our own minds, hearts and souls. Each and every one of us, depending on the time and place we are given to live, has a responsibility to this life. Some have more than others and some maybe just a second of existence is given. Even this second has ripples. Even this one second changes destiny. Even this one second, defines your path. This second of existence can come in waves of words. What is spoken is alive. What is spoken changes time and space. It all matters.
Think about this. It took one second for Eric to lose control of his car and die. One second.
One second changes everything.
So I ask you, what are you allowing yourself to see?
What are you allowing yourself to accept?
What are you allowing yourself to be?
I have joined my brother, Eric, in his Promise. This is what I have allowed this one second to become. This is what this one second will always be. Although tragic, it is purely God’s Grace. Tap into the Sacred with that one second in your own life. Grow it into something of love, of grace, of kindness and of purpose. You owe it to yourself and those that have come before us and those that will live after us. We are each paving a path for something. Let it be Light.
Amen. So it remains, forevermore.
Eric’s sister, Melissa
