I didn’t post too much this week as I have been having some talks with God about faith and direction. Currents of faith.
I have thought about this blog and the people who visit, read and comment. I don’t know how to express my appreciation, given the number of blog sites that are available. Thank you so much. I also want to let you know how much I appreciate our differences….where we are on our walk of faith….from people deep in their faith and understanding to someone stopping by who is still spiritually seeking. All different, but in a way, the same.
Right now I’m listening to Gimme Shelter….I first listen to the Merry Clayton version (if you don’t have this version, add it to your playlist!). She was one of the back up singers on the Rolling Stones version and her vocals in that version are amazing. It is said, even the band was amazed by her when they finished the session.
Same song. Same words. Different perspective. Different reaction.
Isn’t that like our currents of faith. Same current. Similar words. Different perspectives.
My prayer for us is to be thankful for God’s direction for our current of faith. Let us communally pray and give thanks. May His current move us closer to Him and to one another. In a hurting and divided world, it is the only way I can envision peace. Getting to know one another. Shrinking divisions. Expanding what we have in common. Acceptance.
“We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.”
– Thich Nhat Han
Let us pray for God to open our hearts and realize what moments hold. Moments in which God may God us to be a gentle witness. Moments in which God may open our hearts and minds and souls to his unlimited love and grace.
