Greeting Friends & Family —
I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. It is the theme song to the TV show, Star Trek: Enterprise. With all the spare time I have now with COVID-19 I have been watching some shows online that I had never seen before. I must say that the timing of hearing this song and the poem I posted earlier are not mere chance. I believe with all my heart that the Holy Spirit is working together with God and Jesus for my good. Recently, I made a decision to be more proactive and resilient when it comes to life, specifically my life. I am choosing to live, learn and grow in ways that I never imagined possible. I have largely been living and looking forward while carry most of the weight of my past with me. On some level I convinced myself that I must bare the weight of all past mistakes even if they were not my fault alone. I am good at forgiveness when it comes to others but rarely extend it to myself. Recently, this misguided logic hit me hard and I could not ignore it any longer! I had been placing my judgment above God’s, how dare I! I was so wrong! As humans, it is inevitable that mistakes will be made. That is the ugly truth. God does not have an expectation of perfection from us, He created us. He loves us.
Ecclesiastes 7:20, “Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.”
Philippians 3:12-15, “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you.”
James 3:2, “For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body.”
Due to the COVID-19, I’m spending a lot of time alone, this is both a blessing and a curse. I have been cooking, cleaning, decorating, planting, blogging, relaxing, reading to mention a few.
The best advice I could offer anyone is to be in relationship with your Creator, get to know yourself and together create a plan to become the person you were created to be. YOU ARE SO LOVED!
Here’s the poem I mentioned earlier…
Continue to practicing social distancing, good health and hygiene habits! 😊
