I love stories and yet all too often I forget them, which is why I have kept a journal since the age of 9. It is not that my life has been super 'happening', or 'instagramable'. It's just that I've always felt like my life was somehow special because Jesus and his father keep finding me in dreams. Random and insanely transforming thoughts seem to pop in my head at strangely opportune times, and acts of great kindness often envelope me.
And yet, my life has not been easy. I've made terrible choices, been through major disabilities, suffered trauma and loss. The difference is that even though I have often lost sight of him, he has never lost sight of me. And while my soul still has many wild places, it is slowly becoming a garden in which I can find him. This blog is an invitation to you into glimpses of my soul, so that perhaps you too might see him the way I do...
It'll be fun!
"It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest most uninteresting person you can talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare.
All day long we are, in some degree helping each other to one or the other of these destinations.
There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit - immortal horrors or everlasting splendors."
- C.S. Lewis
Call to Action
The keys to great breakthrough lie in the stories of your past. Bringing to remembrance those moments of imprint, however significant or insignificant they may seem, are an invitation to journey deeper into who you truly are. The more you embrace who you are, standing unashamed without any need to cover up, the closer to life you find yourself. It is this vulnerability that makes life worth living. Instead of trying not to die, discover what it means to truly live. All are chosen as gods and goddesses, yet it remains to us to choose back.
