Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:
Imagine life as one great big tapestry, with each strand dependant on another. Some of the strands might seem quite ordinary and if they had a voice or the ability to communicate, they might express how inconsequential they feel.
Those apparently ordinary strands are vital! They give structure and depth to the whole. They hold things together in a way they don’t realise. The seemingly more beautiful strands would collapse under the weight of the whole without these “ordinary” pieces.
Stop underestimating the ordinary. Those days when you feel like you’re simply showing up, doing what needs to be done, those days give structure, depth and support to the mountain top days. You can’t live on the mountain top. You’d burn out under the weight of everything I’m doing. It would simply be too much for you to bear.
Ebbs and flows. Seasons. Time is my gift to you, remember? Yes, the older you get, the faster time seems to move but that’s an illusion. You are exactly where you need to be, right here in this moment, and nothing is ordinary when you explore and live it with me.
I simply need you to be you, with me. The rest is merely logistics when I have your heart. Show up today with me, flowing in who I created you to be. Yes, sometimes you being you will result in misunderstanding. Not everyone will catch your intentions.
Just because not everyone gets it doesn’t mean you need to throw in the towel and stop being you. Who would they have you be instead? It makes no logical sense at all for you to be anyone other than who I crafted all along.
With me though is key. The more you move through day to day life with me, the less you’ll feel like you’re “putting your foot in it”. When you step into today with me, the ordinary becomes extraordinary. Fully alive, fully human, a child of the King!
