Practicing Resurrection: Step 10, Part 3

Where was God attempting to get my attention in order to show me something beautiful or love me through a child, an older person, a friend….but I was too rushed, too busy, too preoccupied to take just a moment to experience the gift of God to me?

Am I depleted, feeling unloved, playing the martyr or feeling resentful because I don’t allow myself to participate in the things that give me pleasure because I’m so busy doing other things, tending to the wheel that squeaks the most and missing what is really the most important part of my life?

At the end of the day, how would you answer if someone asked you, “So, tell me, what pleasures that God has offered you have you refused to allow yourself to enjoy?   Are they gone forever, or can you reboot and try again?

No matter what, I’m learning to bet on God’s unending mercies.  No matter how bad I feel about something I did or said at the end of the day, I’m giving myself to God, surrendering my will and my life, as well as my wrongs to his will.  I’m placing my hope in what I know is true:  Love wins.

Grace to you —

Jeanie
