2022 Is Here, Are You Lost Yet?

The calendar has turned over to 2022, whether we welcome in the new year or not it is now here. It is indifferent to our feelings, our wants, our desires, and our needs. Time marches on as the hands on the clocks tick endlessly on until the batteries run down and the motor stops.

Is this a metaphor for our lives? Our lives move on, whether we do or not, until our batteries run down until we are faced with our own deaths and our life’s ending.

With everything going on in our world today, we can often feel lost. Maybe we need to intentionally get lost? Turn off the electronics and away from the incessant noise of social media and the news.

3 Tips – Get, Go, and Grab!

  • Get outside into nature, put on a coat and hat if its cold, and turn off the notifications on your phone. Trust me you’ll be okay. πŸ˜‰
  • Go somewhere you’ve never been before and really look at what is in front of you. Especially if you don’t know where you are. 😎
  • Grab someone you love and hold them tight. Feel their breathing and listen for there heartbeat. That is what’s important. 😚

Here’s to a great tomorrow!

I reckon it is time to be moving on today and see what adventure lies ahead. πŸ‘Š

  • What do you do to rediscover yourself?
  • Do you ever feel the need to get lost?

Even Jesus went away to be alone, and I find that nature has a way of healing my soul. The world, at least the news, tells us that everything is in disarray and chaotic. And at times it can be, it is then that we must re-center and discover ourselves again. What works for you?

Carrying Swords

Sometimes life just is.

Sometimes there are no answers.

Sometimes all we can do is…

  • Believe
  • Be faithful
  • Stand strong
  • Cherish the time
  • Choose to trust
  • Have mercy
  • Love

For in the end it is often not the weapon we chose to carry that defeats our enemy. Within our heart and soul a true warrior carries the Sword of the Spirit that forever is able to vanquish our enemies, in the name of Yeshua!

Yahuah is a warrior; Yahuah is His name.

Heading into 2021 “Like a Boss!”

We are now four days from the year 2021 and putting 2020 in our rear view mirrors. A fresh start so to speak and the choice is ours. Each and everyone of us. Christmas is over, the wrapping paper should be all cleaned up and the tree… well some may have already drug it out of the house, dried pine needles falling everywhere. So here we are and the question I pose to you is …

What are your plans for 2021?

If nothing else, I suggest you face each day of the new year like a boss! Take charge of your life, live your dreams and don’t let anyone else take that away from you. I believe in you! You have four days to get your sh– together, prepare and be ready. It’s coming, now go …

Do You Really Think You Are In Control?

Lyrics from the song ‘There Was a Life’ from the TSO album Night Castle

As we face tightening restrictions due to COVID-19 all over the world, the US and the state in which I live, the lyric above got me to thinking about how much we really have no control over. We spend so much time and energy trying to control things in our lives. We schedule and plan out our tightly controlled days and when it does not go according to plan, what then?

So much is happening outside of our control:

  • There are waves crashing on beaches that no sees.
  • There are flowers blooming on high mountain tops of snow.
  • There are packs of wolves running across ridge lines in forests unseen.
  • There are trees bending from the force of the winds and weather.
  • There is birth, life and death happening all around us.

What is happening around you for which you have no control? #WickedQuestions

For the sake of our own sanity and mental health, we must learn to detach from that over which we have no control. To trust in a good outcome, to hope in a better tomorrow, and a better future for those who come behind us.
