Day 13: Dare to Come Alive
Dear His Beloved,
I wonder what makes you come alive? It may seem trivial or insignificant or even wasteful of time, but yet it stirs something in the deeps of you to life??? Does something come to mind?
I believe we are differently connected to the Creator. Some of us are moved by music and others by art. Some awaken by the aromas their hands have cultivated while dabbling in the kitchen. Some find great joy from digging in fresh ground planting seeds to harvest the next season or perhaps by making their landscape inviting to the birds. Some find it in nature and others in feet pressed to the asphalt on an early morning run.
The journey to Him is more than coming to a place of great knowledge but also a place of great awareness. He gets joy when we embrace the space He has given us. Remember His initial plan was for us to walk in the garden with Him. The garden was a place of freedom and enjoyment. Adam and Eve would find delight in His creation and in His presence and in communing with their Creator.
If beauty is from Him and joy is from Him and freedom is from Him, then we can enjoy the moments that bring us to life. Perhaps you can invite Him into this space. Cook with Him, dance with Him, read to Him, write with Him, plant with Him, invite Him into the Hammock, Invite Him into the shed, invite Him into your life.
Enjoy this Sunday by doing something that makes you come alive.
In His Grip,
