Some people called it humidity! I chose to call it God :-)

 “Trust yourself. Create the kind of self you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility, into flames of achievement.” – Golda Meir

I felt God on a busy city block from one corner to the next. I also felt him on a ½ mile nature walk. Both times my bills were due, if not overdue and my children were acting out too. I sensed while walking along minding my own business that I was not alone. My mind stopped in an instant from pondering on my overdue bills and children. I then felt the heat of the sun warming me from the inside out. For a small block of time I didn’t worry nor was I anxious about anything. I felt free to breathe in the life I wanted to live and release all my doubts, worries, disappointments, etc.

In that small moment in time my smile matched the brightness of the sun. I believed that everything that wasn’t right had been made right. When I reached the end of the city block/nature walk I had a decision to make: Will I trust the experience or would I go back to what use to be?

That walk reminded me of: Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed a dream.

As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.

Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.

For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand.

One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me.

I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

I noticed that at many time along the path of my life,

Especially at the very lowest and saddest times,

There was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.

“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,

You’d walk with me all the way.

But I noticed during the saddest and most troublesome time of my life,

There was only one set of footprints.

I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you

Never, ever, during your trials and testings.

When you saw only one set of footprints,

It was then that I carried you.”

by Mary Stevenson

Do you remember a time when you doubted yourself?

Are you able to look back on that experience and wish you had trusted your gut?

Keep in mind that it’s wise to listen to other peoples perspective but ultimately it’s YOUR decision to make! I have to admit I am so glad I chose to call it God and NOT humidity!
