Whether we call it surrendering to God, life, or the universe… “the mean time, the in between time” is the space of preparational time.
We consciously participate with life whenever we adhere and heed lessons learned via events, challenges, and a host of other circumstances. These are the portals (if you will) that assist our alignment for the thing that is to come.
Surrendering…that of entrusting all concerns into the care of The One Who has all to do with all things. Trusting the process of such, well…is surrendering. ~Stormie Steele
The challenge (whatever it may be), is not meant to discourage – rather, its appointment is meant to encourage character, to strengthen faith & wisdom. Don’t be afraid of the challenge. ~Stormie Steele

How far are you willing to travel? Faith is an adventure into the unknown over and over again.
Into the unseen – faith lures me elsewhere…over and over again.
Faith is an adventure into the unknown over and over again.
“Faith is hard. (Don’t try and convince yourself otherwise . . . it’s a losing battle.) And the difficult truth about faith is that it won’t answer all of your questions in life and it won’t solve all of your problems, either. Faith is about trust, not about being certain . . . and that’s not how we hoped faith worked.” ~Cherie Hill
How far are you willing to travel?

It’s interesting how negatively we can think of others – yet, give little thought to how we portray ourselves when we speak those thoughts.
Unforgiveness is a distraction from spiritual & personal development. Many of us have been challenged with unforgiveness – there are many lessons that can be learned through its harsh impact on our emotions. Namely, being accountable for our own emotional welfare.
Forgiveness does not condone offenses, it empowers us with ownership & responsibility for our well-being.
Are you taking care of your well-being?

To lose oneself in enormity or lack is a sad state of being. Furthermore – to define oneself by enormity or lack is a case of mistaken identity…even sadder.
No doubt our experiences impact our lives in multiple ways, yet – to lose ourselves (convictions, consciousness, conscience) through our life’s travels/experiences is an indication of great misunderstanding. ~Stormie Steele
We are sure to repeat any lesson that’s taught in the classroom if learning has not taken place…learning through daily living is no different.
“How many books can I read?”, a student might ask. The teacher usually responds kindly with, “As many as you want, but I will ask you about EVERY story that you read.”. We all know what the teacher was looking for right? Here it comes, the big “C” word – COMPREHENSION! I laugh as I write, because I too was one of those students EXCITED about reading lots & lots of books! I loved learning (still do), yet I was met with hesitation & fear about being asked about the details of my adventures in reading. COMPREHENSION was such a BIG word, I wasn’t sure if my answers would meet my teacher’s satisfaction.
Life asks of us no less as we travel through our daily experiences -“What are you learning?, What did you get from that experiences?, Is the situation healthy or unhealthy? What role are you playing?, What is the moral of the story?”
When each question is answered with affirming conviction – one that demonstrates an understanding, followed by the application of wisdom within our daily affairs, it’s clear that we are learning – COMPREHENDING. If we are CLUELESS, as we all have been at times, we take the course again. Perhaps our attention span is lacking in focus.
As we pay attention to our choices, to the stories or experiences that we create – the characters woven around us & the morals that they produce (or lack thereof) – we gain a better perspective on the importance of LEARNING. COMPREHEND?
“Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance.” ~Proverbs 1:5 (ESV)
I am open to learn through my daily choices – through questions, examination & application~
I learn more of myself as I interact with life, and with those within my life~
I am focused on gaining information/insight from my experiences~
Are you asking questions of yourself…are you learning?
