“The Lord God is my strength [my source of courage, my invincible army]; He has made my feet [steady and sure] like hinds’ feet and makes me walk [forward with spiritual confidence] on my high places [of challenge and responsibility].” (Habakkuk 3: 19, Amplified Bible)

We have a sure and steady support at all times. God had made us able to transcend the challenges that seem to confront us and to do it with agility and grace.

Believe this! We are always at one with God, and He is all-powerful, all-good, and wise. He has given us not only His Love, but also confidence, poise, and clarity. A “hind” in this reference is a female deer. She is able to place her back feet exactly where her front feet have stepped. This gives her the ability to run securely and not get off track. She can scale difficult terrain with ease.

We can do this as well! We have God’s progressive purpose guiding us forward. His Love is keeping us steady and safe and peaceful. His Spirit is carrying us onward and upward in the very way that is just right.

We may feel that we are clumsy and confused at times, but that doesn’t really describe you at all. With God, you are fearless and free, like that lovely doe, traversing the heights of the mountain of life confidently, triumphantly, and with eagerness and joy!

Why Your Journey Matters

Morning-Journey2

In my walk of life, I’ve learned one thing that I think is vital to keep in mind. It helps me greet others with more grace and openness and non-judgment. And it also brings out in me more confidence and conscious self-worth.

Here’s this precious idea: “Anyone’s journey is as unique and valuable as another’s journey.”

We may be proud of the lives we’ve led. Or we may feel full of regret and disappointment over our past. We might see others as having it all where we don’t. Or we might, on the other hand, think another just doesn’t have what it takes, or that they are less seasoned or wise. It may seem to us that they don’t have experiences that we can relate to or that they don’t get where we’re coming from. But all of that is judgment. And that means it is limited and limiting. When we consciously give up that habit of judging, we can see more of what is really going on and benefit from this clearer perspective.

In truth, anyone’s life experiences are only a surface presentation. What we have gone through outwardly, and what has transpired for us mentally, emotionally, and spiritually are not the same things. The series of events and circumstances aren’t who we are or what we’ve become. We are so much more.

But, on the other hand, those experiences have helped to craft the perfect you that has arrived into this day, ready for its blessings. I don’t believe that God gives us challenges, but I do think that we are today the evidence of what those challenges have cultivated in us, shaped, molded, shined up, polished, and refined. Your experiences and mine are valuable in that they have brought out in us this very glorious idea that is needed, right, and beautiful for today. It behooves us to know the grandness of that, the rightness of it, and to own our journey for what it has awakened us to, how it has informed us about who we really are, what we really love, and why we are unlike anyone else in the universe.

And then take that further by recognizing that this very same principle of Life is all around you. We all have these journeys—these spiritual journeys, really, that have connected the dots in our lives to come out with this lovely arc leading to where we are today, the rich pot of golden character at the end of our colorful rainbow. The details make for a fascinating story, and we should certainly treasure the travels of our life. But, I think that the most important thing is that we are all here in this day, with that journey bringing us to this scenic viewpoint, ready to move forward.

Everyone’s experience is worthy and precious. Each of us is on a unique path, one that we can’t escape, and that will keep guiding us home. Our lives are the special road we take in order to become more acquainted with the Truth of our being, with Love, and with our special mission and place in the grand scheme of things.

Value your story! Isn’t it funny how we often don’t think of ourselves as really having accomplished anything? Yet, we find that when we open up and tell our story to another—the human one with all its stuff and nonsense even—others find it intriguing, instructive, inspiring, even fascinating. It often takes me relating my own life events to another to see that it is actually kind of unusual and interesting! You see, we all have facets of discovery that are unlike anyone else’s, and that means our life stories with us as the main character, are truly unique and wonderfully captivating.

And, again, the point to know today is that the story up till now has put you and I at a moment of amazing possibilities. Embrace this space of opportunity. You have wisdom through your experiences. You have greater understanding and likely an even deeper conviction to live forward with more clarity on what you can do and be, and with a greater awareness of what is truly important and meaningful.

My life has been all over the map. On the face of it, it seems like I really was clueless about what I wanted from minute to minute. But when I sit still now, breathe, and reflect on it, I realize that everything was leading me to this point, and this moment is a powerful one. Being conscious of who we are, gives us power. Being aware of the unique and valuable asset that you are not only for your own life and those in your circle, but for the world, is a magnificent thing.  Your journey may veer around, but it has lead you to today’s perfect alignment of the stars, so to speak—the ideal and harmonious collaboration of ideas and experiences that is here to sing in your life and to bring something wonderful to the world as well.

And that greatness you have to offer in this moment isn’t out there on its own. Our journeys, while varied, have a quality of unity behind them. By that I mean, that our differences, when honored and expressed as God made them to be, are designed to blend beautifully, for the good of all. We each have a perfect part to play, and each of us is needed, necessary, and equally awesome.

How do we take our journeys, love them, and discover what’s next? Here’s an exercise that might help:

Write down a list of 5 or 10 high points, major choices, seminal moments, and even what you deem as low points in your life journey so far. These might compose full chapters in your life story, or just be highlighted moments in those chapters. Next to each of those, jot down one word that is your takeaway from that experience or moment. For example, what did you overcome? What is the feeling now when you think of it? What did you learn from it about yourself? What is clearer now? What word describes that whole experience to you as you reflect back on it?

Now treasure all those words, those ideas and feelings. See the small victories and growth and new awareness. Also look for fresh insights on the bigger picture of things, the theme of the story. Consciously cherish that life journey for the wisdom you may now have about it. And sit still with your amazing story, and think about what makes sense to you now. What new chapter feels like the next right thing, the heart and soul thing, the thing that makes you come to life? What makes sense right now, knowing what you know, and being who you truly are?

We can’t edit our old human story, but we can love it and learn from it. We can connect the spiritual dots and see what kind of a picture develops. Then we can pause and let our soul guide us to what makes perfect sense and let the Truth of us within guide us forward.

Your journey has only just begun! The best part is ahead of you. Know that. Believe that. Agree with the Truth of your magnificence. Choose a great next adventure, and take the first step toward it. We’re in this together, kids! Let’s make it a good day, a good life, a good world. This is our moment!

“And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us.” (II Corinthians 1: 10, New Living Translation)

God’s hand is always ready to save us. We are constantly in His sight and we can trust His readiness and His faithful care for us.

We may at times feel that we are in a hopeless situation and that there is no way out of it. But God’s power, wisdom, and Love does not see such limits. We likely can look back at other points in our lives where we felt we would be lost, and yet there was a rescue, an unexpected uplift, new opportunity, a saving gift of grace. In those times, God rescued us from that sense of despair and into gratitude.

And He will do it again. And again. And again. We can continue to place our confidence in a power beyond the human, the material and mortal beliefs about life, and be saved by the divine reality. God’s presence is ever with us and His Love is always for us. Don’t be afraid. Don’t accept the threats against your peace, no matter how aggressive they may seem. Get ready for a perfect and timely rescue!

“We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ. It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.” (II Corinthians 3: 4-5, New Living Translation)

We can accomplish amazing things! We are called to do much good with our lives. The inspired mission we each have been given, uniquely and powerfully, is not one that relies on personal experience or education or on the endorsement of others.

Our ability, our qualification to do great things, comes from God. He Himself has built us with true capacity and given us His stamp of approval. And so, we can have confidence in ourselves and our lives as we trust. God’s purpose for us comes with His wisdom, power, and guarantee of success. It isn’t about what we think we know or do not know, but about what God is and does.

We are qualified by God—by His hand in creating us and the constancy of His hand on us, supporting and guiding, as we do His work. When we seek to do good, we align with God. We are His representatives; we don’t walk into any circumstance or situation on our own. We bring with us the whole of God’s intention, His mandate, and His sure ability to carry it out.

Confidence is yours to claim. This is not bravado or arrogance. It is release, reliance, a grateful and active trust in God as the One Who called us to do magnificent things and to do them for and with and in Him—in glorious Life and powerful Love!

“…let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us, confirming the work that we do. Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!” (Psalms 90: 17, Message Bible)

We often yearn for validation, for affirmations from others that we are doing well and that we are valuable. We seek others’ approval and react to opinions that are critical or unsupportive.

But, let’s begin to look beyond the judgment of other people and gain a confirmation about ourselves and our work that is truly legitimate, valid, and strengthening. We can, as the psalmist did, seek that great smile of God to assure us in our lives. God made us for His highest purpose, and gave us everything needed to faithfully carry it out. He is pleased when we act like ourselves, like the gifted ideas that we uniquely and magnificently are.

Let God’s “loveliness”—that loving and beautiful and inspiring and beaming blessing—rest upon us. Let God’s confirming Word be what assures us of our success, our goodness, our worthiness, and that shines a light on our path going forward.

When we set aside the judgment of others and our own self-criticism, we can hear God’s voice, feel His hand guiding us, and have all the affirmation we really need to do good in the world, with satisfaction, productivity, fruitfulness, and joy.

“The Lord your God among you is powerful—he will save and he will take joyful delight in you. In his love he will renew you with his love; he will celebrate with singing because of you.” (Zephaniah 3: 17, International Standard Version)

This really is everything we could ever want or need. And it isn’t simply a wish, but the honest-to-God Truth of our lives.

God is with us and He is powerful. God is omnipotent goodness. He is actively protecting us from anything unlike Him, from anything that may appear as a threat to the reality that He has made, the kingdom of His harmonious creation. His strength and certainty is our reliance. We don’t need to be brave mortals with everything figured out. God’s confident all-power is ours to lean into everywhere. It surrounds us and supports us.

Our ever-present God also celebrates us! He sings over your very being every moment, without pause. He simply can’t cease to rejoice over you and what you so beautifully are, the very unique and precious image of His own dynamic splendor.

In his love he will renew you with his love. Here is a promise to cherish. Because of His Love and through that Love (not through human self-judgment, suffering, struggle, competition, time) we are always being renewed. God loves us each moment, so each moment we are subject to His refreshing. Divine Love baptizes, cleanses, and awakens us to our life today—the right and beautiful one we deserve, accompanied by God’s triumphant song of joy, His enthusiastic anthem for you!

“Don’t hold back. Don’t be timid. Be strong! Be confident!” (Joshua 10: 25, The Message Bible)

Yes! Let’s not be afraid or shy about how we live our lives. Let’s take this invitation to heart and choose thoughts and actions that feel free, strong, and fearless. We have a right to live without holding back, and a duty to share the gifts and inspiration that God has given to us.

This bold confidence isn’t about arrogant pushing. It really isn’t about human bravery at all. It is that conscious surrender to God’s presence, control, and power that makes all things possible. As we yield to infinite Life and Love, and recognize the divine Mind as our very own, we can live with the certainty and joy that this awareness reveals.

You are one with God and the very evidence of His nature. You are not weak and lacking, ignorant or unworthy. You are the very radiance of the sun that is God, and you emanate from that Source. The sun isn’t shy about shining. It doesn’t ask whether it is good enough. It simply beams forth, bringing light and warmth naturally to all. It is power and strength, but it isn’t at all forced.

Don’t hold back! Shine your light just as God made it to glow. Go forth into each new day knowing that you illumine it, and that Omnipotence is with you, the very Source and presence of your Life, every moment of every glorious day!
