“What if we could lean back into the arms of Spirit and trust the future?” — J.L. Huie
It’s so easy to fall off the road, isn’t it? To run into problems with health, relationships, finances, everyday stressors, and go to that place of anxious confusion. It’s so easy to make mountains out of molehills, become panicked or depressed, lose our center, look outside ourselves for comfort, or for escape. Then we do what it is we do: drink too much, eat too much, drug, shop, gamble, smoke—whatever.
But what if we trusted that everything will be OK? What if we took a deep breath, and realized that everything happens for a reason, the “good” and the “bad,” and it will all work out. Of course when there are problems in life, that’s when this is the hardest thing in the world to do! When everything’s running smoothly, no problem. But there’s the rub; therein lies the test.
Beyond religion, beyond differing personal beliefs, lies trust. Trust in ourselves, trust that we’re not alone, trust that we will be OK.
