Rev. Jimmie Scott –
One of the many benefits of the spiritual journey is learning how to live with vulnerability. Over the past several months I have had quite a few moments when I realized I can’t control every situation in my life. Upon further contemplation I arrived at the conclusion that this vulnerability is giving me greater respect for life, and since it is my life that’s a price I am willing to pay!
Rudyard Kipling said; “No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.’ I am understanding this thought more and more, and this reality keeps me going. We each own our thoughts, our feelings our fears, and our hopes and dreams. But none of them become reality until we surrender to them. In the Old Testament, human thoughts are associated with “angels’. Are you owning your thoughts? Are you surrendering to them? Wrestle with the angels, and when released, prepare to receive a blessing.
Peace and blessings friends!
