Occasionally, things happen so fast that you have no time to think, yet you know, that sitting back and listening to the voice within is what you need to do. Last month has kept me busy in ways that have been a great learning experience, and I have been involved in all sorts of activities, yet at times, an awareness sneaked up on me so that I did not watch for it. It felt as if nothing is happening. Within. Yet, everything was. Strange as it is, it somewhat didn’t allow me to examine & reflect my current standing when that’s what I strived to do on the inside. Little had I understood that it was exactly where the problem lied. I had absolutely no need to examine. No need to wonder. No need to question. No need to fret. Absolutely none. I can’t express how relieving the realization is! Holy Epiphany!
Took me a while but thank God it struck me at last. Struck me hard! I have been hoping for things yet not believing in them. What I was missing all this while was Faith. Hope and Faith are inextricably bound and yet so different. And, stronger of the two is Faith because while hope is the means, faith is based on the ends. It is when you know ( I mean, really know) that whatever the outcome will be, it'll only be for the better. When your world takes on new dimensions, it’s easy for doubt and fear to creep in. Yet without faith there can be no new facets to growth, no new joys to experience & no greater possibilities. We do not know what tomorrow holds for us, but we do know WHO holds tomorrow. Once you grasp it- that is enough!
We all spend a lifetime coming to terms with our doubts and fears, why then is it so hard to spend a lifetime coming to terms with our faith? There are questions we just can’t answer, but that is such a relief now because, I know I don’t have to answer them. That was never my job! Silly me! That’s job of that expert we know by the name of God. When He’s at it already, why should I bother? All I know is that when He answers, He answers it best. Always. No exceptions. Right now I can just say that it’s overwhelming for me to know that something big, something absolutely incredible & magnificent is in making. I don't know when, where or how, but of late, I’ve started feeling so. I can’t iterate this enough – FAITH, FAITH, FAITH! In God. In your Future. That’s all that counts. There is absolutely no space for doubt, since doubt attracts doubt and faith attracts faith. Once you get to this point, it feels wonderful – it’s almost as if all the weight of responsibility is gently taken from your shoulders and you release a sigh of ease. All you need to do is, Let go & Let God. Because he will take you where you really want to be. Don’t worry, ‘How’? It is overrated!
Now, the next time you are stuck in mid air and hating it, trust that you’re on the right track (because you are). That’s where the good stuff starts because mid air is real & it is very, very valuable – it is the space between the ground and your dreams & desires. Take a few deep breaths into the panic, perhaps go lie down or close your eyes as you see yourself poised to take off. Soon enough, you’ll be out there. Out of the turbulence, the cloudiness, coasting along smoothly. But first, you’ve got to loosen your grip and leap! Do it or be thrown off.
Taking a leap of faith is often one of the hardest things, but once you do it, you’re liberated. Literally. Oh and by the way, just so that you know, you’re not stuck.
You’re Airborne !!
