An Internal Glance

What do you need to return to?
Every one of us will hit a wall. More than one, actually. Real life is REAL. It may be grief, it may be depression, it may be a season of high demands, it may be doubt, it may be unresolved conflict, it may be loneliness, it may be disappointment…we WILL hit a wall.
The necessary question is: how do we handle these walls? Remember that this monthly post is meant to support reflection in your life so that in the waves of the tumult you will draw near to the Father and lean on others. It is the design of every human to return to God and return to each other.

When tidal waves hit, or small disruptors come into your life, what are the telltale signs that you are not doing well? What do you forget to do? Who do you lose touch with? What habits drift away? What interests fade? When we stop participating in our own lives, it is often a sign that we may need to call on friends to help us return to a “living” life.
One is one outlet that brings you joy and serves to decrease stress. When was the last time you did it? If you have neglected it, when can you make time for it over the next few weeks?
