Lately, I awake to the sounds of the world. The sounds and noise of discourse, lack, and fear surround my early morning thoughts blaring from the radio and television. I tell myself these are not the sounds of my heart. Therefore, I look to recondition my early morning thoughts by reconnect them to the being that I am. I know that I am a being of divine intelligence surrounded by God’s light, Love, Peace, and Wholeness.
No longer do I receive the world’s belief of a market driven society that opens the door of success. What does the world have to offer? In most societal communities, we learn to adapt to your environment, teaching us to strive to become a product of that community. The result has produced a civilization where live is hard and cold, with a constant desire to gain position over one another, by any means possible.
One way, to reassure I listen to the songs of my heart, I reaffirm the guidance of God, and Jesus Christ through One Minute Prayers, my favorite “Finding my way Home.”
“At the intersection of Your Love and faithfulness, Lord, I have found my life. For years, I have taken many detours. My soul longed for intrigue, so it turned down curious, narrow avenues; I found only pain and suffering. My spirit craved success and celebrity, so I ventured along the flashy main street, only to find failure and isolation.
Then I stopped following my “wants” and listened to my heart. My pace quickened as I caught a glimpse of the crossroads ahead. You waited patiently for me on the corner. I didn’t ask what it was You were promising or how long it would last. I could see home in Your eyes, and it went on forever.”
