A Look Inside My Search

In a search for answers to the woes in my life, I found God. The truth that lies in knowing God for myself, placed me on a quest for peace. While on this journey, I have discovered that there are others seeking this truth also and that I can help. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Catholic Theological Union, not to rise above anyone, but to better serve everyone. I am on a journey towards peace, speaking truth that opens people up to God.

I'm beginning the journey towards living simply. I've accumulated many things, knick knacks, trinkets, jewelry, and they now have places of honor in storage containers. What's the point of that?

I started my Lenten Journey with a reflection by Rev. Dr. Julie Tomaine entitled, "Living Simply: Embracing the Gift of Peace," and that reflection keeps calling out to me. So today I've decided to fully commit to the process of living simply. What does that mean for me? For one it means sharing on a large scale. It means opening my jewelry box and giving away the earrings that I'm no longer wearing. As many of you can attest, I've been wearing the same pair of earrings since 9/11. So why do I have the rest?

Why are we holding on to "things" that get in the way of our God? Why do we tune in to those things before we seek out God's voice?

Simply is going to be quite a journey for me, but I am ready for this endeavor. I long to clear away all that blocks me from getting closer to our God.

Move around.

Make the changes necessary to be more available to God.

God is trying to reach you, but you might need to rearrange things in your life so that you can allow God's Spirit to better to you.

Sometimes when I'm lost or confused, I stand in the middle of my living room and imagine how to rearrange the furniture. Then the moving begins. Surely it doesn't seem to make sense, but once I rearrange the living space, my spiritual clutter is gone.

Are you like me? Do you find yourself rearranging furniture, things and people so that you can gain better clarity?

Perhaps while you are rearranging things you find stuff behind the couch or under the chair that needs to be thrown out. Well,...Throw it away. While you're rearranging things, realign your priorities. Allow God to breathe into you God's breath of LIFE.

Blessed Lenten Journey
