Some days finding inspiration to get going can be difficult. I know that some days I just feel like I am not connecting as much as I could be with Jesus. Some days, I wake up with an inner fire that is boiling over, and I can’t seem to stop wanting to express it. Other days, like today, I am just feeling like I am floating around in the atmosphere. I realize that most days I can not be at my peak, there are going to be days like this, but man, I wish it didn’t have to be that way.
The last few days, I have been writing about love and relationships, all the major themes in the Bible, they just seem to correlate back to these two. I am not a theologian or a Bible scholar by any stretch of the imagination. My profession is managing people for a major insurance company. Trust me, I am as lay as a lay person comes, when it comes to being a Catholic Christian. That being said, in the last few months, I have felt really connected to the Holy Spirit, and I am of a firm belief that it is only with that Spirit, I am able to make the connections that I am making. I have been looking, searching, and praying to make this connection all my life, and let me tell you, after waiting, this is one of the best feelings ever.
Everyone on Earth, no matter the religious persuasion, or even the claim to not be religious at all, is looking for something. I know this because, at various points in my life, I could have claimed to have been atheist, Taoist, Baptist (Southern), agnostic, and now today, I am a proud Catholic. Not ashamed to say it, I am a proud Catholic. I am not ashamed of who I was prior to conversion either. It led me to where I am today. Through all of those various points, one thing is very true, and I think is very important, I was constantly being moved to find something of value to hang on to in life. A meaning. A purpose for being here. I am still looking for the “thing” I am being called to do, however, I have come to realize that in everything that I do, my life has a meaning.
I can not find a better way to state it, other than putting the following lyrics in this post today. I have heard this song a million times over. I have belted out this tune at the top of my lungs. I am the best dashboard performer any car has ever seen, and this is one that came up on my playlist this morning. Here it is, have a blessed day:
