How do we hold on?

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

Faced as we all are with times that challenge, how is it that we hold on awaiting for things to shift?

It is the experienced union with God that will in the end shift things.  That runs counter to the idea of “circumstance based happiness.”  While we may need to take a hard look and make hard decisions about the circumstances of our lives, even re-arranging the furniture, as it were, such rearrangements rarely of themselves bring lasting change, lasting joy. What does is the lived experienced of connectedness with God and allowing that foundational connectedness to pull us at the time out into connectedness with others.   From there, with our ego quiescent, we have nothing to defend or protect.  We are “safe” then anywhere.  We have arrived “home.”
