Journeying…

Life is a simultaneous inward and outward journey with two individual destinations… deeper and further. The journeys should both take us along the same path if we are being true to ourselves and our beliefs, morals and standards. We are all learning on the inward and outward journey and it is up to us how we will travel, how fast, how smoothly, how cleverly. It will also depend on how our attitude is towards the obstacles we may encounter along the way and if we will choose to learn from the fellow sojourners along the way. We may not have the map for every detail and we may not have all we need for the whole trip with us but no one can travel with EVERYTHING they need. You wouldn’t get very far at all, maybe only an inch at a time to be able to balance all those requirements…

Decide…

To  solve or conclude (a question, controversy, or struggle) by giving victory to  one side. To determine or settle (something in dispute or doubt). To bring (a  person) to a decision; persuade or convince. Decide, resolve, determine imply  settling upon a purpose and being able to adhere to it. To decide is to make up  one’s mind as to what shall be done and the way to do it. To resolve is to show  firmness of purpose. To determine is to make up one’s mind and then to stick to  a fixed or settled purpose . NO ONE can decide for you! NO ONE can  decide for me! I am speaking most loudly to myself here! This is what  I have got on my mind… that I need to decide somethings. Deciding is a firm  thing, not a flimsy thing. Decide is a word that has strength in it, you…

What I would have done…

It doesn’t matter ‘what I would have done’, because when it affects you, it’s what someone else did or didn’t do that you have to work our your feelings over. This is a lesson I have got quite a bit these last few years. For some silly reason I was under the impression that everyone else was just like me and did things how I do but they don’t. It’s especially in those codes of ethic that I try to be as considerate as I can be… but my standards aren’t always going to be yours. I have to learn that, really realise it and then be ok with it. If I don’t like it then I know where my boundaries must lie and so I will move more towards them. It’s all those silly little things, that in the end seem to matter! I try my best to reply…

Time For Me to Live….

It’s funny how I know I’m getting old, I know it in my head but I don’t feel any different. I feel as if I’m ready to go running out there and join in on some adventure. I had an uncle and aunt that lived on a farm when was young and whenever I went to stay I loved every minute of it. I loved the chooks and the creek, the frogs and the lizards. I loved the bush camp fires, the huge cubby houses we built on the farm and the cows mooing in the morning and the green paddocks. I loved going down to the dam early in the morning and collecting tadpoles. If there was a tree to be cut down my uncle was the man for the job. He would come over in his Landcruiser with his chainsaw to cut it down and there was something about it…

Downsizing!

A lot of us can’t move very far ahead and even begin to experience our future because we are still carrying our ‘life’ baggage everywhere we go. Sometimes its like a small trolley luggage bag, sometimes it’s a huge suitcase, hopefully we don’t have a porter following us around with an assortment of suitcases and bags! I think we all carry some luggage like this!Perhaps you have that small trolley luggage case rolling behind you dragging on the ground as you go? As we deal with what is in the luggage bit by bit over time we can reduce the size of the bags, perhaps we can downsize to smaller suitcases till eventually we can get rid of them altogether and maybe we only carry a back pack or have our essentials in a bum bag! This is what happens throughout our life! Sometimes we end up picking up the…

The Navigator….

But I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in You, O Lord; I said, You are my God. My times are in Your hands Psalm 31:14-15 AMP and Psalm 139:16 AMP If there was someone who had seen every single day you ever lived, and they knew the beginning, the end, the middle, the end and every other day, minute and hour in between and they loved you more than anyone possibly could wouldn’t you think it was a good idea to put your time in their hands? This is the position that God occupies in all our lives whether we give him control or not. He knows every detail and He totally loves us more than anyone ever could. He is unlike any other as he has our interests 100% at heart and he knows us better than we know ourself. Now that is one I can confidently…
