These inspirational Scriptural based writings, related to challenges, faith, hope, grief, & healing are posted monthly in IHG waiting rooms & the Glory Center to reflect upon, grow from & apply to daily living.
Sometimes the path on our life journey is smooth, unencumbered, & very clear. Other times our life is tumultuous & full of challenges. Often, we have no control over the circumstances we encounter along our path of life. However, we do have choices as to how we view the situations we encounter, whether they are smooth & unencumbered or whether they are tumultuous & our view affects our actions. The question is, when we encounter a challenge & get stuck or lose our way, how do we regain our vision, balance & focus so we can move forward on a smooth path of whole life once again?
God is our answer & we meet Him, spirit to spirit, when we engage in the gift of sacred pausing. We need places that are larger than the sum of their parts in order to remind us that we are all larger than the sum of our earthly body, mind, & spirit. It is our prayer that all God’s people will make time to meet God in those sacred moments & receive His gift of healing.
God created human beings in His very image & empowered them with His Holy Spirit so that they would live in partnership & covenant with him, reflecting out His light, love & grace through their living. Reflecting God’s image & light is the Divine purpose of human existence.
The Bible tells us that from the very beginning of creation God dearly loved all the human beings that He created in His image & called them His Beloved children. Beloved children of God is who we are. Being Beloved children of God is our identity, the core of our existence.
Our physical, mental, & spiritual health depends on staying grounded in our true unchanging identity. Our true identity as a Beloved child of God is anchored beyond all earthly challenges & brings our body, mind, & spirit into balance & harmony which enables us to experience whole healing as we witness for God.
This is a season of growth. As we reflect on God our Creator’s creation & new life, we can’t help but be both overwhelmed & humbled at the amazing wonder of the gifts & graces of God’s creative & redemptive hand, each of which contains & thus reflects the very heart of God.
