In life, you will find yourself in places you never expected to find yourself – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Others may look in from the outside and feel entitled to criticize or make fun of you.
Sometimes you’re stuck because of your own constraints. That can happen.
But sometimes you’re stuck because God or the Universe needs you exactly where you are.
Why? To heal.
It seems preposterous that the Universe would want such a thing for you. It can seem so cruel sometimes.
But if you freefall into the embracing arms of the Universe, you may find that you are exactly where you need to be right now.
Some days, I don’t feel like I’m the one at the steering wheel. I feel like god, the universe, or some other unnamed force is.
I met a friend for a quick chat at Starbucks today. When I showed up, he was there with another friend, who shared:
God can bring you exactly where you need to go. You don’t need a phone. You just need to pay attention to signs and promptings. It’s the same thing with rest. Rest is an essential part of life, and when you are prompted to rest, the best idea is to rest.
I, in turn, shared when I was prompted to go on sabbatical back in summer 2013. A podcast had planted the idea in my mind, and I followed through, because a season was ending in my life.
It would seem, the universe’s message to me today, is to rest.
Because today, I have mostly been unfolding conversations instead of just sitting at a desk typing out words. Which has been amazing.
Who’s at the steering wheel? I don’t know. But you would do well to follow promptings to rest.
