On Sunday we talked about the Spiritual Practice of “Getting Lost”. This is, undoubtedly, the practice most of us actively avoid. Who wants the stress, the hassle, the anxiety of getting lost? With the invention of GPS, only the very skilled among us still get lost. 💁♀️ But, of course, you know that I am not inviting you to a practice where we throw away our maps and hope for the best. I am inviting us to reflect on the times in our life when things have gone off the rails. The times when the carefully orchestrated plans turn to dust. We lose our jobs, a partner leaves, a child dies, our health shifts, a close relationship is fractured. In these moments being “lost” isn’t a theory, it is fact.
We have all been lost. We will all be lost. The best way to move forward is to embrace the times we have been lost. This week, I am inviting you to makes space to prayerfully reflect on a time you have been lost. What changed in you? How have you walked forward differently as a result of that experience? How was God present to you in that season —- maybe you saw it all along, maybe you only see it looking backwards.
If you find that you are currently in a season of “lostness”, you are not alone. I am praying with you. Message me.
