A "day in the life" of Jesus. Jesus cures a demoniac, heals Simon's mother-in-law, and he preaches and heals "the whole town." Finally, he rises very early and went off to a deserted place where he prayed. Whew. Jesus knows the stresses and strains of a demanding life. He offers us some important lessons.
Named. Formed. Continually created. Called. Rescued. Forgiven. Healed. Saved, not condemned. Loved. It has taken me a lifetime to come to hear and to feel these revelations as personal truth, not religious dogma or cliche. It has also taken me years to feel that I can and should share my own spiritual learnings with others. I am called to walk in faith, not fear. Walk! Yes, Lord.
"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."
Thistraditional saying has always resonated with me because it is so aligned with my experience. It seems that throughout my life, in times of stress, chaos or change, books would "appear" that helped light my way. Whether your call this is synchronicity or the hand of God, this phenomena has been a hallmark of my life. Books fill my home and my Kindle library.
