I am still learning…

I am spiritual.  I have many books beside my bed on God, Jesus, and the teachings of the Bible.  I also have books to help me understand Buddhism.  Furthermore, I just researched the fear of witchcraft for an article I wrote…I am a curious soul.  Why am I writing about this tonight?  Why did it get me out of bed to come type these words?  Because I believe in messages.  Last year, I saw the same message everywhere.  It started to umm, well, get scary, but in a cool way.  Everywhere I looked, the message would pop up.  Okay, as I mentioned, I do have tons of books beside my bed, but I also started seeing the message elsewhere.  I downloaded some apps for my new tablet last year and the first message that popped up was “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13, nkjv).

So, apparently, that was a message I needed to learn.  Lately, in all my books, in all my quotes, everywhere, I have seen a message like this: “No, dear friends, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead…” (Philippians 3:13 nlt).  Whatever your religion, this message is a good one to hear.  I am hearing it now until it sinks in.  It’s like this…I am minding my own business when someone runs up to me.  They grab me, tie me up and throw me in the trunk.  It’s dark in there.  I don’t know where I’m going, and I don’t think I’m going in the direction that will take me home.  That’s what it’s like to go against your true potential.  You will not find your way home.  You were meant to be somewhere else.

I think the reason this message is popping up for me at this time is because it is one I need to hear.  I have taken a step out onto a branch that could possibly break.  I am trying to reach the one above it just to see if it can be done.  I want to see how far I can go.  Of course it’s safe on the ground.  I could stay there if I wanted, but I would see the same thing.  Once I climb to the top, the view will be amazing.  Yes, there are people yelling “Come back down here where it’s safe!”, but there are also cheers of “You are almost there!  One more branch.”  So I am going to keep looking up.  Moving forward.
