That Which Is in Us Will Save Us
By Rev. Felicia Blanco Searcy
This is the time of year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus with the Christmas story. When we read the ancient tale with mystical eyes, we hear our current story of awakening. We heed the invitation of Spirit by listenting deeply to hear how to give birth to our dreams, our desires and our gifts. In moments of quiet commuion, we see that as we claim our divine inheritance and give birth to our gifts and splendor we save ourselves from our insanity and unhappiness and bring about heaven here on earth. We don't have to know how to do it. we just have to be willing and available. Spirit will do the rest.
What are you holding inside today? What in you longs to be born this Christmas season that will save you from your self-imposed prison of unhappiness and limitation? there is a gift waiting to be discovered and longing to be born through you. take some time this Christmas season to listen deeply to what it might be. Dare to give birth to a new expanded you.
Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles. ---- Isaiah 40:31
