My soul always finds a way to talk to me. If not through the written dialogue I have with it, then through something that stirs my heart. Of course, there’s always the ones that come from a sermon or great speech, and who can deny the word of god when he speaks to us through the bible. However, I find the most powerful ones come from the unexpected places like the profound words of a friend or something I’m reading totally unrelated to anything. They’re simple words or statements that jump out at me like a neon sign. It is my soul getting a word in edgewise, anyway it can.
In the past week, two statements did such a thing, and when I put them together they created a beautiful message to live by. The first simple noted the words out of a sentence, “The ease of Grace.” It reminded me of a well-oiled clock running smoothly as each mechanism glides together as it was created to do. That’s how life works when we’re not trying to wind the clock in the wrong direction.
The second part came after I made the comment, “I’m good for something,” and my friend says, “You’re good for a lot more then you realize.” Today, the words from a sentence jumped out at me again, “Be who you are here to be.”
“Okay, okay, I get the message, Soul.”
who you are here to be,
appricate first who are,
and the ease of grace
through the soul
that you are.
