Coming alive amidst the change
Do not be discouraged if you are not as far along as you thought you would be by now. Do not be afraid if this new house does not feel like home. If this crowded new city makes you feel even more alone. Because even before you get into the rhythm of things, you can pay attention to the rhythm of your beating heart, that still beats for peace, hope, freedom, and courage right here, where you are. You do not have to look very far. You do not have to wait for someone to give you permission to start looking where the Light pours in. So much has changed around you, and so much is changing within you. These new experiences and emotions you are feeling have had an affect on you, and they have also produced courage within...courage to see the beauty even when the unpacked boxes are still stacked up against the wall. Peace to see that in all that that is changing, your soul is still steady. Freedom to know that you are allowed to step into this present season, even while you are still trying to find your place. You are free to thrive in the change.
