Intrigued, with the envelope in your hand you sit heavily in the chair causing it to rock you back and forth.  Slowly you turn the envelope over and pull out a piece of paper.  You unfold it and read:

Dear …(your name)

I am so delighted you decided to take this journey, and allow me this opportunity to extend to you my hospitality.   Life will always take unusual and unexpected turns, and often give the impression of going around in circles.  Without knowing it what appears fruitless or unimportant, can be the very thing that brings you strength for the future.

If you allow yourself to continue on this daily adventure it will become a balm to your soul.  Any negative feelings will lift.  It’s a time to come aside to understand the creator, creation and the creative ability within you.  All you have to do is put your trust in your guide and expect a deeper revelation of life to flow.

Please relax.  Eat the food to nourish your body, the tea to satisfy your thirst.   In the heat of the day, under the shadow of the veranda, you can refresh your mind by meditating on the journey thus far. 

Yours sincerely

J. Carpenter

The Lord says, “Don’t be afraid…I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end…”  Isaiah 43:1 (The Message MSG)

Will you permit those things you have absorbed to bring answers to your life?
