Life from the Canyontop… 

I had a vision of myself recently… I was standing on a canyontop… The wind was blowing fiercely and there was a great drop from the top of where I stood…

That’s when I decided… Aside from what I was feeling… Aside from the spiritual shaking going on all around… Well I decided to stand firm…

Two days ago I was able to experience the Grand Canyon… And I willingly walked out to a very far edge… The wind was fiercely blowing… It could’ve knocked me down…

And then… Then I was hit with the realization of the past month… The course of all that I felt in the midst of life shaking… Of the winds blowing so strongly…

And I couldn’t help but begin to cry… Because in that moment I was so encouraged…

Encouraged to see what I saw a month ago become a reality… A reality that reminded me that standing strong… Standing firm… Standing on the faith of the florishing canyontop… In the midst of the shaking… In the midst of the loss of control… In the midst of the constant unknown…

Well that continuing to stand was the best choice…

And it’s almost like… For the first time… Well I felt like I’ve become the woman I want to be… Or more of her…

Because in the midst of the shaking… Well I realized the it was simply wind… And the wind was simply the movement of the Holy Spirirt…

And though life felt so shaky… (Yes I had one panicked/nervous/nauseous/anxious breakdown)… Well I choose to let Him move… To let Him just move and reorganize life the way He thought it best…

And now… Now I find myself more confident than ever in the truth that standing… Standing in the midst of what seems to be adversity is the best… And that sometimes the adversity of life is brought on by the Holy Spirit’s movement…

And if I just choose to remain calm and stand… Well then I can watch life from the top of the canyon… And stand in amazement of all of God’s goodness and glory…

And I’m ok what that…
