contemplating pathways this week as i get stuff ready for sacred space tomorrow.
the path we walk each day with jesus...
the path we would like to walk..
just where is jesus going anyway?
what path is he taking?
am i willing to follow him even when i can't see around the corner?
am i willing to go to the desert to be alone...
alone with my god and alone with my temptations?
am i willing to leave my boat...my safety, my security, what is comfortable and safe...
to follow him?
am i willing to fish again... even after i have fished ALL NIGHT!?
just because HE says so?
i have to admit that i don't always want to follow jesus down the path,
too often i want to run ahead...
i believe that my way is best
or i think jesus is going much too slowly...
can't you walk faster jesus...why do you go sooo slowly...?
i come by my impatience honestly...and rob will tell you that i am the
most stubborn person he knows....it is so hard to wait on his map!
and just why is it so hard to follow?
and what was it about jesus that made those fishermen leave their nets...
what moved them to let go of their control
and sent them on the path with him?
they saw jesus
they heard his voice
they really listened
they saw themselves for who they really were
and realized that jesus loved the REAL them...who they really were in all their "glory".
the path of lent is 40 days...
what do i want those 40 days to look like?
what could they look like?
what journey...what path does jesus have for me?
where could jesus take me in these forty day?
time to get my pack and get on his path....
this time behind him!
