lt hit me today on my yoga mat, how much faith is like #yoga: it’s only beneficial if you practice it.
And nothing can make that concept more challenging than a pretty rough day.
Don’t get me wrong. I didn’t sign up for this Christianity thing because I thought it would be a barrel full of Cheetos or anything. More now than ever Christians are being persecuted for their beliefs, so I was pretty well aware that keeping things on the DL about the whole Jesus thing was the smarter move. But faith isn’t about making calculated moves on this board called “life.” It’s about loss of self in order to allow a complete transformation of head and heart.
It’s about closing your eyes and taking that leap.
And leaping, my friends, is a full on verb.
It ain’t easy, but when I open my eyes to this world, it’s more than necessary. Lessons from the good book are a good thing, but putting them into practice is a great thing, even when my day is less than brilliant.
So a quick pick me up on the mat and a conversation with the Lord has gotten me back in tune.
And tomorrow, I’ll be ready to lend the world my heart and my hands.
