When decisions have to be made it is easy to go into what is the "right" choice to make. When the decision is between whether to have lunch or rob a bank the "right" feels a little more clear. But, when your choice is between schools to attend or jobs to take and even who to spend your life with the pressure begins to build.
I had a moment like this when I was pregnant with my fourth child. I had always felt right about four but I had never received a message from heaven bestowing honor to my feeling.
I was walking across the street one day (Isn't it amazing when these kinds of moments freeze in your mind? These are moments of personal revelation.) and it's like a thousand thoughts came together and I understood something profound. It will take me longer to explain it than the time it took to understand it and the vocabulary is never quite adequate. But, I will try.
I get to choose. My choices are beautiful. I am trusted enough to choose. I am given all I need to move forward. If my feelings of "right" changed in the future I would not be found lacking in my decision now. I could create my life. I no longer had to hope I was getting it right.
The tiny seed of that moment has grown into a most beloved life creed. I am a creator. I was designed in HIS Image to be a creator.
On November 8, 2017 I was reminded of this creed in my morning practice. I was wondering how I could teach the people of the world of their greatness and not move into judgement. I hope to stand with my readers not tower above them self righteously. I wanted to honor my God and get council at the same time. The two were hard to mesh, I hate to admit. The answer came so quickly, so elegantly that I can in no way take credit for it.
Be still and know that I am God paints a picture of grandness and omnipotence. I am standing in the center of the universe with my arms reaching out in the grandness of creation. Move and know I am your father paints the picture of a loving relationship. I have the creator of all willing and ready to hear my ideas and send concourses of angels to help me. He is my Father cheering me on as I create my experience.
