Sacred Clarity. . .

176

When everything is stripped away . . . the truth of what matters . . . brings sacred clarity to the soul.

Think on this . . . 

I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind” (Ecclesiastes 1:14, NIV).

Evidence and rabbinic tradition suggest King Solomon authored the book Ecclesiastes in his second half of life.   While aging is resisted in our culture; the gift of aging was not only acknowledged but embraced in the ancient days.  Solomon attained and accomplished more than seems possible. 

Along the way, he realized none of it held meaning; it all had become “a chasing after the wind.” 

Take time to look at what’s yours to do . . . strip it all down to what really matters . . . removing the pressure and problems of it all from your evaluation.  When you are ready, the wind of the Spirit will move deep into your soul, exposing what matters, revealing the profound mystery and gift of each and every moment you’ve received to be who you are and do what’s yours to do through the grace of God.  It’s the power of grace which empowers us to do what we can’t do on our own.
