Sunday Soul Work: Hindsight Learning

220

TableThink’s conversation for the past week has been centered on hindsight . . . learning from where we’ve been and what we’ve done . . . a key piece of who we are and what we do. 

So.  We are underlining some *key lessons to review through the holiday weekend.

Five *Key Lessons For Today:

*Key lesson:  Take a seat at the table with one another.

When we come to the table, we choose to give time to one another, which in this era is HUGE.  Because.   To take a seat at the table means saying “no” to other things in order to be present with one another.   It’s one of the most meaningful gifts we will ever receive as well as give. ~ Excerpt from Sunday Soul Work: Come To The Table

*Key lesson: Stand with one another during adversity.

There will be those who see you standing and choose to stand with you.  Conversely, there will be a day you will stand with someone in their adversity.  ~ Excerpt from Sunday Soul Work: Having Done All . . . Stand

*Key lesson:  Connect with the presence of God in the wilderness of life.

As hard as it is, the wilderness of life provides the opportunity to become stronger, revealing the raw truth of life.  We may begin the journey into the wilderness feeling alone; however, God comes and is our Shelter and Strength.  God is with us as we find our way through, making it possible to  break through the power of fear and the impossibilities which invade our life. ~Excerpt from Sunday Soul Work: Wilderness Strong

*Key lesson: Live your “why” now, rather than waiting for someday.

We don’t need to wait for the perfect circumstances to be fulfilled, as, if, there’a a magic moment when it’s clear we’ve  “arrived.”   Fulfillment in the why of living does not occur in the future when we have it “all together” (whatever that means).  Fulfillment is ours the moment we step into aligning our life with what’s ours to do, regardless of the present circumstances. ~Excerpt from Sunday Soul Work: Your Assignment

*Key lesson: Live in unity at your table.

It’s key to living the best life. Because . . . the table is the place we unite in belonging to God. . . and discover this unity in our differences as well as similarities.  So, today, we sit together in grace, grieving Rachel Held Evans, who gathered many at the table.   And, we pray for her husband, young children, and all who loved her.

Rachel ended her last written post on her blog with these words:  “Remember that you are dust and to dust you will return.” Death is a part of life. My prayer for you this season is that you make time to celebrate that reality, and to grieve that reality, and that you will know you are not alone. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.” ~Excerpt from Sunday Soul Work: Grief At The Table . . .

Think on these key lessons . . . there’s more tomorrow . . . and every. single. day.
