(I’m sending these short Daily Breads to your inbox. I hope you enjoy these tiny little bites!)
Do you remember the moment you decided you were going to be self-determining in your own spirituality? The day you were going to allow yourself to doubt, question, explore and discover for yourself?
And do you also remember all the advice you received from those who genuinely cared for you? The warnings, the begging, the pleading, the subtle threats in the invitation, “We’ll be waiting here for you when you come back to your senses!“?
There are certain times in our lives, such as those above, when we make a momentous decision like that, when we must simply close our ears to all that. We have to say, “Thank you for sharing!” and move on.
The train has left the station.
