beginning

“I am waiting for you, Vizzini. You told me to go back to the beginning, so I have. This is where I am, this is where I will stay. I will not be moved.” – Inigo Montoya

You remember the scene… Inigo has hit bottom. He has no direction, no hope, no drive, and no purpose.

How many times is this me? Daily, weekly, yearly…

Ever feel like that?

lost

floundering

just placing one foot in front of the other…

losing track of the destination…

Once again, here i am…

Sitting. Doing. Running. Living. Yet feeling like everything that had been striving toward is so very far away, losing track of the reason, the purpose. Life weighs down & i keep moving.

Yet, as we are burdened and demands are placed on our time, we sacrifice in the places that we can and the first thing that goes is alone time. It is precious, but matters press & press until those precious moments are given away.

It doesn’t seem to impact life right away, it doesn’t hit until we are bone dry, empty, desperate, & desolate…

So it is…

this is where i am today…

“When the job went wrong, you went back to the beginning. Well, this is where we got the job, so this is the beginning. And I am staying until Vizzini comes.” – Inigo Montoya

So I will go back to the beginning…

“In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.” – John 1:1-2

We all need the recharge, the reminder. We all need to go back to the beginning and restore, renew, recharge our relationship with our Creator, our Father, the One who created the universe and everything in it.

Today i pray for each of you to have a moment to recharge, a time that is just for you to spend time fortifying your relationship with God. A time that you can meet with the only One who does not demand – take – suffocate – drown

the One who waits

the One who forgives

the One who rebuilds from ashes and dust

Today i pray that you will meet with Him before the day steals your peace & crushes your spirit. Allow Him to fortify your heart & recharge your mind & set your feet back on the path that He has created for you.

Today i thank God for giving me that time and making that space in my life and my day. i thank God for waiting for me to return, for being there when i need Him most, for forgiving me when i get too busy, and for taking me back when i blow it.
