Spiritual Life Coaching – Move
Do you ever have one of those days when you just don’t feel like doing anything? It’s not as though there isn’t anything to do – there is plenty on your plate and responsibilities stacked up to the roof but your mind and body just say – “nope, not gonna doit…” The sun is shinning and it is beautiful out and there is every reason to feel good but you can’t pull yourself out of this doldrum that has hold of your psyche. So what do I do? Write – think – feel.
I have been busy, mind you. I traveled to Arizona to visit friends. I’ve been getting work done every day, I have colleagues who are supportive and patient, I’ve even started a daily radio message which is on at 6:30AM on our local radio station called, “Step of Faith.” What I really think is happening is the residual survivors guilt of grief. Grief is a strange emotion. It strikes in unusual ways. You aren’t even aware of how it hits. And just because a loved one is with God doesn’t mean that we don’t hurt for what we see as things they will miss. We can’t really see things from their perspective. Even when Jesus came to Lazarus grave the bible tells us, “Jesus wept.” (John 11:35)
Lent is a season when we focus on the cross – an instrument of death that gives us life. Yet, the trumpets are being polished and the alleluias are being stored up. Jesus doesn’t leave us bereft forever. So I will keep moving through the emotions and the call to serve as best I can waiting to sing.
