43 Days Until - Countdown to Jubilee


FOR TODAY We do not all prefer to wake up in the same way. Some of us are “morning people” – we rise with the sun and relish those orange-hued Beckwith sunrises over Weeks Bay. We leap out of bed and get our day started right away, often crossing off tasks from our to-do list before breakfast. Others of us prefer to wake up slowly, to lie in bed and savor those quiet moments in the morning when our mind is not yet weary with the day’s woes. We curl up in the blanket for a little longer and do not really come alive until our first cup of coffee or tea is finished.  Waking up can mean more than just greeting a new day. Sometimes waking up is a call to a new way of seeing and being, a journey of discernment. Often times this process of waking up and acclimating to new light requires some vulnerability and grief. Moving on from our current understandings and discovering a new purpose means leaving some things behind. As Christians, we often find ourselves called into cycles of newness and resurrection. The good news is that we are never alone in the process. With God at our side we can trust that every time we are called to wake up to new ways of seeing or being, we are learning more about ourselves and our purpose. Trusting in the process allows us to grow even closer to God. FOR FURTHER REFLECTION How is God calling your soul to be more awake in the world? What might you need to move on from in order to become more awake and aware of what God is calling you to right now?


AWAKE

This second week focuses on the word awake. As Christians, we often find ourselves called into cycles of newness and resurrection. The good news is that we are never alone in the process. With God at our side we can trust that every time we are called to wake up to new ways of seeing or being, we are learning more about ourselves and our purpose. Trusting in the process allows us to grow even closer to God.  Find all previous daily devotionals here
