Soaring Into Miracles

There is something magical about the month of December. Maybe I feel this way because I spend so much time watching Hallmark movies during this time of the year. And as you may or may not know, this is the time of year when every movie that is played begins with a skeptic and ends with someone believing. Believing in what? Good question. The skeptic always ends of believing in miracles. 
The miracle of love. The miracle of happiness. The miracle of success. 

No matter what the skeptic has dealt with in his or her life, they also end up with a change of heart. Each and every movie I watch draws me nearer to the cross. Why? Because the same miracles that cause a shift in the minds and hearts of the skeptics in the movies, are the same miracles that we see day to day when we open our own hearts and minds. 

As I think back over my life, I think about all of the bouts of self doubt, and rejection, and shame that I carried for many years. Feelings of insignificance. Feelings of loneliness. Feelings of bitterness. It wasn't until I allowed myself to wander through the Word, that I began to experience a shift. 

One of the my recent revelations is that there is a Naomi on the inside of me (and YOU too) waiting to arise. Many people read the book of Ruth and focus on Ruth. That makes sense given that the book is named after her. But God whispered to me one day and said, "Without Naomi, there would be no Ruth as you see her." Wait what?! I had to go back and look. Here's what I found. 

Naomi is a beautiful matriarch. She follows her husband during a famine and flees her native land with her two sons in tow. Her sons marry outside their heritage and they all live together as a family unit. When her husband and sons pass away, Naomi is forced to make a decision.   She decides to return home to her native land and recommends that her two widowed daughters in law return to their respective birth families. One leaves and one stays. 

As Naomi returns home with one of her daughters on law, she is warmly welcomed although she believes she is a bitter woman as opposed to a beautiful woman. Naomi fails to see herself the way others see her. She fails to see that people are drawn to her. She fails to recognize that her daughter in law chose her instead of her own birth family. She fails to realize that even after she returns, her daughter in law is relying on her for guidance.

This light within Naomi is also in many of us. It's time to let that light shine. That's why I have birthed a SOAR Journal.  As we approach the end of 2020, I am hosting a SOAR Challenge for every one who is ready to

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
