04 Apr Easter Morning, Hidden Gifts
We attended Quaker meeting this Easter morning and surrounded by the silence, the breeze through the open window, and the sound of the birds outside… I was moved by the Spirit to share the following Ministry…
I have a degree in Chemistry, very close to a minor in Physics, and in those heady days of studying the infinitely small ways the world works it would have been easy with all the formulas, rules, and equations to write God out of existence.
I did have a friend ask me well then, why did I still believe in God?
I choose to believe in God because it makes my life better.
I choose to believe in God because it makes my life sweeter.
I choose to believe in God because it make my life richer, deeper, fuller…
At the end of the day believing in God brings me peace.
There are pieces of the bible I hold very dear. Scriptures that support me, guide me, comfort me.
There are hymns from my childhood I still hum when I clean or cook, sing to my children when they are sick.
And there are pieces of the bible that don’t really resonate with me… pieces I hold a little looser.
I am choosing today as an opportunity to look within and find what Light have I stuffed away in a dark place. What gift have I covered up.
I am choosing today as an opportunity to resurrect that gift that God would ask me to bring forth into the world.
