It is Well with My Soul

As I experience the world suffering with pain from sadness, anger, fear, and grief, which seems to be on another level, I can’t help but think of my demise. Not because I live in fear but because we have no promise of tomorrow or what the day will bring.

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business, and make a profit.” You do not even know what will happen tomorrow! What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 
James 4:13-14

I love the quote from Louise Hay that says “Remember that you come into this world in the middle of a movie, and you leave in the middle; and so do the people you love. But love never dies, and spirit knows no loss.”

We leave when our job is done. And when I apply that to my loved ones that have passed I think about “What was their job?” We can believe whatever we want to believe but believe that they had a purpose. Believe that they brought a difference in this world. We can grieve their loss but let’s not suffer for their spirit lives forever with us.

And if my body leaves this earth today, I think “What is my job?” “What is my purpose?” “What legacy am I leaving?” As I meditate and think about my gifts and purpose, my shared purpose to help others I pray I come to know every gift to embrace and utilize.

We are so much more than what we are chasing. We come in the middle of the movie with a part, an awarding winning part that is placed within us to support others. We are the best supporting actor/actress! I pray we all find our role to support others so that we may leave a legacy that made a difference that brought more love, compassion, and healing to a suffering world. And with that, it is well with my soul.
