Feel the love of the Lord close to your heart. Learn to take a step forward and the leap of faith needed to heal.
"I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,[a] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought." 1 Corinthians 1:10
Often, our perceptions of the circumstances and challenges we face tend to magnify the complexity of what they really are. We get caught up in unfounded fears and debilitating fantasies that keep us from moving toward what we really want to experience in life.
How many times have we held ourselves back, delaying the pursuit of our dreams because we consider them difficult and protracted? We allow ourselves to be intimidated by the apparent magnitude of the obstacles, when in reality we only need Faith and the courage to take that first step towards what we long for.
It is as if we underestimate our own strength and overestimate the barriers we encounter. But this is where the Holy Spirit invites us to challenge those limiting perceptions and embrace faith in the power of God in our lives.
"And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." 2 Corinthians 3:18
If you are currently longing for a deeper and more fluid connection with the Lord and the Holy Spirit, but feel at a loss as to how to achieve it, you must not despair. The key is to dare to dream, to envision a future more filled with joy and fulfillment. Don't fall into the trap of thinking it is out of your reach, because that mentality only keeps you in a cycle of dissatisfaction.
Building a deep relationship with God and the Holy Spirit is not an impossible task, but a journey that requires commitment and trust. Don't be limited by mistaken beliefs that you must wait for something to magically change. God calls us to be active in our spiritual quest.
Defining a clear goal and committing to it is fundamental. No one else can do it for you. But remember that this journey is not a bed of roses. You will face failures and challenges, but in those moments you must remember that these obstacles are not an indication that you are wrong, but opportunities to grow and learn.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23
As you go forward, keep your Faith high, both in God and in yourself. Trust that difficulties are temporary and that you are being guided to a place of spiritual growth and fulfillment.
That same faith that you place in God, you must also apply to your projects, your desires and your dreams. This implies committing yourself to a constant effort. Prayer and perseverance are essential. Do not give up in the face of challenges, since each obstacle overcome is a step towards your growth and the Glory of God.
Don't procrastinate any longer on what you know you must begin today. If you feel the call to strengthen your spiritual connection, there is no better time than the present. Excuses and procrastination only keep you from your path of healing and growth.
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2
Become aware of the aspects you have neglected in your spiritual life and begin to work on them. Feed your prayers with gratitude and surround those you love. Listening to and supporting your loved ones is also a path of growth and healing.
It is important to remember that this journey is a constant opportunity to rediscover ourselves, to heal ourselves and to strengthen our relationship with God. Each day is a new opportunity to get closer to our true spiritual essence.
Ultimately, what we are called to do is to keep Faith and action in balance. Faith gives us the confidence to believe in what we do not yet see, while action allows us to move towards the materialization of our desires.
If you find yourself at a point of search and transformation today, remember that this path is a constant reminder that you can overcome your fears and limitations. Trust in the power of the Holy Spirit and your ability to create a future filled with spiritual fulfillment and connection.
