The Holy Grail, according to Indiana Jones 🙂 is an ancient chalice which carries with it much importance, so much so that he was willing to risk his life, and the lives of others, to find it!
With that thought in mind I think that we all have a Holy Grail that we are chasing! Or should be chasing! What I mean to say is; what is the one thing in life that you would die for? What is that thing that you are willing to die trying to do ( seek until your dying breath?)
I am sure for some people their Holy Grail is money, success, love….etc….. I started wondering what my Holy Grail is.
I realized that I started the search for my Holy Grail in 2007, April 12th to be exact! That is the day my husband and I moved to Florida. We thought we were leaving for a better job for him, but later learned it was to start my quest for the (my) Holy Grail! I seek wisdom, knowledge, what sort of knowledge? I seek a deep knowledge, a knowing of God and what it is He wants of me. My Holy Grail, that which I have chased now for 7 solid years without fail….is the knowledge of how I will help others. My quest is to learn to serve and honor Him.
I have taken many turns on this journey, many turns which I believe are all leading to the same place…..my Holy Grail! I am closer than ever! I can feel it. And He whispers in my ear every night to keep on searching! Do not give up! Never give up!
And so I don’t. And I won’t.
So what is your Holy Grail?
Every morning when I wake up, one of the first things I do is to say “thank you!” I know the power a grateful heart has. I know how gratitude, forgiveness, and love can transform a life. I understand the power of love, of God.
It’s an easy task for me to ask each day ” what can I be grateful for today?” To ask “where will you use me today?” These questions are easy for me to ask, but it is not that way for a lot of people. And so I write, talk, and share, I am on a continuous journey to get the word out.
But some days, I feel like it’s not enough. I feel like I am just spinning my wheels…going nowhere! So what can I do to reach more people? To actually get others to incorporate what I know into their lives? I know I am not the only one speaking out on this subject, we all have our own little part of the world to change! How do I make sure I change my part while I am still here on earth?
Knowing how to be grateful, forgiving, and loving, knowing the power these things have to transform a life, knowing it isn’t enough! Knowledge -(minus) action = knowledge, plain and simple. You have knowledge. But if you want to change the world, you need to add action! Knowledge+action=change !
I think….I am being impatient. All things happen in Gods time, not mine. I know I’m headed in the right direction. I also talk about faith, seems I need a dose of that right about now!
Forgive me for my lack of faith! Help me to stay the course, to know that all will happen in your time. That all is as it should be. To know that waking up each morning, saying “thank you” and asking ” how may I serve you?” is enough! And to know that you will lead me to the next step on my journey! Thank you!! For another day to get it right! ~Amen
I pray you know the power you have! The power to change your part of the world! Be grateful for another day to get it right!
