Wildly Fierce

Hello Beautiful

As life takes stride it is often easy to take things for granted.  An unappreciative life typically loses sight of what is truly spectacular.  The magic of snowfall is casually lost on a Canadian similar to a Puerto Rican losing sight of the crystal blue clarity of a Caribbean beach.  As the spectacular turns to normal, norm changes to expected.  Expectations are like hot sauce on our tongue.  There is a constant need to raise the level or else our dulled sense lead us to boredom.

It is this dull outlook on life that is a cause for many of our troubles.  Our ever present need for sensationalism feeds our flesh’s shortcomings and stifles the growth of our soul.  Just a few weeks ago I was visiting a church.  Not a bad church; I just happen to regularly attend a particularly great one.  As the pastor continued with the alter call I found myself checking the time impatiently.  During the most important time in a potential Christian’s life, I lost sight of what was important in lue of my personal entertainment.

How often do we just punch the clock at church, work, or with family?  Why do we not relish every moment of our lives simply because of the blessing we are given to draw one more breath and walk through this wondrous earth?  As I drove home, ashamed of my thoughts I wrote:

“Dear God,

Soften a hardened heart who's sanguine color has been dulled by calcification.  Make passionate beating break brittle bone overgrown on a once wildly fierce muscle.”

Do not simply skate through the repetitive, average, or dull moments.  Allow your passion to be ignited and reinvest into your world.  Be the garlic that is an agent of transformation to the potato.  The Bible says we are salt.  It is not the world that is full of life, but the life that is in you that brings savor to the Earth.  Do not mail it in.  You are full of spirit and wonder.   You are Beautiful.
