For your consideration…

Words matter. Even the tiniest of words have enormous power. Yesterday the word was “yet.” Today the word is “if.”

Why does if carry so much power? It is because it keeps us from being fulling committed to the moment we are in. “If” conjures up scenarios that keep us from seeing and taking all that is put it front of us in this moment. “If only,” “what if?” “if then,” etc. forces us into a holding pattern. It can cause us to freeze. It can cause us to procrastinate.

We are given everything we need for this moment. We only need to see it. We need to be fully present in it and make it the most it can be for our highest good and the highest good of all. Any if that needs to be considered will be put before us in another moment. Remember the sayings, “You only need to see the next step.” or”You don’t don’t need to see the destination just as far as the headlights are shining.” “If” is like that. We only need to deal with what we have right now. We don’t need to know everything else that is coming our way.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
