Dear child, have you ever thrown a peb­ble into a pond and watched as the rip­ples ra­di­ated out­ward? Maybe you then tossed an­other peb­ble in and fol­lowed those rip­ples as they came into con­tact with the oth­ers. If you imag­ine con­tin­u­ing to toss stones into that pond, you can imag­ine an en­tire web of con­flict­ing wa­ter cur­rents. That’s like your spirit when you have too much to han­dle.

When you come— as a small con­flicted pond—to your Fa­ther in spirit, you are brought into con­tact with a vast, pow­er­ful, co­her­ent majesty that’s more like the ocean. When you be­lieve in your Fa­ther’s mag­nif­i­cence and al­low the Holy Spirit to marry with your spirit, it’s like the beau­ti­ful waves and tides of the ocean over­take ev­ery­thing in you that flows at cross pur­poses. Your Fa­ther’s cur­rents re­order your rip­ples, and you’re left feel­ing clean, whole and pur­pose­ful.

This is why it’s so es­sen­tial that you spend a few min­utes ev­ery day of­fer­ing up all that drags and tugs at your heart to your Fa­ther, My­self and the Spirit. We three can work in lov­ing tan­dem to cre­ate or­der and pur­pose in your spirit. Af­ter just five min­utes of this re­order­ing, you’re left with a residue of joy and peace that will last through­out your day. Let’s try it now!

“Truly, I say to you, who­ever says to this moun­tain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but be­lieves that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.”
