Leaps of Faith

Today is Leap Day, February 29th.  So why is there a leap year? Without leap years, the months would become untethered from the seasons. In other words, our winters would become summers and our summers would become winters.

Do you ever feel untethered?  Sometimes when I’ve been so busy “doing” and not enough time simply “being” I can feel a bit untethered. We live in such a fast-paced culture that we can wind up sacrificing ourselves in trying to keep up.

Letting go is a leap of faith. We owe it to ourselves to take more of those leaps of faith.

I want to share this daily message from Unity’s 40 Days Let Go, Let God Lenten booklet by Rev. Christina Garza:

I let go of overwhelm.

We live in a fast-paced culture that creates expectations and demands that we stay busy and productive. Whether we realize it or not, most of us create an identity and self-value that is tied to working and doing. This creates the sense that there is never enough time, so we sacrifice rest and self-care to do more, be more, and get more. As a result, we may become sick, tired, frustrated, and overwhelmed. We create a disconnect from our authentic selves.

When we turn our eyes to God within, we remember we are whole and complete and our worth is measured by what we are, not what we do. We liberate ourselves from pressure, perfectionism, paralysis, and pain. Our spiritual inheritance is to be happy and free, so we change our thinking and focus on what brings us joy, connection, and community.

Beautiful people, life is not meant to be hard.

Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give your rest. – Matthew 11:18

 

I invite you to let go and take a leap of Faith!

 

Love, Light, & Sparkles,

Rev. Carol
