Fears and Doubts


If you do not stand in the space where the Holy lives, fear and doubt can creep in and unsettle you. Suddenly, just prior to my departure, I am distracted and not in a place of calm.  Instead I find myself  procrastinating because I have to make some decisions about what to pack, what to leave, how to best organize myself.  Some days I think having a life partner would be helpful in these moments so that I could be spurred on.

Regardless, I find myself still excited. I wonder if my photos will turn out, if I will be safe, if my belongings will get stolen or lost, and a half dozen other whispers to knock me off my centre.  Funny how that goes. 

Perhaps I should just head to bed so that those voices are silenced. In about 36 hours I will be heading out on an adventure that you can follow here. I decided not to start a new blog since the one I was trying out did not jive with my new i-pad. I released my need to try something new at this late date. 

I shush the nay-sayer voices and know that all will be very well.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
