Blessings Upon You

"Your time may come. Do not be too sad, Sam. You cannot be always torn in two. You will have to be one and whole, for many years. You have so much to enjoy and to be, and to do.”  ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

Christian life is not easy. It requires commitment and focus, study and determination. We must choose each day to align our words and actions with God's desires for our lives rather than our own. The quote above illustrates the challenge of being a faithful servant of Christ balanced with a person in the world. We must be both spiritual and worldly, whole.

Most of my life has been case study after case study of attempting to find this balance and failing. After reaching a point of despair, I endeavored to complete the Ignatius Spiritual Exercises, a life-changing and inspiring  series of topics of study and reflection that helped to redefine what it means to achieve spiritual worldliness. The resulting flood of ideas and writing that resulted make up most of the content of this blog.

The goal is to focus on actionable ways of thinking that can help make faith a real part of every day life. A way to find balance through inner world structure and outer world projection.

Allow God into your heart and permit him to define your core being and then put that being into the world as a channel for God's love in the world.
