TODAY, I have 2 more QUESTIONS for you to ponder. Firstly: How might the world look if each and every one of us claimed the vocation of being a WARRIOR of love (more on that below)? Secondly, do you have regular practices of Places of Pause (PoPs)? In the midst of the rising voices and protests around the United States and globe, these PoPs can help us each listen to and discern what is OUR PART in the voices rising.
I believe, that as warriors,
when the dignity, security, and well-being of those
who BElong to us
—one or many—
are being challenged,
we do something.
We standTALL. We shout. We stomp.
We are upstanders.
We can’t not.
I wonder: As a warrior, what do you want to speak or shout about – and in what spirit?
3 nudges for inspired ACTion to fuel your PoP practice & warrior vocation:
- enJOY the below mini PoP right now and explore what being a WARRIOR in life looks like for you. Or, immerse yourself in the full PoP (a 10-minute reading/experience) that will encourage you to be still and surrender, to ponder and discern, and to engage and commit. (FREE)
- WATCH this 10-minute PoP on being a WARRIOR, peruse the playlist this week and pick out a few other PoPs that intrigue you, or dive right in and commit to the whole 40-day video journey in which I guide you through 40 daily 10-minute PoPs. (FREE on your favorite social media platform: Facebook | IGTV | YouTube)
- COMMIT to the 40-day journey this summer through Soulfully Ablaze: A 40-Day Journey to Light Up Your Life (And the World) – check it out in print, audio, or e-book. If you want the book but can’t afford full price, email me and we’ll figure out a way to get you a copy.
This is the second of five summer vocational nudges I mentioned a few weeks ago when we began with BRIDGE-BUILDING. In all of these vocations, but particularly with the ferocity of this warrior work, the robust rhythms of PoPs are crucial. Today, continue your WARRIOR exploration below with a mini or full PoP from Soulfully Ablaze.
Place of Pause
A MINI PoP on being a WARRIOR. Imagine what or for whom you would be willing to fight. Is it in the context of your everyday, with those you currently serve and love? Or is it about reaching out to a new someone that is capturing your attention and heart? Do you not know your something to live or fight for yet? Are you still on the hunt? Don’t compare, measure, or allow the messages that you are not enough, moving too slow, or going too fast to diminish you. Keep walking, exploring, and trusting—even before you understand it … full PoP
Let go of the warrior energy you carry,
your longing to make a difference,
your passion to free, rescue, encourage.
Here, right here.
See what confines, what saps, what discourages and
PONDER. What would you sweat for, train for, with ferocity and commitment? What are one or two things that you have been exhausted by in your experiences of fighting or working hard for something in life?
ENGAGE. Dialogue today in your way within your own, private, personal connection with the Sacred or with someone you deeply trust about this vocational invitation to be a warrior. Commit to doing one tangible thing today from this exchange of conversation … full PoP
MY FRIEND, to be a part of this formidable, unstoppable army, you need only claim it.
You are a warrior of love.
You are loved.
We belong to each other.
Let’s standTALL together and light up the world!
