“Faith is an oasis in the heart
which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking.”
Kahlil Gibran

There was a long period of time in my life where my heart was empty and my mind was at war. Why does not have any bearing on this message. For those of you that have been in that place, you know what I am referring to.

Like you, I have had my shares of upsets and obstacles and somewhere in my journey, my heart began to fill and my mind began to quiet down. It was not that I stopped thinking, but rather, I started trusting and knowing. This was a powerful and unsettling time for me as I had spent nearly 40 years of my life with an empty heart, a head filled with knowledge and a mind at war.

To now be in a place of quiet, hope, trust and faith was new, exciting and calming, but I had to move through this portal slowly. Like many of us, it ebbed and flowed until I finally arrived in a place where my heart is full all the time and my mind is quieter now than ever before. My attitude still needs adjusting regularly, but having a full heart has given me the willingness to see myself as I am and make the changes I need to make.

My prayer for you to day is that you fill your heart with hope and let your faith speak to you while your mind rests.
