We might need to rekindle something before we recognize it. Depending on where we are on our journey, we may need to take some time to rekindle what was once there before it begins to feel familiar to us again. And the beautiful thing about our relationship with the Savior and His love for us, is that the fire is never too far gone out that we cannot find enough of a spark to bring it back to life. There is ALWAYS a way back to Him, and His arm is “stretched out STILL”.
Our divine heritage traces back well before our first breath on earth. We severely undermine our potential and sell ourselves short when we measure our progress against the world's standard and disregard the head start we were ALL given—the knowledge that we are sons and daughters of God. And though those memories fade as we enter this mortal experience, the divinity remains. We came to this earth already comprised of everything we need to return home to our Heavenly Parents.
Leave notes for others along the way. Morgan Harper Nichols so beautifully said, “Tell the story of the mountains you climbed. Your words could become a page in someone else’s survival guide.” Lyrics from a famous country song remind us, “When you get where you're going, don't forget, turn back around and help the next one in line.” We were never meant alone. We were never expected to figure it all out ourselves. God weaves our paths together in intricate and intentional ways so that just as someone finishes a climb, they are in position to help someone begin theirs—we just have to look up, notice, and answer the call.
"Trust the guides you have been given from Him, rather than turning solely to the world to measure your personal worth and find your way."
"Whatever you must leave behind to follow the path to your heavenly home will one day seem like no sacrifice at all."
I am returning to my heavenly home where Their loving embrace awaits. My divine heritage will guide me and my faith in Christ will strengthen me as I recognize the path He has marked before me.
