Having the Time of My Life

What if you could have the time of your life, even in the midst of a great trial?

There is one earth creature that is forever joyful, and that is the dolphin. I've been studying dolphins, you see, because God led me to heart healing through them. Dolphins are leading me into a healing that always seemed just beyond my reach. I'd get so far and then flop, you know?

My current stressful situation is such that it would normally be impossible to cope without some type of relief or mechanism to handle the pain. There are very few people who can handle even knowing what I’m going through. But in the midst of it, there are two truths that are clear to me, yet not yet fully manifested:

  1. I can create beauty out of this chaos, channeling the very energy of the distress into the makings of a work of art. Dolphins love stormy waves. When the ocean churns they are not fearful; they abandon themselves to the sheer exhilaration of the massive energy of chaos. They plunge deep and launch themselves gleefully into the air. The power of the storm charges them with a joy that cannot be contained. Instead of depression or despair, they leap for joy. My act of faith is to PLAY!
  2. All negativity targeted toward me is changed once it enters my personal atmosphere. My atmosphere is something I have control over. What is meant to harm me is turned into a blessing that contains twice as much positive energy as the negative. A double portion is mine, if I remember not to despair, and to keep my atmosphere clean, full of love and trust that Someone greater than I is in full control. My act of faith is to grin in the face of disaster by choosing to remember at all times I am loved. Instead of hunkering down or hiding, I will put myself out there in the world and take on new challenges. I will believe I can do the impossible. I have done it many times before and I will do it again.

I cross the bridge from my current situation to my desired outcome and through the doorway of hope. I touch the knob. It moves easily. It’s unlocked by using these two keys. I am free to walk through to the other side.

Now, your turn… imagine crossing this very bridge. You come to a door. On the other side is your thriving life. What does that look like to you? What are the barriers you foresee? What prevents you from walking through the doorway? Listen to your heart… take action!

Write down what the Spirit leads you to see and do!
