Human Rebooting

Much like a computer, there are times when we humans could use a complete rebooting.  Following the 18 month long campaigns to elect a new President of the United States and the ugliness and divisiveness that has prevailed, I have found myself in need of a complete reboot.

I feel I need to start fresh, to re-center myself.  I want all the mess to fall away and to engage a new day filled with love, patience, kindness and mutual respect.  So, where’s the Escape button??  

Instead of searching the keyboard, my plan for the big reboot is first to pray to God for His guidance.  He never steers me wrong.  He immediately knows who’s calling and He is always there, never too busy.

So, He reminds me that in the scriptures I find my answers…

“Follow me,” Jesus said. 

What?

“Come to me all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.”      Luke 18:22

Ah, there it is.  “Heavily burdened” and then, “rest.”  I need an emotional rest and I bet you may as well.  

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”   1 Corinthians 13:4-8 

“And now these three remain. Faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”         1 Corinthians 13: 13

That’s it…hit that spiritual button and its, indeed, a new day!!  A day of renewal, fresh and full of decency, humility, love, and hope for ALL.

Praise God from Whom ALL blessings come!
