Meeting Notes: 01/01/2020
It’s been a long time since we had a planning meeting. Me and God. He was scheduling them, but I wasn’t showing up. I kept saying I had a conflict. Truth is I was the conflict. I prioritized everything else above this meeting, and it showed. So this morning we met. We started at the beginning.
In the beginning…Not a beginning. Not a reboot. Not a reset. THE beginning. The start. Of life.
God created…Not me. I was not in control. Not the decider. Not the creator. Of my life.
the heavens and the earth.Not a lottery ticket. Not a boat. Not a thing. God created space. For life.
The earth was without form, and void…Not fully furnished. Not yet. Still moldable. Still changeable. Like my life.
And darkness was over the face of the deep….Not a smile. Not resolutions. All a blank slate yet to be filled. Like this year.
And the Spirit of God…Not a feeling. Not a politician. Not alone. In the darkness we are not alone.
Was hovering over the face of the waters.Not far. Not smothering. Present. Near. Preparing for the next step.
And God said…Not built. Not imagined. He spoke. His words are powerful. Words are powerful.
Let there be light.Not a bulb. Not a spark. All light. For all of us. To guide us.
And God saw…Not overheard. Not assumed. He observed. He still does. He sees me.
that the light was good.Not because of circumstances. Inherently. Light is good. Look for the light. Reflect it.
At the end of most meetings (at least good ones), everyone walks away knowing what they need to do next. Some workplaces refer to them as action items. These are my action items for this year.
- Words are powerful.
- Be good.
- Be the light.
- Meet again tomorrow.
