Our life is made of lessons. Good lessons. Bad lessons. Some inspiring, some disheartening. We start learning these kinds of lessons before we can speak or answer a question. We continue on through school and to the end of our days.
Some days we learn what we want to add to our life, other days things we want to avoid at all cost.
A movie, a song, a sermon, a painting; all can speak to us in a moment that affects our inner being. If we let it.
There are words we read or hear that stick with us forever. Those words can jar our thinking, arrest our thoughts, and adjust our compass.
Words. Meanings. Messages. Perspectives. Opinions. Thoughts.
Things to ponder that change the very makeup of our person.
As one who ponders, this stuff is food for my soul.
One message from a movie has made me reconsider my goals. One line from a country song has stoked the flame of my passion for living a life of impact.
Let yourself be moved by what you hear and see. Settle your mind and take it in. You don’t have to keep it if you don’t want to, but let it in for a brief moment and ponder its message.
Be moved by the things you experience. It is a lovely, lovely thing.
Stirred in my core
