“He did not bring us out this far to take us back again
He brought us out to take us into the promised land
Though there be giants in the land, I will not be afraid
He brought us out to take us into the promised land”
Someone wrote this awesome song
I don’t know who
But I used to sing it a lot at church and on my own (particularly, the dark days)
And to this day, I still love it
It was going over and over in my mind this morning as I considered my life and the life of my clients…
As I considered that there were dark days sometimes…
Those days when you feel like you must have been mistaken about your calling
Those days when you feel like you are abandoned
And it is tempting to look back and tell yourself that life was easier ‘then’
And maybe, you should just give up and stop
The giants just seem soooo huge and they are beating down on you
Surely, no human being can be expected to handle this
Surely, there is some mistake
And maybe, you better go back before you go much further and burn all bridges completely
But at moments like that, you gotta KNOW that you were not brought/led/guided all the way out here for you to be left alone
Yes, your perception may be that the giants are too real
The giants may be debt
Or relationships falling apart as you become soooo unlike the fear-driven soul you used to be
Or even feeling really tired as you work yourself hard trying to bring your vision to life
In some ways, you could almost see how the above are just a part of the journey to your promised land
But what if the giant is something you did wrong?
Something you now wholeheartedly regret but the guilt is killing you alive
And so you begin to tell yourself some story of not deserving anything good and so of course, you need to go wallow in a ‘less than’ life because that is all people like you, should ever have
In some ways, it is harder when the giant is you, isn’t it?
You feel completely justified in beating yourself up and keeping yourself from your own good
Just so you know, that is still a nonsense of a nonsense…
You are being led/guided to your promised land and the only thing that can take you off it, IS YOU!
Regardless of how justified you may think you are for punishing yourself, it would still be pretty silly!
You did not get this far, only to go back to the start
Forgive that other person or event
Yes, you may have made mistakes but the biggest mistake would be using a past error to make your WHOLE LIFE a mistake.
So release yourself and keep on moving because honey, sometimes, it is darkest before the storm breaks and the sun shines through
DON’T YOU DARE take yourself off course!!!
Though there be giants in the land, you need not be afraid
The Divine brought you out this far to take you all the way to the promised land…
IF YOU ARE WILLING.
