Imagine if we forgot to take care of our personal hygiene every day; or imagine a mother forgetting to feed her child. Or what if we forgot to go to work and didn’t bother paying our bills? The thought of these actions taking place may sound unrealistic because these are common sense daily routines and activities we make, but imagine if we lost the consistency in doing these things? It may seem impossible because these are important duties that must be fulfilled, yet at times we fail to remain consistent with even great responsibilities.
These responsibilities that I am referring to are our spiritual journey. Our spiritual journey is our walk of Life. Our walk of Life is the continual discovery of our true Self in the image and likeness our Creator-God. However, we can’t discover our true Self to the fullest if there are always interruptions or distractions that makes us sway away from being consistent.
What if we really took time and desired to be consistent in our spiritual journey? A walk that doesn’t require any pressure that says “you must” but an inspiring thrust that reminds you of how great it is to renew and revive your soul; desire self analysis; devote some time in prayer and or serving others. Whatever it takes to constantly become aware everyday of our divine nature is a step in discovering our true Self.
The consistency of our spiritual life shouldn’t be a burden, but a desire to have a heart like David and be a man/woman after God’s own heart. This heart however, is not the physical but spiritual. We must strive to become consistent in being like our Father by remaining/abiding in him through our thoughts, words, emotions, and actions. This is a walk that keeps us rooted and steadfast in our understanding that we are his precious stones. Therefore, we must remain strong in all that we do.
It is written, “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.” (1 Corinthians 16:13). Keep in mind that remaining consistent is not always an easy job for the mind to attain, yet it is an everyday demand that requires our undivided attention, devotion and strength. And it is all worth it because it allows us to become our best.
The more we are aware of something, the more we become what we are aware of. Let us be reminded that every day is an opportunity to grow in divine knowledge and understanding. Every day is a new day to share a new revelation of the beauty of Christ. Nevertheless, we must learn to keep nurturing our divine intimacy and oneness with our Father from within. And this requires that you are faithful in being consistent, yes being conscious every second of every minute of every hour of everyday. Soon this consistency becomes your way of living.
So let’s keep the awareness of being consistent in what really matters, and that is You. It is never too late. Keep the flow of being reminded that only one thing matters and that is you discover the treasures God has for you, by remaining consistent in your walk of Life.
It is written, “Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58).
Until then, make it a productive One,
