I am searching for stories.
People ask “What do I want to write about?”
“A wide range of topics, spirituality, nature, conflict resolution” is my reply.
I am challenged to narrow down what I want to write about. I see stories everywhere. The wide range can be overwhelming, so inclusive it’s almost impossible to select one specific moment. I am aware of specific moments that expand and include generations.
Words, that begin with one meaning, then change. An action that brings about one feeling, then changes.
Hearing, over and over “Lord, I am not worthy. Just say the word and I am healed.” Hearing that, feeling humble, part of a sinful community. Over and over. Inflicted by male, white, celibate leaders.
Then, one day, hearing the words. Feeling sick, toxic, angry that those words had formed and institutionalized beliefs of unworthiness. Over and over, those words were written in and around my body, creating a sickness so complete entire generations were inflicted with unworthiness. Realizing, slowly, humbly, my story is sacred and valuable.
What do I want to write about?
Every story is worthy.
Every story has beauty.
I want to write about the Radiance!!
I want to write on your heart ~
