Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 1049 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
Fix Our Gaze – Meditation Monday
Wisdom – the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1049 of our trek, and it is time for Meditation Monday.
Taking time to relax, refocus, and reprioritize our lives is crucial in order to create a living legacy. For you, it may just be time alone for quiet reflection. You may utilize structured meditation practices. In my life meditation includes reading and reflecting on God’s Word and praying. It is a time to renew my mind, refocus on what is most important, and make sure that I am nurturing my soul, mind, and body. As you come along with me on our trek each Meditation Monday, it is my hope and prayer that you too will experience a time for reflection and renewing of your mind.
We cannot always see life circumstances clearly when we are in the middle of them. We may question and doubt God’s plan and will for our lives. In our Meditation Monday today I want us to reflect on…
Fix Our Gaze
On the wall of a German concentration camp, a prisoner had carved the following words:
“I believe in the sun, even though it doesn’t shine.
I believe in love, even when it isn’t shown.
I believe in God, even when he doesn’t speak.”
What hand could have cut such a conviction? What eyes could have seen good in such horror? There’s only one answer. Eyes that chose to see the unseen.
There are many circumstances and situations that we face in life that we just cannot understand. They don’t make any sense. They seem to be so unfair. It may be a spouse or parent that is suffering from cancer. It may be a child who is plucked from your life through an accident. It may be a marriage that has crumbled around you, even though you did all you could to preserve it.
In our lives, it was nearly two years ago when we found out our granddaughter Hazel had leukemia at age 2 1/2. She is still receiving treatments, and the prognosis looks favorable, but we still don’t understand the why of it. We must accept by faith that God ultimately has a bigger purpose in these situations—a purpose that we may never fully understand they why. We can choose to see either the hurt or the Healer. The direction our lives will lead us will determine which we choose.
Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 4:18, “So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
That is a wrap for today’s meditation, next week we will continue our trek on Meditation Monday as we take time to reflect on what is most important in creating our living legacy. On tomorrow’s trek, we will explore another wisdom quote. This 3-minute wisdom supplement will assist you in becoming healthy, wealthy and wise each day. Thank you for joining me on this trek called life. Encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
