I watched the movie I spoke of yesterday and I realized I have deeply admired very few historical women in my life. Probably from lack of learning about many of them, but all the same. The few I have held in high regard and felt a kindred spirit to all have one amazing thread.
They believed deeply in God and felt a strong inner connection to the Divine and let that be a dominant part of their existence. What drove them to be who they were and do what they did.
Joan of Arc, Hellen Keller, Mother Theresa, Harriet Tubman.
This is the commonality. They let their faith and courage lead them. They had a belief so strong that it catapulted their lives from being marginal or memorable to being truly extraordinary.
I hadn’t seen this before. I hadn’t seen the thread that reaches inside and tugs at me as well.
I have been speaking to God a lot lately, more than usual. I have been trying to learn more, do more, be more connected. That is what gives me the most clarity in life. That is what grounds me spiritually and gives me true joy.
I don’t know that I can put myself on equal standing with these great women. I don’t know that I will lead a crusade, give dignity to those shunned and left to rot by society, inspire the world to care more for each other, or lead people to salvation.
I only truly know that I will follow wherever God leads and needs me. And I will keep speaking my truth and keep trying to be an example of the ideals I hold dearly in my heart.
And I hope you all find your own inner source of love and connection to Divinity and that it may it guide you towards the true happiness and peace you deserve❣️
