Be Still and Let God Move

God moves through us. We are put on this earth to serve and to love. God is love and so should we be.  The Sufi poet Hafiz wrote:

I am a hole in a flute
that the Christ’s breath moves through
listen to this music
I am the concert from the mouth of every creature
singing with the myriad chorus

I am a hole in a flute
that the Christ’s breath moves through
listen to this music

We are all servants put on this earth to serve and love humanity.  This journey, called life, which we are on really isn’t about us, but rather about what we can do for others to enhance their journey.  Too many times individuals get wrapped up in the “What about me?” thoughts rather than the “What can I do for you?” mentality.  Once you make the shift in perspective, you will see the blessings that come with giving to others and doing for others.  The Universal law is simple: the more you give the more you receive.

There are so many ways to give to others and to allow God to use.  Each morning I have quiet time and I ask God to speak through me.  I let Him know that I am ready to be used and that I am available.  I ask God to guide me and place me where I need to be used.  Each day I say, “If you send them, I will serve them.” And periodically throughout the day I check in with Him by being still for a few minutes and letting Him speak to me.

I am constantly amazed that I am always at the right place at the right time.  Knowing that I am open to be used to serve anyone and everyone God willing sends me people to serve.  I love knowing that I am open to be used and that daily He moves through me.  I truly try to be a flute through which His breath moves, His loving breath.

In order to really be a servant you have to “let go and let God”. This is the hard part.  I know personally I still have to remind myself that I am not in control and that I am a servant put on this earth to fulfill my purpose.  While at times I have to have a conversation with myself and say, “Dr. Martha, it’s not about you! Girl, you are not in control anyways so just let go and let God move in the way He has to!” A conversation, which never fails to humble me and put me back on track.

Being still and allowing God to move through you allows you to stay on purpose. It’s in stillness that you silence the chatter that often clouds your thoughts and keeps you from hearing God’s voice.  When you are able to hear the sweet music of your soul, your soul’s purpose.  Start today, get still and start serving.

Love. Laugh. Adjust.

To blog or not to blog?

In regards to blogging, there was really no question.  I knew that upon turning 30, it was time to start many new and exciting chapters in my life and among the new experiences for me would be blogging.   After reading a few friends and colleagues blogs I was amazed by their knowledge, awed by their thoughts, provoked to expand myself beyond my own comfort zone, and motivated to begin my own blog to share my heart, mind, and passion.

So, here I sit on January 1, 2010 writing my first blog with millions of thoughts berating my mind eager to appear on the screen that sits in front of me.  For my first blog, I decided I would begin, simply, by stating the purpose of my blog: “To Ignite”.  To ignite what you might ask? Well, the answer to that question lies in what is to come.  I don’t know that that is something I can decide or dictate but rather something that will simply unveil itself as you read.

It is my intent that my blog emulates my spirit, emotions, thoughts, and passion as I share the intricate working of my mind with you. Together through this process we will grow and reach new heights, feeling stretched outside of our comfort zones and compelled to rise up.  Enjoy!
