The Olympics

Olympic Rings

I’m not going to lie. In my household, we’re pretty big Olympics fans. We watch it every night (obsessively). I’m always amazed at the time and effort the athletes devote to their sport. They must LOVE what they do. At least, I hope they do.

Which gets me to thinking about us normal humans, and what we’re capable of. Those athletes have very visible talents, but God has given each of us gifts and talents as well—whether others know about them or not. And every gift is a tool through which you can experience the joy of God, if you will but invite Him to be with you while you USE it. I’ve found that more often than not, the greatest joy arising from using my gifts and talents usually comes when no one is around except me and Him.

This puts me in mind of the conversation between the Artist and the Spirit from The Great Divorce:

Spirit: “[In Heaven] they aren’t distinguished—no more than anyone else. Don’t you understand? The Glory flows into everyone, and back from everyone: like light and mirrors…”

Artist: “Do you mean there are no famous men?”

Spirit: “They are all famous. They are all known, remembered, recognized by the only Mind that can give a perfect judgment.”

In the private times and solitary places, create, practice, write, play, garden, run, cook, sing, build, walk, study…do. Simply because He has put it in you to do so. You are recognized by the only Mind that can give a perfect judgment.

Wow! My husband and I couldn’t put this book down. It sure got our hearts pumping! Exciting, surprising, inspiring — but also arresting. It made me stop and think about the realities of God’s purpose for our lives, the very real “battles” we face, and His power & strength available to us in the midst of it all. Rich imagery. So good!
