What lessons are left for me to learn now?
I think of many times in my life when I had to make lists or my to-do lists, it always seemed that there was always so much to do and I was always afraid if I didn’t write them down even the most minute detail, I would forget something and sometimes at the end of my list I would write Make a new list! Lololol
Now that I am much older and my life is unburdened, my time is my own. I no longer need to make lists unless it is a grocery list.
My mind takes me to a scene from Starwars where Luke Skywalker is in his x-wing fighter jet. He needs to shoot that single shot into the narrow crevice of the death star to destroy it. It has to be timed just right and at the right time. He has Darth Vader in hot in pursuit and he is doing all he can to dodge the assault coming in all directions.
Now it is I in Luke’s spot in the xwing fighter jet. Satan is in hot pursuit and I am dodging the fiery darts of hell. I start to put on my visor to lock onto the spot to shoot the final lazer, but a voice speaks to me. “Debi Use the Force, trust your instincts”… Etc. Etc. Etc.
Although it seems comical, and I don’t mean to make light of it in any way, to me life is like that. I no longer need to make lists because as long as I continue to seek out my Heavenly Fathers help through prayer each day He will guide me in what I need to do. It is He that I put my trust in. He is the force in my life.
