“Finding the Sacred Thread” (06/04/23)

Rev. Mary Murray Shelton

Some people seem to come into the world with a sense of purpose, obvious gifts, or just knowing what they want to do with their lives. Many of us are clueless about these things until something grabs our attention, hijacks our minds and hearts, and becomes our passion. Sometimes this happens in a clear way and we pursue that passion throughout our adult lives.

Other times our interest and devotion wears off, or becomes impossible later in life and we’re left wondering what we’re actually here for, if not that. These experiences are clues—like Hansel and Gretel’s breadcrumbs, but more practical—to our personal GPS, or Guidance Provided by Spirit. Paying attention to the clues leads us to greater fulfillment in our lives.
