Something to think and pray about this week

Nature’s resilience to harsh conditions and extremes of weather is quite amazing. Different creatures adapt in different ways. Some dig themselves into burrows to ride out the winter storms, while those with wings take off to warmer climes, risking hazardous migratory journeys.

What about us? How do we react when things get tough? Perhaps nature’s wintering can teach us something. Will we dig in and hide until the troubles have passed? Will we try to fly away in the hope of escaping them?

Maybe wisdom invites us to do neither, and both. Not to hide away, but to go deeper into our hearts and draw on resources we perhaps never knew we possessed. Not to flee, but to rise above the immediate situation, and see it from a higher perspective.

What difficulties or trouble do you face now? What’s your instinct? Burrow? Fly? How might you modify your way of reacting?
