A Special Invitation

My life was transformed today by my time spent with Courtenay Smith Brown at Shabach Yoga. I am not exaggerating.

I have known since December that 2019 would be my best year yet. Every step of the way, every day of every week, every week of every month thus far, I have expected and experienced amazing things.

I used to expect GREATLY just like this, all the time - a long time ago, in my youth. But life, adulthood, hurts done to me, and mistakes made by me gradually sucked GREAT EXPECTATIONS out of me. Until I was content just being “above average”. Glowing just enough to be seen but not bright enough to be blindingly brilliant.

But I wasn’t really content and in truth, my embers were dying out. Because when you are meant to be brilliantly bright, anything less is just darkness.

So 2019 has been my year to turn my lights back on. And in doing so, I have refused to allow the limitations of others to dim my light. So I no longer surrender my power and brilliance to THEY.

If THEY can’t fathom how a God-fearing, Holy-Spirit filled, Jesus follower might also be a barefoot, tattoo-wearing, waist beaded yogi, that is not my problem. My spiritual buds have blossomed so I’ve outgrown the sanctimonious, self-righteous box THEY originally constructed for me.

And I’m too distracted to hear THEIR concerns for my “lost” soul. I’m busy becoming the world changing servant leader God created me to be. I’ve never felt more “found”.

So if this midnight prose disqualifies me from being a part of THEIR club, or being invited to THEIR church, or playing in THEIR sandbox, it’s cool. I’m not alone.

God has gifted me with beautiful souls, like this blindingly brilliant woman, who have also chosen to walk the road less traveled. And there are more of us everyday, choosing to revolutionize the world with a restorative love that sets people free.

I am free tonight. I am so free. I am not worried. I am not anxious. I am not afraid. Because I trust God.

My life was transformed today by my restorative time spent with Courtenay Smith Brown at Shabach Yoga. This is not an understatement.
