Santa Fe, New Mexico
Faith is the predominant theme in this blog, whether or not it’s overtly conveyed. During the past 10 months, I’ve written about my experiences that called for faith that God will do what he says he will. Does God know what we need, what we really need, and will he provide it? Does he mean it when he says we are more important than sparrows and lilies?
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.” (Matthew 6:26-28 NIV)
God continually seeks to teach me the wisdom in these verses because I’ve needed to consciously rely upon God for everything … every little thing. I must be a remedial case. Yet, when you’re in a sustained place of utter dependence upon God, you come to know God, the work of the Trinity, yourself, and the world in a vibrant, fresh way. The experience sharpens your spiritual senses.
I find it interesting that this particular journey of faith turned out to be along the Santa Fe Trail, literally and figuratively. “Santa Fe” is Spanish for “holy faith.” I’ve been led by faith to Santa Fe.
This blog has been a companion to me during a unique season, and you all have graciously walked along. How grateful I am for you, dear readers! Thank you!
However, life is changing. I am not able to continue this blog because of the need to focus on a new job and give renewed attention to other areas of life.
Again, many thanks for sharing in the Via Peregrini!
