September 11, 2020--Finding Inner Authority
The more unstable life seems,
the more we gravitate toward the “security”
promised by authority figures.
We marry authority figures,
elect them, go to their churches
and join their cults.
Only when authority figures are unmasked
do we learn to take our power back
and pick up the pieces of our lives.
Whenever we uproot ourselves
to follow the empty promises of others,
we tend to get beaten up by our experiences.
Then, we return to over lives humbled,
shovels in hand, and begin the work
of planting our own garden.
Abandoning our roots, we learn to find them.
Seeking authority in other people
we learn to find it in ourselves.

This is very relevant to me! I still feel very unsecure in following my heart out there, where people often don`t understand me at all. I am easily influenced by the opinion of my husband, of my friends, other people, who are important for me or certain authority figures.
Thanks for sharing, Jeannie. It has taken me years to claim my inner authority. It required opening my heart and trusting that God always whispers directions to me if I listen.
