Apostle Peter: Recharting Our Course
Ehwaz Rune: Horse and Rider, Trust in Spirit
Ann: Peter,* why are you always late?
Peter: (Smilng) Because I have so many things on my mind, and I am always sure there is room for one more.
In Jesus time, I was the quartermaster, responsible for procuring what was necessary for daily life on the road. Perhaps you may like to think of me as the concierge, the one who makes things run smoothly. And in addition I was the navigator who plotted out the course of our journeys, which town next, where to stay, with whom to meet, how to procure food.
And yet much of the time I found these functions to be superseded by the overweening trust that Jesus had in his God, his guides, and the already plotted direction of his life. So I followed along as best I could, always playing catch up, just a bit behind the beat and on the scramble.
And so it is today in spirit though now I smile at my attempts to make everything come out according to a perfect equation. Thus are the burdens of those of us with mathematical bent. We try to make it fit, to come out right - whatever “right” may be. And because we don’t know what “right” may be, we are continually surprised. Sometimes pleasantly, sometimes not, but in every case we are learning to give way before the unseen plan, to trust that, however unexpected and sometimes painful, our way is true because it follows the celestial course.
I asked Ann for time here to remind those of you who plan and calculate and try to make everything come out right that, while your skills are needed, important, and helpful, they are nonetheless secondary to the faith that lets you put your trust in your guided path and allows you to cheerfully recompute your charts over and over again as required by life events and spiritual callings.
We live to serve, yes, but we also live to celebrate our part in the moving cosmos, a part that can be sensed but never fully seen. Hand in hand with Spirit, we travel together, constantly evolving, charting, surrendering, recharting, over and over again until trust is as second nature to us as is our practical skills.
Competence and faith, an unbeatable combination but greater than these, as Paul has said, is the guiding force of love in our lives, love the master, all else the facilitators, serving by walking in the shadow of Spirit's love.
