Monday Meditation: You Are More Than A Body Full Of Bones


Have you ever stumbled upon something so beautiful and perfect that it caused you to stop what you were doing and change the course of your plans? It happened to me today while I was seeking a photo via Photopin for the post I was to share with you all today. It is a beautiful meditation, and reflection. I had to share these words with you. They were a beautiful treasure I discovered, and how could I not share with you? As I read, I found the words of this meditation and beautiful image prompted scripture in my mind, and so it may be for you. Ponder these words today, let them be like precious nutrients for your mind, body and soul:

You are more than a body full of bones. 

You are stronger than the spine that allows you to stand, or the ribs that enclose your heart. 

Your skin is thicker than the delicate veins running beneath lead you to believe.

Your name holds more meaning than simply the letters that make it up.

Your spirit is filled with more light than the stars that speckle the blackened sky, or the streetlights to guide home a lost soul.

The vibrations in your voice tell more than just the words that are spoken through it.

You are more than what you possess; money cannot buy what you are.
You are the pigment in a rainbow to signify the ending of a storm.
Your potential reaches further than your job title.
Your dreams are more than just a false reality to be awoken from.
Your life is more than just years along an infinite timeline, it is made up of moments that change the course of history and validate a life.
You will not grow weaker as the years go by; you will be enriched, growing and expanding, much like a tree with many more branches and leaves.
Eventually, you will be somebody’s home; their trusses to hold them up, their shingles to protect from the rain, and their window to a clear view.
You are more than what you can fathom; 
more than a name, more than a body, more than a voice.

You are more than a body full of bones.

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
 They will be like a tree planted by the water
    that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
    its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
    and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8

This was definitely and unexpected Playdate with God!
It’s also a Miscellaneous Monday
Possibly a Holy Experience
and I do desire to be The Better Mom, though I fall on my face an awful lot.
