I watched a cute movie about a group of girls attending a week-long girls’ camp. It had it’s fun, enlightening, tense, thoughtful, and serious moments. Well done.
Part of the movie showed the girls on a hike which had a specific destination in mind. They were given a map and compass. However, after a couple hours, they realized they were hiking in circles. One of the ‘newer’ girls took the map and was able to orient it in the right direction to reach their final destination. They arrived soon afterwards.
I began to realize how often I had actually described my own life as ‘walking in circles’. It often was difficult for me to get out of the long and lonely ‘ruts’ that were driving me crazy. And I was reminded of how, just recently, someone had come along to say just the right and simple words that I had needed to hear. This person was the ‘miracle’ that I needed for me to climb out of the ‘rut’ and resume my life’s journey.
I needed a spiritual correction to my false beliefs about myself and others. Those words gave me hope and knowledge, thus giving me the ‘compass’ to find my way back ‘home’.
