Spiritual Goggles

A cold won’t stop me! On Friday morning I woke up with a sore throat and the first thing I thought was it finally got to me. Everyone around me has been sick with either a cold or the flu and I rarely get sick but when I do, it starts in my throat.

Friday was very relax, we had a meeting in the morning which kept me busy and we always have Friday afternoons off. It was great because it gave me time to rest… yea rest… that’s what I wish I did. Instead I worked on the jigsaw puzzle I started a while back while listening to an educational youtube series. 

Commercial break-
Catholicism – The Truths of Our Faith. What does the Catholic Faith Really Teach?

I really enjoyed this talk and I think I will use this to start a faith study in the community I’m in right now. I know this deacon and have journeyed a bit with him. He has helped me grow in my faith and understanding of the church.

End of commercial break-

While going through this series I noticed eh I don’t have any goggles and I have time to go look for some at that store. I should also get a swim cap because my hair is getting dry. Huh I think I should come back to this series and actually do something for my health. 

We have to take care of our spiritual health but also our physical health. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. I have to stay as healthy as I can so that God can keep working through me. I really enjoy swimming and try to go 5 to 6 times a week. While swimming I have a lot of time to think about my life (especially now that I have goggles).

Goggles in this situation remind me of prayer. I swam a few months without goggles because of lack of time to go buy a pair. Swimming without goggles isn’t hard because you can’t see but it’s harder because you concentrate on what you can’t see. When wearing goggles your strokes naturally get better and you go faster because you don’t have to concentrate on your lack of sight.

Same with prayer, when one lives without praying they can still live a healthy life but it could be better. When one prays they add something to their life, they can see something they couldn’t see before. It’s like wearing spiritual goggles and while wearing them we can work more on our shortcomings and failures.

I don’t know if this makes any sense but it makes sense in my head.

I hope you have a good day!

Back to work I go now.
