I feel like I’m walking forward through a field with my arms cascading down the side of my body and my palms facing to the front. I feel the thigh high grass funneling through the space between my fingers.

Introspective.

This is how I travel my mind’s topography.

Deeper in, there is a walled city with 4 gates (each one respectively facing North, East, West and South). What that city produces define what I do with my life.

It’s the reason I’m patrolling these fields in the outskirts of the city. I find extreme purpose in protecting the way to the city from things that mean to control and bring hurt.

Lately, I feel like I’m being watched. I was patrolling around some hidden pathways when I’m sure that something was looking at me from the bushes. I’m not afraid of what’s there because I’m well equipped to deal with whatever it may be. But it’s HOW it’s following me that has me concerned!

Sometimes I can sense that it’s right up and close yet it doesn’t reveal itself or do anything and other times I can hear it running hard ahead of me like it is trying to set a trap for me. This is why I’m always watchful of my steps and surroundings. I must say that I’m a bit paranoid over this thing and I have to admit though, my senses are heightened because of it which is a good thing for my assigned duty.

I’ve been asking my friends/fellow patrol guys if they have been noticing anything. They say no but that they sense something in the air.

I traveled to the city gates to speak with the wise man there about what has been happening out in the outskirts.

He smirked and mumbled, “That’s them aright.”

I immediately leaned forward, “Them who!?”

He squinted his eyes scanning the horizon towards my patrolling ground while slowly nodding his head saying, “Goodness and Mercy hunts you.”

“?”

“They hunt for ways to show kindness to you and deliver you from our enemies. And let me tell you, they finish what they start!”

“So you trying to tell me that my blessing has me paranoid?!”

Don’t overthink the situations you find yourself facing. Trust that you’re being hunted. #PushForward #Psalms23:6

  1. Walking with you on your journey of “Goodness & Mercy” is impacting. May they overtake you and may all who read this introspective find and embrace these gifts of a Great God who cares for all. Keep watching; keep patrolling; the steps of a good man are ordered/directed/guided by the LORD.

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
