Working on finishing touches to this month's #motivationmail and loving these lines from Wordsworth. It reminds me of Matthew 6, when Jesus uses the example of the beautiful lilies of the field, who do not worry about how they grow or what they look like, but in being what they were made to be-- glorious examples of God's splendor-- they are just that: what they're made to be: FREE. And that freedom is BOLD, because it is innately true to itself. Worry doesn't exist in the free nature of the lily or Meadow-flower, because it's wholly consumed in being what it is made to be. What would I be like if I gave up the worries that fill so much of my day, the insecurities and failures and flaws I see stare me in the mirror, and was who I was made to be? Bold, I think, is what I would be. Bold is what I want to be. Unfair as to speak truth, to give lavishly, to love wrecklessly,to live honestly. That's who we were created to be: BOLD and FREE.
