I did this practice yesterday I promise – I was just too tired to write the blog post last night. 😛
So the one thing I noticed throughout this practice is that I’m beginning to have a greater appreciation for down dog! Did you know that it is a resting pose?! When I first started doing yoga, I hated that pose! But now as I’ve been building strength and opening up my should and hip area, I’m beginning to love – and even want to! – come into that pose. Crazy hey? If you’re not there already, I promise in time you’ll get there too. 🙂
As for the mantra, in my mind there was only one word that followed I trust and that word was God. (Haha that just reminded me of John 1:1!)
Throughout the practice, I kept thinking about it and wondered “What else do I trust?”. But I couldn’t think of anything else. Do I trust myself? No, not all the time. Do I trust others? Sometimes, but they have failed me before.
But that’s the amazing thing. God has never failed me and I can trust Him all the time. He is so trust-worthy to the point that I can trust Him with my entire life.
Isn’t it assuring to know that He will always be someone we can count on? He will never let us down? And sometimes when it appears He’s let us down, He’s actually got a wayyy better plan for us!
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” -Proverbs 3:5-6
