When you are asked to step up to the plate, this is an expression that relates to a game you are well familiar with. In baseball, the batter steps up to take a swing. Yes, all eyes are on him, but he has a whole team behind him. And so it is in your earthly endeavors. You are often put on the spot. You wonder if you are up to the challenge. You will take a swing. Perhaps you will miss, perhaps you will hit a home run. Is there not a bit of excitement in the unknowing? But your intention is clear, and this is how you move forward, come what may. Know that you have a team of unseen helpers around you at all times when you step up to the plate each moment of your life. There are no winners and losers in this experience, only opportunities to play.
You are so very loved.
