can i just say one thing that's been bugging me..well about ME
is my list lately of the you know to do list..life list, living, dreaming list
has gotten quite large and with no action behind it
..do you do this?? have you done this?
I'm a huge list person and the life bumps that come along the way either by sickness(kids in my case) or obligations or just plain old being tired and not motivated to live life to the fullest can create HUGE detours from my list!
Which by the way i don't mean that you have to be doing SOMETHING all the time!!
Being present and enjoying all the blessings God has given me is what i so desire. I want my story, my life to be a blessing to others around me
I don't want to compare my life to others and fit life into other peoples box of what it means to live life..but i do sometimes and in the past was a bigger problem for me..
God has been dealing with me on this A LOT over the last couple of years
its not a constant thing but a thing nonetheless that pokes its ugly head into my thoughts when i start doubt what Gods doing in my life or hear and see how much others are able to do..
LIFE is so dear
and i don't want to waste my time comparing
i want to spend my time well
its the most precious thing we have this thing called TIME
whats right for one person in life may not be the best fit for who i am and my family and really i have to make peace with that*really**
Wherever God is taking you in your life its for YOU! you can't follow other peoples road to success or their journey in life because its theirs to take not yours
and if we compare our lives and gifts with
i think we miss out on our very own precious journey to finding out who we are in Christ
living with a thankful heart and loving who you are starts with being content
learning, observing and taking bits of truths from others story and experiences,
leaving behind what doesn't work or apply to me has been a new process in my thinking
and its been FREEING!!!
My LIFE is so dear God says
and so is YOURS!!
So live it
