moving toward simplicity of surroundings ...content without a lot of possessions to distract me. That is what I am being pulled towards. What about you?
cleaning out my life...opening my heart to change.
exchanging feeling progressively more alive for progressively more dead. Because if I tell the truth that is where I'm heading. Death of Life...of living. I have, as far back as I can remember, been miserable with what I am doing. Always having this dream but no time or not making any time for things that I have passion for. It is called life. It happens. You get married have children and wake up decades later only to find that life has happened but life has not been lived.
Sometimes, we cannot change our circumstances but we CAN add things into our live that bring us joy. That is within our power.
I can no longer sit back and watch my life fade into eternity and not give the dreams He placed within me the opportunity to develop.
I can sense all the heart opening..I can see it all blurry out in front of me. Anticipation dancing all around. I just don't know what it will look like. Faith is believing without seeing right? so I whisper ... Father help my unbelief..I pray for Giant Faith.
I have read " only put into your life those things you cannot possibly live without " I have been thinking lots about these words...lately.
What makes you burn to live? if you could do one thing ... anything... what would it be? If you can't do that now -what is one thing you could add into your life that would make that dream one step closer to being reality? That one real piece of joy that you could put on everyday?
Maybe it would be taking a class, volunteering at a homeless shelter or your child's school, striking up a conversation with that person that has been on your heart for a year, baking cookies and taking them to people, learning to paint or photography, a writing class;) swimming, starting your own business, going to counseling for yourself this time, making a new friend, start gardening, singing, a dance class maybe?
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
it is in the exchanging.
