What I have learned over the past few days of not blogging is that. 1 I enjoy the schedule of blogging and working out. 2 I don’t like not doing it. 3 God has shown me each day that he is here for me and that he is in control of my life. So much Grace and love poured over me, I am truly blessed. Having faith and having that faith tested, trusting in God, and letting go of those things that we feel the need to hold onto so strongly giving them to God and letting Him take control of our prized possessions is on of the hardest things to do. But the reward of watching God be in control and take the reins is one of the most humbling experiences. Taking a few days off to self reflect I believe is part of the process of growing and learning. Spending time with God and being silent in your mind, even though when you are trying to do that it seems like there is a full blown circus going on, is beautiful and deeply rewarding. Finding true peace and resting in God is something I am still not the best at. But I try my hardest all the time to rest in Him and let go of all the worries. It is a daily…no hourly…struggle to keep focused on resting in Him, and not taking it all back.
In another note, Winter has not been the winter of snow that I was hoping for. I love the snow and have to admit that I love building snow men 🙂 But I guess winter is what it is this year.
My Goal: Finish all my tiny projects and errands so my plate is clear.
Positive Phrase: You are in good hands, stay focused, love those around you and lift your hands up.
