What do you do when you feel everything is happening all at once? “Everything” can consist of SO MANY THINGS- excitement, frustration, grieving, contentment. It can leave us feeling as though we have nothing left.
Hello, friend. :)
It has been WAY too long. I can't tell you how many times I have started to write, all failing to find the words I want to say. I wanted to write something with meaning. Something that would help change YOUR life. Instead, God has been writing my story in ways I would never have dreamed. In the past months, I have seen a large change in my life.
God hears you.
He hears your cries. He sees your tears. Nothing will ever happen that will cause Him to be confused or surprised. He knows everything- past, present, and future.
“Will it get any easier the older I get? Will my responsibilities ever cease spinning around my head? Can I just pause and catch my breath?” School is starting. Work continues. The days become busier and the schedules get tighter. It feels as though I am trapped in a whirlwind of chaos. Everyday there is something unexpected I need to do. Somewhere else I need to go. I enjoy it! But sometimes- okay, okay, a lot of the time- it is overwhelming!!
It wasn't until this year, or really this past month, that I really found my "quiet place."
I wanted somewhere that I could go and be alone with God. I grab my Bible, a small notebook, and my favorite writing utensil, then hop on my bike and ride to the quiet and peaceful scenery of the woods. I spend as much time there as I can with the Lord. I do not always have time to stay for an hour; I always seem to be wishing for more time with God.. Isn't that the way it should be?
God has given me a love for people and a passion to write. I love that the sky shows the creativity of our loving Maker, don't you? I hope you will join me on this journey through life exploring the beautiful creation God has made and the lessons that He is teaching me through it all.
