Or heck if no one is reading this then……hey mom! :)
I took a few weeks off from this post because I wanted it to be very real. I don’t ever want to do something that was meant to better myself to turn into a chore. With that said I have a little extra recapping to do.
Looking back on the last month the one thing that stands out to me are the lessons learned on the subject of “letting go.” This applies to so many areas of my life. I have been really focused on letting go of the idea of where I think I should be in life by this age. I am learning that I am exactly where I need to be which is humbled before God in all areas right now. There is always more to do, more to gain, more growth, more money, more relationships, more kids (well I need a husband first.) When we finally get “more” it is never enough. It is never fully satisfying. It never lives up to the expectations we have. The hardest part is letting go while maintaining healthy goals and desires. It is also not good to have zero goals or desires. They were placed within us for a reason. It is when those goals and desires become our everything that we are ultimately let down. That is my two cents but I am sure it is up for debate. FYI the book that has pushed my mind in this direction is a book called Empty Promises by my preacher Pete Wilson. It’s worth the effort to purchase and read it.
Highlights of the past week (well month):

My meditation for the week:
Freedom in understanding your worth doesn’t come from your performance or others evaluation of your performance. - Pete
Concentrate on trusting Me and on doing what needs to be done. Relax in My sovereignty, remembering that I go before you, as well as with you, into each day. Fear no evil, for I can bring good out of every situation you will ever encounter - Jesus Calling
