My life currently feels like I have been living in a shaker of sand and it has all been turned upside down.
Emotionally things are tenuous as I have always been prone to exaggeration and extreme emotions, just ask Sexy Neck. The greatest thing about your Expectations being spilled out all over the earth you get to see what and who matters in life.
I am blessed with a few supportive and minimally judgmental parents and friends.
I am also blessed with good books to spur me on. The first and foremost for me is the bible, checkout Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Did you notice that word ‘enough’?
The other two books that are encouraging me right now are “Daring Greatly” and a book by John Bevere. You will have go google the title because I think it is a horrible title and doesn’t justify this great book about offense.
Here is what a read today from page 82.
“God showed my wife, Lisa, five purposes for shaking an object:
1. To bring it closer to it’s foundation.
2. To remove what is dead.
3. To harvest what is ripe.
4. To awaken.
5. To unify or mix together so it can no longer be separated.”
I found these 5 purposes oddly encouraging as I thought about my life and watched my sons playing on the rocks.
(Picture to come!)
Lord, my life feels like I am crawling along the rocks, but I know that You are my rock.
