There is something in the air, or in the way I see things that has made my everyday different. If you follow my blogs or know me you might have seen my physical change, but there is something in my heart that feels different. I feel like all this time I have been color blind and for the first time I can see reds, and blues. I am 100 percent sure that the sun is shining brighter and I am in awe. I feel like I am looking at my life from the outside in and wondering, “is this real?” Even after I spilled my coffee that I desperately needed all over my desk I noticed my reaction was very different…It actually kind of scared me.
I look in the mirror and for the first time I see who I am becoming and the woman I was called and destined to be. Yes, I ‘ve made some MAJOR life changes and that has helped propel me to where I am currently standing, but for the first time I feel peace in a way I can’t explain. There is a grace I am walking in that I have never realized was there, and a favor that I had forgotten.
So this morning as I read my Bible I began to meditate on this feeling I feel and tried to pinpoint the cause…but I realized it’s not one thing, its a conglomeration of things and steps I have taken…It’s just like Pastor Stovall says, “It’s how you respond in the ordinary that sets you up for the extraordinary.” I just want to encourage anyone who is walking in a trying season. God is faithful, and wants to lift you out of whatever pit you might find yourself in today…I don’t have a mathematical equation or any secrets to getting to the season that I am currently experiencing except the thing that has revolutionized my world…so i’ll pass it on to you.
Live for God in total surrender. Serve without asking for recognition, and Love without expecting love in return.
It’s all about how we react in our everyday, and how you love people in the midst of it. My hope is that I can continue to move forward chasing the goal that is Christ. My prayer is that my life will be lived in such a way that it can be poured out like an offering and those I meet and encounter will feel the love of God…Will I fail at this? Probably. But I will still try because my life is not my own, and I am surrendered in this season.
I am ready now..
