I read this inspiring, thought provoking post this week over at INCOURAGE! It was a post that I could so relate to in this season of life. JUST BREATHE! That is where I am living...a "just breathe" mode. This post may not make much sense if you haven't read the article. Be sure to stop by INCOURAGE and read...soon!
THE MIND! I think we all battle the "dungeon of the mind" I also think what I battle with the most is feeling disconnected from who I am.... how did I get here, who am I and how did I get here so fast. I don't even recognize me sometimes. (like she described in JUST BREATHE) Alot of it is normal life changes, getting older and things so different from what I used to call normal- a child in college (I don't really "mother" tim) I'm not an elementary teacher after 16 years of teaching, I'm not a pastor's wife, after 20 years of ministry, I have no church family and in a few weeks, we won't even have a home!! Who am I?
BUT it in an odd way, some things feel right..Tim is supposed to grow up, I was done teaching and I love my new job, we knew we were done at our previous church and we WILL have a home.
I want to end with..I do have that deep ABIDING peace, I do have deep ABIDING joy, don't lose too much sleep at night and look forward to a new day! We are literally resting in the palm of His hand right now! JUST BREATHING!!
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. Isaiah 30:18-19
