Be Still My Soul.
That’s how I have felt lately.
I know like, a million people who are either out of the country now, or preparing to leave the country. I am so excited for them all, but it makes me antsy.
God did not create me to live in one place for long periods of time. I am a wanderer. I am restless. The problem with wanderers is, we are so busy looking to the next thing that we forget to relish the now.
Right now: I have time. For the next month I will have time to finish decorating my house, purge the excess in my life, have a long, beautiful quiet time every single day, discover new music, spend quality time with the people in my life, read a book.
I have not done any of that, because I am so busy thinking about what’s next.
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry,whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Lord, teach me the secret of being content in this exact moment in life.
*Sidenote before I say goodbye, I know this post was supposed to be a picture of how I displayed our house rules but I have not finished them yet.*
