I was overjoyed when I put this ensemble together. It is a relatively new skirt that I have been saving to wear because it is white, and you know that rule about not wearing white until spring. Well spring has finally sprung! And I was so happy to finally get to wear this lovely skirt! I scored it at a thrift store while shopping on my trip to Georgia. This outfit was just one of those outfits that you feel so confident in. It felt like a “me” outfit. You know?
Life feels like it has been crazy busy of late. But when is it not? Just a different, new busy. Things are shifting in our family, my life, and my relationships with God and family. Not in a bad way. It is all good. But I can still get overwhelmed by the goodness of it all and feel a bit unready for the future. But maybe that is where faith comes in. When we are unready, overwhelmed and even a bit scared and that strange sad/happy emotion about the future, that is where our faith in God deepens. Our need for Him is stronger because we know we can’t do it on our own and that we need Him. He wants us to need Him. He wants us to crave Him. Which is something I am feeling myself do more.
A bible study that I recently did was such a Godsend and such a blessing. I felt myself digging deep into His word, and searching for the truth. Something I have struggled with doing if I am quite honest. As much as I wanted to read the Word, and as much as I knew it was good for me, I felt distracted, too busy, too anything to do the one thing that I needed most. It is still a struggle sometimes, but I have learned that it is pushing through the struggle that is important. Because, we can’t crave something we don’t taste. Would you ever have a craving for chocolate if you had never tasted it in the first place? Of course not! You would have no basis for your craving. The same applies with the Word. How can we crave something we don’t taste? How can I crave the Word if I don’t read it? Eat it, devour it, taste it? I have discovered that I need to taste it, no matter how busy, how exhausted, or how distracted I may feel. I still need to keep feeding my soul, regardless of the fact that it might not be the easy thing to do. We have always known that the good things worth having in life aren’t always easy. So fight for your time with God! It is worth it. Even if it is hard.
