Take a Breather!
Often times I find myself rushing!
Rushing to get to the end! Feeling anxious, or overthinking. So much so, that I forget to stop and enjoy myself.
In today's busy world, you have to fight through traffic, you have instafame, instant microwave success, and in my opinion, it's easy to become caught in the "I just want to get there." I noticed that I didn't take the time to enjoy every single part of my life, entirely! As believers, if you believe in Jesus Christ, your seat is secured in heaven, and that's promised to you. My point is one doesn't have to wait to get there to enjoy life.
I'm such a worrier!! I worry about every little thing. I worry about my career, feelings about being and becoming off track, failing, my relationship with God, being the women that God has called me to be and getting there! What I feel like I've been unable to realize is that every obstacle has a process and a purpose. Every intricate detail of your life serves for a higher purpose. While I sit and spin in thoughts of heartbreak, financial mishaps, things not going my way (spoiled girl), loss of a job, relationship, not being employed, friends walking away and stabbing you in the back. All of this happens, it's life!! I was spoiled enough to think that bad things only happen to me and no one else understands, but the reality of it is, is that God uses "Life" as your training ground.
Whatever you have gone through, been through, and or are currently going through you're only passing through. While you're passing through you might as well, enjoy life, take risks, and learn all you can from going through the situation. The bible states that by worrying it cannot make your situation any better, and also says, that he has already set your days out for you. I'm learning to enjoy every intricate detail, an aspect of my life. I try my hardest to forgive often, laugh, and breath, because it really will all be okay and work together for your good in the end!
Which brings me to another thought about enjoying life. If you have found healthy love, enjoy it, bathe in it, and feel it! Love is a gift, and not everyone is fortunate enough to recognize what it is and have it!
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
