It’s the best time to wear a striped sweater, sweater. Welcome to my first blog, first blog. Ever 🙂
Hey guys! I was just thinking, while eating my punkin’ pecan ice cream, that holy cow Christmas is in three weeks. THREE WEEKS. I have, like, SO MUCH to do. I have projects to complete and speeches to write and Taylor Swift’s new album just came out so there’s that, and ministries to give my heart and time to, and of course I have to work too, and I need a new laptop, and probably a new car! It’s kind of crazy. But you know, with all that stuff on my mind, I just want to snuggle up with my sister and listen to music and watch comforting romantic movies and laugh at stupid things. But let me tell you a little something about life, it demands to be lived! I was at work today, I’m a nanny for five kids so I do laundry A LOT, and I was putting clothes away inside the master closet where I was literally brought to my knees. This has been happening a lot lately) (I don’t know, maybe it’s a wardrobe to Narnia) (Narnia as in heaven?) Okay, so I was brought to my knees because so often I show up to work already exhausted and I forget who my God is. I’ll show up to work without a prayer behind me, without even a thought towards Him, and you just can’t live like that. And as soon as I so much as speak His name, I’m on my knees because everything makes sense in His name. All of the stress, all of the confusion, all of the heaviness of my heart and weight of my life and the world, all of it becomes sweet with God. No, it doesn’t disappear. I still have a lot of stuff to take care of (like the socks that are still in my hand), and I’m still confused about a few things, (like why is there literally no match to this stupid blue sock) but I have a greater purpose than this life. I have a greater purpose than myself, and that is Love. This Love is so big, and so understanding, and so deep, that nothing in this world can come in between it and me. It’s CRAZY. And it demands to be received, and it demands to be released! We just can’t keep it inside ourselves, it rots in there! And with all that love inside me, the rest of the day is a slime trail of love that keeps overflowing out of this cup God gave me. I have a purpose, a purpose that fits in with everything I do, and so.do.YOU. We are all given this love, and a cup, and a slime trail, and we were all given this gift of life. So I encourage you, friends, to pray. Often. And be comforted in the fact that sometimes prayer is you listening, and sometimes it’s God listening, and sometimes it’s both of you listening at the same time. Prayer, in its way, is you centering your life on God, it’s you refocusing. So pray pray pray, and take heart in your purpose, and know you are so so loved. Praying for you 🙂
