Do you ever find yourself longing for more? Yearning for more? Not even sure what "more" is in your life but you are certain you need it?
I do and it's an icky place to be stuck in. It takes your energy. It takes your time. It takes your happiness. It takes your joy. It leaves your heart feeling worthless. It leaves you feeling sad...abandoned...lost... simply not yourself.
How can we remedy this?
We need to cause pause in our lives. We need to intentionally stop. We need to breathe. We need to take a break. We need to make that attitude of gratitude flow through us rather than just thinking being thankful is another thing on our to do list.
Today, I feel in a heap. I have some big goals that I have put out there for people to know and frankly, in my humanness, I am falling short. I'm not ok with falling short. But God is knocking at my heart to be still in His promise of abundance. Ok, he's been screaming it at me for months... and after over a week of that no energy, feeling down and out about it all, today I was intentional to cause pause in my life.
And guess what...my picture slideshow started playing on my computer's screen. All the photos of my children, my husband, our friends, our family came pouring across. All the moments that I have been able to experience because I get to live this amazing life. All the people we have met and the friendships we have made across the globe because of an abundance. Tears filled my eyes and gratitude filled my heart.
Even if this month ends short, I will not long for what I do not have. God has blessed me over and over again in this life.
