- My vision – I have worn glasses or contacts since I was 8 years old and I really don’t remember what it’s like to wake up and not have to put my “eyes” on. I’m aware that there are lots of people out there who can’t just put “eyes” on and see and I’m so thankful that my vision is correctable.
- Leftover lasagna for dinner – I’m taking extra care this week to nourish my body because I have a pattern of neglecting it when it needs it the most.
- Listening to a sermon from the Crossing on my run today entitled How Envy Kills Your Joy - I’m also trying to feed my spirit and immerse myself in the Word.
- Being able to run today even though it was painful, my legs felt like lead and I kept having to stop and walk
- The Ruth bible study which is full of women whom I’ve never met – most are a decade or so older than me and we are all from different walks of life but there is something supremely comforting about women sitting together, talking about Ruth and God and knowing that at that moment, I was exactly where God wanted me to be.
I’m just praying for peace and contentment and God’s grace to wrap around me. The sermon I listened to was really good and it spoke directly to some of the pain that I’ve been feeling. I do covet other’s marriages and families and I long for a husband and children of my own so much that my heart physically aches. And the message I got from this sermon is that I need to be content with the blessings that I do have. I need to stop and look around and feel His love in everything that I do. God’s timing and his plan and his desire for me will unfold as I live and love the life that He has given to me. And this heartwrenching pain and agony that I’m feeling right now is not because of Him or what He wants or doesn’t want for me; He’s feeling it, too and He hurts for me. I just pray to be content with my life and knowing that He is always there to hear my joys and my sorrows and to wrap me in his grace is something that I need to work on. Being worried and concerned with the future and what I may or may not have or do is less about my will and more about my faith.
