Oh, the randomness...

Just my thoughts on life, love, and the pursuit of Jesus.

Life is hard. It's so true, isn't it? It seems like one area or another is always out of sync. Tough decisions to make, loved ones to let go of, new ones waiting to be discovered, things to forgive, things to let go of and move on, things to accept, things to apologize for, people to meet, people to care for, details to get handled, phone calls to return, the list goes on...

I decided to give up stress for Lent. Is that even a valid choice? I mean this though - some stress is healthy, but certain levels are bad. And when we let circumstances affect our attitudes and our outlooks and our work ethic....that is when stress is bad and gets in the way.

So, I'm letting go.

I'm still making the tough decisions, having the financial curve balls thrown my way, and working through some emotional boundaries...but I'm choosing to not let it affect my attitude or my outlook on life.

Christe eleison.

Isn't it amazing what happens when egos get in the way? I have been forced in the past week to deal with this alot - and I don't mean just the other people's egos. I have been confronted with my own.

Personally, 'grateful is the heart that is humbled' is my mantra these past few weeks. And it's true - I would rather be humbled and thus be closer to God, than to have him allow me to stay in my pride but fall farther away from his heart...

This journey can be lonely. It can be painful. It's not easy.

But, if we're journeying ever-closer to God's heart, it's all worth it. For in his heart we find love, grace, mercy, truth, and wholeness.
