Life is busy and for months now, I’ve been telling myself it’ll slow down. But truth is, it only gets rolling quicker. Life is full and brimming with opportunities- the ones I spent years praying for, longing for their vibrant arrival.
Yes! Life is vibrant. And what I realize more than ever: It wont “go back” to the way it was before. My husband confirmed it this weekend, while on a crisp mornings walk.
“This is your life now. The life God was preparing you for. ”
As it sunk in, I recounted the last few years: the grooming, refining and equipping He had done. There was no time like the present, for Him to open the floodgates of opportunity. My time has arrived and I’ve finally stepped across the threshold- more like jumped– two feet first and beaming!
Among these last few months, “busy” has taught me much: what’s truly important, the need to prioritize and how I choose to spend my days. Wait.
Scratch that– celebrate my days!
I’ve learnt how deeply hard work sets my heart on fire- that it does makes a difference and that I CAN. There’s no need to apologize!
“Be you, Bravely!”
I’ve learnt the value of my precious time and how I spend it, dictates my story. I’ve known those that impact me- that lift me up and embrace the journey with me. I’ve learnt to guard my heart and more importantly, my mind; taking note of those that inspire me and encourage me to do more. be more. live more.
I’ve learnt the need for “quiet living”– moments spent cuddling, walking the dogs or reading. Because in these moments I reconnect with my soul, my passion and my purpose.
I’ve known the need to pray without ceasing and how easily we get distracted – from the life that really matters. Do JUST that and forget all the rest!! Because saying no to somethings, means saying yes to SO much more…. To the stuff that really counts.
But most of all, I’ve learnt I’m blessed- immeasurably– so that I can be a blessing to others.
So here to life now: vibrant and beautifully busy.
