My life can get crazy quickly. It is refreshing to sit back and look around at all of the blessings God has given me.
In the midst of alarm clocks, carpool lines, sleep schedules, routines, routines, routines, remember to thank God for all He has done. There is a way to live life that keeps us looking Up instead of around. In order to do that, we must trust that God knows what He is doing and by ourselves, we can’t do much. God’s way is good. It is pleasing. It is perfect. It is seamless. Lean in and trust Him. Life will be less hectic.
Quite honestly, the journey began a long time ago. My first journal, or the oldest one I can find, is dated November 19, 2005. That is more than a lifetime ago for me! Here are some quotes from the very first page…
Do not take advantage of God’s unconditional love.
Stop trying to make sense of others’ thoughts and comments. God’s opinion is the only one that matters.
Be content – stop looking for better and rest in what already is.
And here we are… thirteen years and three months later. I have wandered, discovered, married, carried, and am living a life of contentment… most days. I have resisted this type of communication since its inception. Yet God is calling me to take this on. So I will.
My journey began long ago, but you are picking up with me right where I am now. I look forward to traveling with you. Welcome to A Seamless Life!
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.
