You know those moments where we have fallen out of rhythm? ... We haven't served well and we have been selfish. We Netflix binged, we work too much, we nap too long, we focused too much on our friends, we spent too much time alone, we skipped church, we made that one mistake that we said we would never make again ... we have lost our way.
I hear it all the time:
"I've just been really far from God lately."
So here are the steps to feeling better about yourself and where you stand with God:
1. Actually believe that God has, is, and always will be closer than your own breath.
That's all. Act out of that place.
This month for me has been a whirlwind. I have witnessed in myself a desire to do more and be enough. I have shamed myself for the time I spend doing meaningless things, my forgetfulness, I have questioned my purpose daily, and believed the lies in my heart saying "You are a joke. You know it and everyone else knows it."
It's a pretty big lie. It was sprinkled over my friendships, my marriage, my work, my writing, my quiet time. So what was my response? -- " I can do more! I can be more! I will make myself enough. I can make myself lovable ."
Happy stories, sad stories, dramatic, sorrowful, and joyous stories- every story is a love story... and here are some of mine.
