Sure, I can go through my list of what has NOT been working (speaking rashly, going to bed way too late turned not getting up early to go running, getting places on time, being on the computer too much, and the list goes on), but where does that get me? Usually…discouraged, frustrated, trying to do it myself. Not a good place.
So, in the midst of my crying out, God gave me a little reminder tucked away in my journal written in orange highlighter:
And that,right there, is where I’m choosing to turn my focus today.
What’s working: journaling, days at work, seeing joy in the little things, adventures
From here, I’m going to keep finding out what’s working, do some more of that, fill in the gaps where I can, and mostly lean on Him to give me the strength because He sure does tell me that I can do nothing without Him.
And while I’m at it since I’m a words girl…I’ll keep singing:
“Cause even in the dark you can still see the light”
“I don’t want to go one more day without your all consuming passion inside of me. Just okay is not enough.”
“It’s joy unspeakable”
“Hey now, this is my desire, consume me like a fire cause I just want something beautiful to touch me.”
So, how are you doing today? What’s working for you? What are you listening to?

hmmm. what’s working in my life? …. today is much different than yesterday. Isn’t that how it often goes. . .
One day I can just rest and find peace, another day I find myself running so hard I have no place to turn but into His loving arms.
There are times when I wish it were consistent, that I would always know what to do but then I realize, if that were the case I would get bored and drift somewhere else. Nope, He keeps me interested, challenged, and madly in love. It is only Him that I cannot live without!
love it…it really is just as simple as an answer as HIM. and I agree if things were always the same…I would get bored!
