I love to read about the journey each person is on. It can be inspiring or depressing. But when you read someone’s story you’re bound to feel some kind of emotion. I took my oldest daughter with me to see ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’. I’m pretty sure the journey that film took me on caused me to feel every emotion one could ever feel.
In doing so, I felt alive.
Life can be like a roller coaster. Sometimes it’s a slow chugging incline and other times it’s a fast drop down.
Fear, nausea, excitement, and relief when it’s all over.
Isn’t that what it’s like?
All the ups and downs of life takes us in all kinds of directions.
Sometimes I feel like I’m in a funk under a grey cloud and not able to break free.
At times I pray,
“God, What is wrong with me?!?”
He ever so gently whispers back,
“Surround yourself with uplifting people.”
So I began to think about my daily interaction with people, both online and in person.
I love the variety of colors in the Christian spectrum, but doom and gloom just doesn’t produce fruit in me.
So I began finding pages of inspiring people and liked them so their bright thoughts typed out in the status box would show in my news feed.
I’ve been through the stages of house cleaning, creating routines, and organizing my home.
I want something more. Something I can grab a hold of….
…and I unliked some pages.
I had to. I need to take time to feed my soul and my mind with whatsoever words are kind, pure, loving, joyful.
You get the picture.
I can’t take another word of condemnation, the words of death that tell me how unworthy I am to even be alive.
I know my worth in Christ and that’s who I want to keep my eyes on.
I’m alive in Him and He’s alive in me and in him there is no death, only life.
