Breaking the Barrier
1. Wherever you are, be there. (don't miss your life by wishing you were somewhere in the future or the past)
2. What you control you will lose. (don't try to over control or micromanage things in your life that are God's to "run")
3. What you fear is what you attract. (show me your fear and I will show you your barrier) (ex. fear of pain attracts hurts)
4. What you love, you will change for. (so true! nothing to add)
5. Life is better on the other side of the barrier. (push through and don't lose heart)
Time to deal I guess. I know some things I want to see happen that just aren't and I know that the exercise of recognizing fears and letting go of control is not an easy one but if the last principle is true then it will be worth it right?
"From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out."
Today has been heavy for me in a lot of ways. I spent the good part of the bus ride today talking with someone about a lot of things that were funny on the surface (laugh or you'll cry) but things that have shaped me into the person I am...the reason I make choices the way I do and why there are things I want so bad for my life that are different than maybe I should "expect". I want more out of life than I deserve or have been handed. Thank God God's in the business of restoration and life change.
I think I need to go to sleep. My emotions and my state of mind are effected by the tired factor. Tomorrow morning the sun will be shining and I will be too (not 'till after 10 though..hehe)
It was so great to see some of my family today. I took a cute pic of the three of us which I'll post sometime later on.
