To BE or Not to be

IMG_6113Have you ever felt like you were at a stand still?   Have you ever felt a bit lost?  

As each year passes, I feel like the hands of time are slipping by.   I look in the mirror and looking back at me, I see a woman that has changed, and still requires refinement.     I hear a voice that tells me I could do better.    The voice has been with me for most of my life, I am learning to snuff it out.     John 10:10 comes to mind so many times when the voice comes upon me.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.

I am still finding me.    As I sit still, I look at all of the blessings.   Striving to be perfect in all areas is impossible.    But through Him all things are possible.    I cannot carry it all, which is why He is there – to support me through it all.     I am working on me; discovering what drives me, who I want to surround myself with, how I choose to spend my days, and what I choose to focus on.     I have been given so many blessings, and abundance.   I need to press mute on that voice and push forward, and hear the truth, hear the voice of unconditional love.

  • You love with all your heart
  • You are an intelligent woman
  • You give where you can
  • You love your family to the moon and back
  • You genuinely care for all people

Right now I don’t know where I am going; I lack a direction.  In my past it was like I kept striving for achievement and accomplishment in all areas of my life. Now I am at a standstill not knowing where I need to be.   Perhaps where I need to be – is exactly right where I am?

Maybe it’s time to recognize, I don’t need to be in the drivers seat.  Maybe, I just need to BE.

To BE here

To BE still

To BE present

To BE content

To BE fully alive

To Let Go and Trust; and just BE

Dear Lord God,

Help us to trust completely.  Guide us, connect us to You.   Sometimes we get caught up in what’s next instead of being still and enjoying the present.  Help us to BE Lord.   Thank-you for loving us the way you do.  I pray for this in Jesus Name Amen.

May you be blessed my friend,

Vanessa

  1. We all go through these times Vanessa, it is in these moments that we become stronger by holding on to Jesus, learning from His life, surviving through His strength. These are those defining moments that make our future selves come to life. Hold on tight honey…it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!!
