life beyond the well…

This Space

1 Comment

It happens every year.  Sometimes it happens more than once a year.  But usually around this time of year, life really starts to pick up and I’m forced to pick and choose where my focus will be.  I usually find myself in a space where I’m relying more and more on Starbucks and less on God’s sustaining power.  And when that happens, it means that it’s time to refocus, prioritize, and get back in the saddle.

A lot has happened over the past month since I’ve written here.  We are gaining momentum in the church planting process (more on that to come), and I’ve hit a really good stride with my work; along with having some pretty major accomplishments. Life is busy, but life is good.  Really good.

I wish that I could adequately express in this space how blessed I feel. I serve a risen Savior. I have been blessed with the most amazing husband who truly loves the Lord, loves me, and pursues the Lord’s calling on his life daily. I get to be a step-mother to the most amazing five-year-old on the planet. I have a job. I have a job that I love. I have family and friends across the country who love me and are praying for me, and always send those reminders at the best time. I have a place to go home to each evening. I don’t worry about IF I will eat, I worry about WHAT I will eat. And that’s just the icing on the cake.

I’m grateful for my portion.  While it may push me away from this space for a while, I have been tremendously blessed.

Your life may be busy and may seem overwhelming so much so that it pushes you from those things that you love.  Be encouraged. Look for the joy in your portion, and trust God.

Be encouraged! Peace and blessings!

God-chaser. NC native, now planted in Jacksonville, FL. Happily married to a handsome church-planting pastor. I am easily excited by Jesus, education, cupcakes, Moleskine notebooks, and Pepsi. Overwhelmed by God's amazing grace, undeserving of His love and mercy.
