Good, Bad or Indifferent this is who I am and this is my life! Most days I think I am better than bad, less than good but never indifferent about the things that matter in life.
My life is not filled with death-defying feats or exceptional talents. I am simply a regular girl with hopes and dreams of a simple life. A life filled with faith, hope and love!
Yes I get off track and my compass does not always point north. My mind gets cluttered with all of the junk in the world and I struggle with everyday stuff. I am often saddened and confused by life’s tragic events. I want to help but feel helpless.
This blog is about the People, places and things that give me hope and inspire me to be a better me.
Every life is a story and every story has a beginning, a middle and an end. Every story contains context, conflict, decisions and resolution.
Once I realized that my life was a story I began to wonder about things; will I make better decisions, will I worry less and trust God more? I wonder will I be a better listener and a better friend, a better wife and a better mother. Will I share Jesus with others, or will they see Jesus in me?
I wonder if I will laugh more often, love more deeply and will I live life to the fullest? I am wondering about my life story but I am not worrying about it. My life story may not be filled with exciting world travels or death-defying feats. It may be that God has planned for my life story to be one filled with lots of normal everyday stuff.
I know God has written into my life-story that I would be a daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife, a mother, an encourager and a Christ follower. I do wonder what else He has planned for my story. But I am content because I know the beginning and I know the end and I know who wrote the story line that goes in-between and I am thrilled to be part of such an amazing story.
Jeremiah 29:11 “for I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
