I am...

...Wanting to be swept away from reality, wholly and completely for just a moment and feel the embrace of a God so big and so strong, yet so gentle and sweet.

...Wishing I was more apt to believe what I can't see rather than always having to figure things out on my own. It seems as though this is crippling to me. My soul must rest at ease when faced with the mystery of the unknown.

...Hoping that in the meantime I fall hopelessly and wrecklessly in love with my sweet Savior whom I seem to neglect all to often as the worries and concerns of everyday life and routine steal my attention. I need not be so fixated on how I will get where I am going or what my exact destination is. This is a journey and it is to be beautiful and exciting, with winds, bends and bumps to keep me on edge and experience the thrill of every aspect.

...Contemplating the vast beauty around me in every shape and form. The sunrise each and every morning I wake up to, the beautiful emerald ocean and white sand that is just minutes from my house and the beautiful blue sky that envelopes me every day. People, whether it be my precious family or dear friends, people I come in contact with at work or people I see in passing. May I notice the beauty radiating from each and every person, place or object I am confronted with. On that note, I have met some really beautiful people lately. I love it when people's inner beauty matches or exceeds their outer beauty, it is SO refreshing. It seems as though God has put many of these in my path and I am in absolute awe of how many sweet people I know.

...Learning to rest in my weariness and cast my burdens at His feet. I am not meant to bear each and every load alone and he is just waiting for me to unload on him and fall back into his arms limply surrendering. I'm loosening my grasp...

I am alive.

I am loved.

I am so blessed.

And I am His.

Your words continue to touch me. I am consistently inspired by you and your dedication to your faith and your desire to be connected to both faith and God. I am not a traditionally religious person, however your words always touch me - which I think is a testament to the fact that you speak very authentically and that makes even a hardened old non-organized religious goat like me pause a moment and think. Have a wonderful weekend sweet friend, I hope you find what you are looking for and life gives you many blessings. You certainly do bless everyone around you.
