Have you ever felt like you can’t catch your breath? That the world is spinning so fast and everything around you is going 100 miles/hour? You feel like you’re sprinting but you can’t seem to catch up with anyone or anything. Right? Bigger houses, newer clothes, more money, fancier cars, the list goes on and on. The world is constantly telling us we need these things and in order to do this we work more (sometimes at a job we hate), to buy these things we don’t need, to fill a void in us that it will never fill. And the endless spiral of emptiness continues. We can never quite catch up to where we think we should be. Why? Because we are feeding ourselves with the wrong things! Have we stopped to breathe? Breathe in the Holy Spirit, soak in the words of Abba, and just Be Still in the midst of Him?
For the past few months I have been beating myself up about how I haven’t blogged in the longest time. How I need to be doing more to feel worthy. If I give myself a second to take a step back and breathe I realize I already am worthy! He has a gift for us friends; you need only accept it! It’s FREE and you become FREE when you accept it. So instead of filling the internet with mindless, empty blogs that I would write just to fill the time and feel more worthy, I’m going to take a step back. I’m going to breathe in a world that doesn’t have time to breathe. I’m going to fill myself up and soak Him in. I have so many ideas and thoughts I’d like to write about but I feel the only way to bring my best writing to the table is to first spend, not just some, but A LOT of alone time with Him and to remind myself that in Him I am enough.
