Sunday is probably one of my favorite days during the week. Maybe it's because it's usually the one day that I get to sleep in, but it's also the one day I get to spend at LEAST three hours just pondering. Sometimes I wish I had more time to think. (Here is why) My life is so consumed with other responsibilities and obligations that when the time finally comes for me to breath - I don't want to do anything except sit there. By the time Sunday usually rolls around, my breathing time is complete and I have time to process my week.
Life is lived day by day. Second by Second. You can't count on something that used to be - you have to live for what is to come.
I think sometimes I psych myself out when it comes to the future. I tell myself I'm not prepared, or too young, or inexperienced, blah blah blah. I could come up with a million excuses - but the point is, that's not the point. I am my only obstacle at this point. Sure, stumbling blocks are put in our way, but at the end of the day, I've found that it's purely a mental game that we're playing here.
I got a letter from a friend the other day. He's spent the last 21 months in Los Angeles serving a mission for my church. Here's what he shared with me about this race we're participating in called life:
"He won't make you run faster than you are able, but He will make you run."
So as much as I want to slow down time or quietly push the pause button on my life, I just can't. I learned that in church today. You just have to keep going. Because life is about progression and learning and change. So I guess I better start jogging, eh?
