A lot has gone in here in my little world these past couple of weeks, things I won't go into here. They're things that have got me thinking.
There have been friendship struggles, family struggles, guilt struggles, confusion struggles, financial struggles and questions. All these things have stretched me and I've had to give myself lots of time, for journaling and digging deep into His word, and thinking.
I'm a firm believer in our lives having seasons. Not just seasonal seasons, but life seasons. And this, for me, is a season for thinking.
I know God is shaping me. He is doing some things within me at the moment, and I'm surrendering to it. I'm listening. I know I'm growing through all this thinking!
It's a good thing. My vision has been fuzzy, but it seems to be getting a little clearer. My priorities have been sharpened. My sense of self becoming more distinct. And this makes me happy. I know I have a lot to learn. And learning to relax, and trust, and live for my God and my family first have been some of my initial lessons.
This, simply, is my season for thinking.
