Life, the process…

img_2628Life… A journey… A process… A continual climbing of mountains and walks through valleys, with a lot of highs and lows…

I believe every person on earth experiences it… This thing called life…

And while some are flourishing and truly thriving, others are languishing and searching for significance…

I also believe it’s possible to thrive in several areas, but then completely coast through and feel lost and confused in others…

For me, well it’s a moment-by-moment choice… And some moments feel longer and more confusing than others…

And with the cultivation of life, I also believe a change in seasons happens a lot… And some of those seasons can seem so long and boring… And their length requires patience…

Patience of the soul… Because our minds, emotions and the human will want to control it all… They want to move forward with the way the rest of the world is moving…

And in an age of instant gratification… Well, sometimes it’s truly easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle… To feel like we have to move from one thing to another, without slowing down to rest…

In this season of life, I’ve learned that rest is so important…

Because for me, well rest can often times feel uncomfortable… I like to be around people… I like to be doing a million things at once… I left an environment full of constant, quick motion… Always running and running…

And so slowing down, well it’s been a bit of a challenge for me…

It’s been a challenge to take every day as it’s given, and trust that God is going to reveal everything I need in that day, for that day… And that I’m going to grow accordingly…

And honestly… Honestly, I have no idea how long this season is going to last… But in the midst of it all my heart has changed so very much…

Because the ups and downs of the mountain I am on have allowed me to see life in a way I’ve never seen it before… I feel like a different person… I closer version of myself than I’ve ever been before… Truly, more authentic to the way I was actually created to be…

And, so… Though I have no idea how much longer this will all last, I am confident that the change inside of me is real, genuine and true… And because of that, well I’ll just keep firm to the process…
