As I look at this picture, I think of the chair, how almost raggedy, unbecoming and out of place it looks, compared to me and my attire. My smile is radiant, I am sitting upright; confident, my hair is well done, my dress hugs me well and shimmers for the season and my shoes and accessories compliment. I think to myself, why didn’t I find a better chair to sit in?
Currently in one of my stand still moments and God is reminding me of how much I’ve accomplished, how many things I’ve ticked off the list of things to do…. and that it’s time for me to just be in His presence.
Have you ever had a time in life where you felt you were not moving at the speed you intended?…..Remember, in your stand still moments God is remolding you. He is removing all the worn out edges and replacing them with new… He is refilling your fuel, that you have so willingly given out. He is forcing you to take time to seek Him, to spend time with Him away from all your busyness.
If I could speak to the younger me, I would tell her to make sure every choice she makes is one that she wants to make, one that makes her happy. To consider others but not to the point where all the choices she makes in life are wrapped up in what others think and need. To enjoy her youth, to be easy on herself, to allow herself room to make mistakes and live. Live life freely. To breathe. Breathe in and out, breathe and live in every moment and not think so much about what has passed and what is to come. To relax, chill out and know it will all work out.
