Water break.



2013 arrived and I felt like we hit the pavement running. This is going to be a big year for our family in so many ways and I already find myself with my jaw to the ground amazed at all that has already been done. I have to remind myself daily that this isn't a marathon and not everything is going to happen at once, I need to slow it down a little and enjoy each mark and not try to race to the finish line. 
I can't wait to share all that is going on and the incredible work that the Lord has already done and is doing. That time will come but right now we really feel like we're supposed to be still and content with where we are at in all aspects of our life and as we continue to wait on the Lord and following His leading we will get to where we're supposed to be in His perfect timing! 

I've had days recently where I feel like my head is spinning. There is so much going on, so much we want to do, decisions that need to be made, life changes big and small and you know what I'm learning? To not worry about it. A lot easier said that done. But seriously, I am OCD when it comes to organization and planning and schedules so when we're looking at {big} life changes I find myself trying to plan out every detail and work out every kink on my own. And surprise surprise, it doesn't work! I found out the hard way. 

The best feeling is what we're experiencing now, freedom!! I am no longer carrying around the worries of how everything is going to work out, I am no longer trying to figure out every detail because I sure as heck can't plan life. I have let go and am letting God take control. We are waiting on Him and His timing because.. pssst. let me let you in on a sweet secret...it's PERFECT. Do you know how refreshing it is to go to bed each night without the burden of worrying about life? And to wake up each morning knowing that the One who created this universe and little you and little me is in control of every detail of what is going to happen that day. That's where we're at and it is so freeing! Arms open wide ready to receive all that He has for us and following as He leads. 

Do you feel like you're running a marathon right now and you thought you signed up for a little 5K walk/run? 
Take a water break, slow it down and just breathe. 

One day at a time, we'll get there and when we do that finish line is going to feel so so good.
