Where have I been?
School. Now I am not making excuses for myself. I have been busy with life and blogging has not been a priority for me right now. I always seem to add too much at the beginning of the year. School, work, blogging, running, friends, etc. The lists never seem to end. Why do I do this to myself? I feel the need to do everything and then I start to lose energy.
The reason I wanted to blog today was to write about letting things go. I always think of the frozen song “Let It Go” for some reason. (Sorry if that song is now stuck in your head.) For myself, I sometimes think that I let things go but my mind constantly goes back to it. I become frustrated with it swirling around in my head. I guess I still continually have this idealistic view of my life instead of letting it go and understanding that I can’t control what happens, the only thing I can control are my actions towards it. I still get frustrated that I will mess up and make mistakes. But I have to make mistakes! I am human. I am an imperfect human. That statement gives me relief because I know that if I am an imperfect human then I will make mistakes and its still okay. I think we always need a little reminder that we are all imperfect humans but that we can trust God to help us up, to dust us off when we fall down.
I know that in my life, these are the moments that I can say I am growing in my faith. Taking little baby steps because God is the most patient father and He knows each one of us. If you aren’t hearing encouragement/conviction in your life, its not from God. He loves us and always will.
