To The Dreamers: What I am listening to….

This touches the restless, angsty places in my heart as I sit and write my heart out for myself, for others young and old. 

This song quickly is becoming my anthem as I sit and imagine my life a year, two years, 10 years from now.

These words are spilling into my soul as I pray for God to point in the direction he would want me to go.

Maybe you need these words too! A little bit of permission to be a dreamer….right, because dreamers aren’t always seen as the most productive type.

Music has a way of speaking to parts of my heart and mind that otherwise goes untouched.  I love the fact that I can listen to this and  like it is okay to be here at this point in my life right now….dreaming about what is next!

What is your anthem? What song is inspiring you currently?  What are you dreaming about?

Words of Truth

Sometimes I am my own worst enemy.  

Sometimes my thoughts spiral out of control….
….and I end up curled in a ball on my bathroom floor freaking out about life.

Sometimes the lies are so loud that I can’t hear the small quiet truths.

That happened this week.

Maybe I am weird but I worry, I am anxious, I am torn up about the should of, could ofs, didn’ts, and didn’t want tos. 

These thoughts paralyze me.  

So much so that I am sitting in my car breaking down because I don’t know what to do next.

One of the blessings that I have in my life is this person…..

Angie!

She  listens, speaks truth, shoots it straight, doesn’t let me believe the lies, and all the while kicks my butt into shape!

I know that when I see her, she will be in my corner, not to just build my ego or feed into my crap, but she will be in my corner and believe in me when I don’t believe in myself.  I am so much stronger now mentally than I used to be, and I know it, but sometimes I forget.  She reminds me of that.

She reminded me this week that I do not have to be weak anymore, and it has made all the difference.

Sometimes I forget that I am transformed, heart and soul.
(2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. )

It is almost as if, even though I have lost the weight, I am still wearing all my old clothes.  It doesn’t make any sense. 

I am transformed heart, soul, mind and BODY!!  
 I am free to be who I am meant to be.  THAT is the truth I want to listen too!
What are the lies that you are listening too?  Who in your life speaks truth to you and believes in you when you don’t believe in yourself?

weekly

Every Sunday, I spend an hour or two at one of my favorite coffeeshops. It is a little out of my way, but I don’t mind because they have great coffee and great seating. I usually spend this time thinking about what God is teaching me. Sometimes I spend the time reading or just writing out to God. Lately, I feel like I have this on going dialogue with God about what I am supposed to do with my future.

Not that I have major decisions to make, or major things in my path, but I feel like God tugging on my heart to start praying about major unknown things. This conversation with God is refreshing because I feel more open than ever to be completely honest with myself and with God. I feel like I am laying more heart out more and more for Him.

This time every week is important to my soul. I feel refreshed and filled up. It’s just me and God and a whole bunch of strangers that I can easily ignore by putting in my headphones and listening to my many pandora stations.

It has become a tradition over the winter months and I am excited to continue it over the summer. What weekly traditions do you have that are food for you soul?
