So here it is. The think the big thing I am struggling with is vanity and selfishness. I feel like I have really grown in my faith this year. Like God is growing me up. Turning me into a grown up. Changing my perspective. However..... I find myself focusing on my wants. Like new shoes. A cute pair of jeans. An outfit that wasn't on sale.Something trendy. Oh my. Did I forget that God clothes flowers? Who am I to worry about clothes? Do I have some? Yes. I do. More clothes than 90% of the world. Why do I whine? Is that what really matters? I feel petty.
I struggle with laziness. I am so tired. So often when I have a few minutes at either end I do nothing.
I struggle with trust. My heart knows God has plans for me. But my head wonders when our break will come.
And I worry. I have had about four to five severe headaches a week for the past month. I am pretty sure they are stress related. There is some secret worry buried deep. I need to hand it over. Hopefully after being honest with myself and my Grace Filled Savior I can work on scooping out that gunk. And letting my light shine. In the dark places God has positioned me in.
Like our lantern. Willie.
