The journey continues with @sarahjakesroberts #dontsettleforsafe
, a short book but a tough read. I found the way my heart, mind & mouth (attitude) was wandering today it was imperative that I continue. There are moments where my
️ beat feels erratic while reading. I've felt anxious like I couldn't breathe and turn another page. I just had to walk away. Close it and say "I'll start back another day." It's not the enemy like one may glean from this. It's tough reading it because the journey is so familiar; maybe a bit more strenuous because I know she came out in the end of the storm saying "oh but God
". Meanwhile I'm a bit older and I'm pedaling through this storm like Fred Flinstone driving his car with his feet. PAINFULLY!
Painful recognition of some hard truths and understanding that my faith & salvation lies within the routine AND the journey. This is a real attempt to learn, appreciate and love the idea that the victories may not be grand, not many thank you's or acknowledgement of good works may come. Many won't understand or share these truths w/me because the reward isn't tangible to them or immediate. I keep reading
so I can regain and maintain knowing that the reward is in recognition and life application. The grace to have one more time to do it right and say in the end victoriously "oh but God" #pressingthrough #dontsettleforsafe #startoversunday #message #reward #grace #sarahjakesroberts #kingdomwoman
