As much as I hate them; blogging breaks are so good for my soul. God always uses them to show me a little more of me in ways I cannot see when my heart and brain are clogged with technology. He reminds me more and more that I get so caught up in everything that doesn't matter in life. In making a name for myself, in pursuing my dreams for myself, in making a life of comfort for myself. Myself myself myself.
It really hit home today when I happened upon this video a few of my friends shared on Facebook. My heart was pierced as I was once again reminded how fragile and precious life is. But honestly, it wasn't anything we haven't heard before.
Make memories with those you love.
Jesus is all that truly lasts.
And all the 1001 inspiration quotes I can say in my sleep.
I want more.
I want to live in a way that acts like today is a gift. I want to truly realize there is more than growing a successful handmade shop. More than a K behind my number of Instagram followers. More than being the best wife or mama. More than all this stuff that drags me down each day.
Jesus, fill my heart with You.
Fill my life with relationships that will make much of You.
Fill my vision with Eternity and what that truly means.
Fill my time on Earth with less of me and more of You.
