Oh these feet ached…wanted so bad to kick those shoes off in the parking lot and run barefoot on the hot pavement to my car. Monday shoes, Monday blues. This week my Write Word was “press on.” What does that mean…well I think time will reveal more, but I feel clarity and I’m staying the path.
Feeling a bit restrained, feeling that there’s not enough time to do it all. Let’s get real, hustle is totally overrated when it feels like you’re going no where. And when it feels like you’ve forsaken what’s really important. When it feels like all is for nought. I’m so sick of the word hustle. Does God really want us to hustle? Honestly, I don’t think so. I think he’s more concerned with patience and long-suffering. The words came – press on – and I wrote them down…and faithfully, I waited knowing the meaning would come.
I like how the Lord feeds me to continue…to move towards him. Just a morsel here and there. And sometimes it would be missed if I wasn’t looking. I know it must be him because it stirs my heart and I can only give him the glory for the abundant blessings. Wednesday, I walked into Lifeway looking for the Sadie Robertson school supplies for the girls. And this is what I saw…
I designed 6 sets of notes and note cards exclusively for Lifeway for DaySpring…but it’s been a good while and I wasn’t sure when they would come to market. My heart swelled and I knew this was one of those little nuggets God revealed for me to press on, to stay the path. I hand-drew those flowers and those dots and those stripes. I picked and designed every detail of color and foil right down to the width and color of the ribbon. I pained over this. I wanted to do a good job, the best I could. My dream was to work at DaySpring and dare I say it hurt my soul to accept the fact that it just couldn’t happen last year. I was rooted here, I had a different path.
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
