I keep having this nagging feeling that I simply need to hit the reset button on my life. lately, all I’ve wanted is a short break from life and a clean start.
periodically, I have the urge to pause life and just take a breather, but not once have I so desired a fresh start. this is a new thing for me. but I imagine it won’t be the first time.
over the last year, I have strayed miserably from the person I was becoming while in undergrad. I liked that person. I loved her.
but now, I do not like who I am. I hate that I’ve let other materialistic things become more important than God and my family. I hate that I no longer enjoy school. I hate everything about the last year of my life.
so I’m hitting the reset button.
until I get it right.
I was listening to the a10 sermon podcast earlier this week and when the pastor asked “is Jesus enough for you?” I really began to listen. I wanted so badly to answer yes to that question, but right now I know that I can’t truthfully say yes.
so I’m making the change.
when I was 13, I committed myself to Jesus and the presbyterian church. well, it is high time that I honored that commitment. so I’m making the change necessary to do so.
will you make a change? the one your life so desperately needs?
the change I so desperately needed was to get Jesus and the bible back in my life.
so I did.
and it is comforting.
“come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” matthew 11:28
“if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.” 2 timothy 2:13
“the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end” lamentations 3:22
it is amazing that He forgives me for falling out of love with Him. but I’m so glad He will let me back in and welcome me with open arms.
p.s. I made cupcakes, but didn’t write down what I did… yes, I know, it’s sad. so you’ll have to wait for the next batch of cupcakes for a recipe post. sorry!!
p.p.s. but I will give you a beautiful song in this post to make up for it!
