The Promise of Spring // Glimpses Link Up
Oh dear friends, how I’ve missed you. Not only am I not doing much writing, but I’m not doing much reading and so I feel as if I’ve lost touch with all of you. Tax season has meant long days and weekends with little energy left over for writing or social media. But honestly, I haven’t felt like writing much. I know a lot of it has to do with my lack of energy, but I feel as if I’m stuck in another rut. Life moves swiftly past my eyes and I find myself questioning if I’m living the life God has planned for me. Do you ever feel as if life is happening all around you, but you aren’t really caught up in it yet? In some ways, I feel as if I’m on the sidelines looking in.Life moves swiftly and I find myself questioning if I'm living the life God has planned for me. #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet
I’ve been asking God to show me the greater plan for my life, because I know there is one. I don’t have an answer yet. All I know to do is to love Him and allow Him to love me, and to love others. Beyond that, I live day to day.
Depression and anxiety will stop you from living the life you were intended to live. Perhaps that is where I find myself. I won’t stay here, I know this, but it’s where I am now. This coupled with the fact that I am physically and mentally exhausted doesn’t leave a lot of room to discern God’s heart. I am thankful He gives me enough energy to get through each day, and enough grace to let go of those things I am not able to do, and there are many.
I was looking out in my front yard the other day and see glimpses of beauty among the dying. There are promises of spring that bloom in the winter season. There is a promise of hope and life where once was death. I look forward to welcoming spring with open arms.
How about you? What are you most looking forward to in Spring time?
And now I continue to list the beauty that I’m finding in my every day life.
