no room for complacency

It's 2:15 in the morning and I'm laying on my mattress that I dragged to the living room yesterday...camping in the living room is amazing! I've been packing for the last couple of hours, which seems ludicrous to do at such an hour, but leave it to my dear friend, "Procrastination", to pencil it in to my schedule. His friend, "Poor Planning" , came along with him, but I'm making the most of their company and in light of the stress of it all, I'm becoming rather sentimental as I often do when I pack up my life to migrate somewhere else.

I've actually managed to perfect an art of this task. As I've mentioned before, it is no stranger of mine, but as I toiled away this evening/morning I realized how unique my life has become due to the lack of consistency I've had in a place to lie my head.

Everywhere I move to, I have room for my bed, my clothes, my knick knacks I never look at, my toothbrush and with all that taking up space, I have no room for room to be contented to a fault or self-satisfied and unconcerned (thanks for that def.)

I kinda love a look at where I've been, who that's made me, what I want to be and where I'm headed. I love that it shakes me up in a refreshing way and that God teaches me something new and exciting every time. At 2:15 in the morning, if you can believe it, I had a revelation.

I need to make my mind and heart "move" every week, so that I don't create rooms for complaceny out of what were created to be chambers for His glory.

Here's to cleaning out the space between who I am and who He's intended me to be.

Is there a "like" button? I like this. I think about this at times. Daily life seems to be all about trying to be comfortable and in that we lose some of the things that we need to learn and our purpose.

You need to write a book. Seriously. Not necessarily about your life but just write one cause you are a stinkin amazing writer.

Secondly, you see God in EVERYTHING & I love that about you. Wish you'd pack up and move to west Texas. It's pretty sweet out here, ya know.

Oh girl, you speak truth. You can definitely find beauty and the poetry from every day, seemingly mundane things. What a testment to our great God! -Steph Midkiff
