Distracted

Hi friends, I’ve been out of touch. I’ve had so many doses of hope all written up and ready to go, and yet I keep getting sidetracked by all the other things that pop up in life and all sorts of new distractions: wedding planning, Pinterest, instagram (like the photo above!) … I’d be totally lying to you if I said I wasn’t easily distracted.

Today I was telling God that my mind is so all over the place that I don’t know where it even is, when I opened an email and saw this verse.

...that you may serve the Lord without distraction. – 1 Corinthians 7:35

I needed it. I’m working on time management, because I think that’s the number one thing standing between me and the things I want to do and feel called to do.

But I’m also going to start sharing some of my distractions, because I’m loving all of the creativity that God is opening up in me recently after so many years of more serious distractions – like illness, financial strain, etc. So in other words, I’ll be putting my new distractions in their right place … giving myself creative time but also carving out the time I need and want to share with all of you.

This blog has changed a lot in the last 6 months, but I’m really excited to watch as God continues to unfold this new life in front of me while also reflecting on what He’s done in my old life. (And I’m incredibly grateful for all the new friends He’s brought my way through it as well!)
