Ready for another “I’m not really all that cool” confession. I already told y’all that I’m not super athletic and I’m finally okay with that. And now I’m here to tell you that I don’t really want to climb mountains, or mountain bike through forests, or go skydiving.
My idea of fun, or shall I say, my idea of “enjoyment” is… relaxing.
Bring on a sandy beach or lapping lake, a reclining chair, waves crashing, a book… and I’m set. I could literally do that every day of my life. (Well, theoretically… cause the closest I ever got to that life was in Costa Rica. And that’s been a looooooooong time ago. I threw in a pic of me above at my recent 24-hour get away for my 9th anniversary to a local lake. All we did was chill and relax.)
So, when I hear this in scripture…
Only in returning to me and waiting will you be saved. Quietness and confidence is your strength. Isaiah 30:15
That God WANTS me to be chill. He WANTS me to relax. He WANTS me to just wait for Him. He WANTS me to be quiet.
Well, I get pretty happy.
Cause I like being told “slow down. wait. chill out.”
And if I can just remember that in my food journey, then things will be so much better.
God is working in me. on me. through me.
I just need to sit back, follow His lead, and enjoy the rest.
Lord God, you are so good to take care of me. As much as I try to weasel my way into being a part of it all… you always seem to just take care of everything.
Help me to calm down and just… WAIT. Help me to quiet my soul and be confident that You will save me. Help me to return to You when I run away.
Thank you for Your forgiveness that makes me WANT to return to You. Thank you for the hope you give me. You are my ALL.
