Today is Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014. ::let that sink in:: Where has the time gone?!?
It's one thing to be away, its an entirely other thing to be absent--with that said, I've been away :)
September is always an interesting time for me.
My birthday falls right in the middle of September.
I start to ask myself the questions that many people do as they enter a new age, a new season.
Are you certain, you're going to be _________ years old? (This "age line" is awkwardly long... LOL)
What does Buzzfeed say you should be doing/having overcome/or stop doing prior to turning ______years old?
How much can you check off of your Life Plan list? (Sometimes referred as The Bucket List)
While some of these questions are necessary for growth in all facets of life-- they can be stressful. We must be careful to not let these answers weigh us down.
GG Renee of All The Many Layers has created a self-discovery challenge to help her readers truly identify who they are and who they would like to be.
Now, I know that my blog posts are inconsistent-- while that is a fact I am so desperately trying to change, I'm going to keep it real and disclaim that you may not see a post everyday. Days when I don't make it to this space, I'll keep a record and share back with you lovelies at a later time.
I'll start here on the blog with Day 2. Joy Snatchers.
When I think about the things, attitudes and lies that try and snatch at my joy, I think of
I am reminded of Habakkuk 3:18-19 that reminds us that even in the midst of chaos, destruction and uncertainty
"yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation. The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He will make me as surefooted as a deer and bring me safely over the mountains.
What are the joy snatchers in your life? What things, thoughts and attitudes take your peace and joy?
Identify them today and start denouncing them away!
P.S. If you would like to participate in this month's self-discovery challenge, feel free to sign up on GG Renee's page through the link above. If you feel like sharing, leave me a message or comment below and I'll come by and visit!
Always with love,
