My Story

I love reading about people being people. You know, being themselves. Being who God created to be and living (or striving to live) at their fullest potential. That's what I love most about the blogosphere. We are all a bunch of people just living our lives, trying to make our print on the world. We may not make it in to the history books, but, for some of us, that's not the point.

So then I got to thinking. What is my story? When it is all said and done, how do I want my story to play out?

Yeah, I'm sure most people have it figured out by now. And I sure as heck thought I had it figured out at least two dozen times by now. But, hey, c'est la vie?!

So my challenge to you (and myself) is to kick of these forty days of Lent and really try to figure out who it is God is asking you to be just for these forty days. I could say let's figure it out for the rest of our lives, but we're not supposed to know who we're going to be in five or ten years.

Life is full of moments. 
Those moments are what define are days - for better or worse. 
I believe it is in those moments that God calls us to simply be
Be ourselves and follow His path for us. 
And in these next forty days, I am going to do just that :
be who I am supposed to be now
Today. Not tomorrow, not next year. Today. 
And He will lead me safely in to tomorrow.

I believe it is that simplicity, that patience, and that obedience that will give me the joy, the moments, and the memories that will define my story for when I meet my Creator.

Happy Ash Wednesday!
