There’s a lot of things we know we should do in life….
We should stick to a budget
We should be aware of what is going on in the world
We should forgive, be kind, be generous
We should eat healthy
We should exercise…
One thing I’ve learned this last year is that as you walk with God, He will transform the guilt inducing ‘should do’ into ‘want to’ when you are ready to grow in an area of life.
For a change of pace I wanted to share with you some spoken word poetry I created for our church service a couple weeks ago. Hope you find it thoughtful and encouraging.
So…today is the day…the BIG 4-0 has struck! I’d like to tell you it no longer seems so bad, but I can’t. I can say I no longer feel panicked or depressed about it and I’ve given up pouting. I think I’ve been holding my breath and after today I’ll let it out, settle into my 40s and forget the fuss I made.
I don’t like getting older…however, as I see the remodeling God is doing in my heart and life I’m becoming excited about what the future may hold!
