What is it about this time in our lives? Is it simply a phase of life? Is it the town we live in? Is it that we desperately need a re-evaluation of ourselves and our lives? I have asked myself question after question and I could go on and on with them. But in short, I’d have to say the answer is yes to all of them.
I should add, as well, that I am happy! This is not a “welcome to my pity party” post. I’m blessed by God beyond belief with a wonderfully devoted husband, a beautiful baby on the way, a house to decorate, art to create, thoughts to write, family and friends, blessed with all of this and so much more that makes my life rich in every way…and yet I know this is not “it”.
There is so much more I want out of myself, out of my life and I know I’m not alone. Ironically, as I have been sitting here writing at my favorite coffee shop, I’ve been [happily] interrupted by two friends telling me the same thing…they, too, are “stuck in a rut” and are unsure of how to navigate out. It’s an astonishingly typical topic of conversation for many I know.
This too shall pass. And really, what an opportunity for ANYTHING to result out of this place in our lives! With God’s help and wisdom, I believe it will all work together for our good. And we will all look back on this time in our lives and it will become a testament for us of His faithfulness and an encouragement of His blessing on diligence and perseverance.
(I should add, as well, this post was largely inspired by one of my best friend’s blog post this morning. Thanks, Candace.)
