I wish I had the energy to write something great tonight. I don’t.
As you can tell by the title, I’m exhausted.
Today was a mentally exhausting day as I battled the food enemy. Days come and go where food seems to rule my life, where the way I feel about my body takes control of other emotions.
God really convicted me today about where I place my value.
So often it seems to be found in myself, how I view myself, and how I perceive others to view me. Oops.
My bad, God [aka, forgive me].
So today I am beginning a journey to stop trying to make God look like me, and begin trying to look more like God.
Kara – impatient, constrained by time; God – eternal, patient and pursuing
Kara – imperfect; God – p-e-r-f-e-c-t.
Kara – jealous of others; God – jealous for Himself and His own.
Kara – irritable and grouchy when tired; God – never sleeps and always patient and full of mercy. Welcomes me back to holding His hand each and every minute I fall down.
He takes my hand each and every time. With a glad heart and rejoicing. Every. Single. Time.
That’s a lot of times. I fail a lot. I try to do things the Kara way a lot. And then I have days like today where I hear Him calling me back, drawing me in, and pushing my ways out the window.
