This is bits and peices of my mind/soul. Which if you know me, is a stretch to share with others at all, being the introvert I am. It’s nothing fancy. No perfect spelling or grammar skills (cause that’s never been my cup of tea). Just a simply put place where I will attempt sharing unfinished thoughts, from an unfinished me. There is a quote I love that says:
“She is caught between who she is, and who she wants to be.”
That lately has been one of the most relatable sayings I’ve come across. Not in a sad and depressing way at all. But from me being honest that I am the furthest thing from perfect. No one is. Only my gracious Savior holds the title of perfection. And only He ever will. But I’m learning that, that’s okay. We aren’t demanded to be perfect. But we are demanded to glorify our creator. Everyday. Every moment. And when we fall, he picks us back up. Even though we don’t deserve it. And I think every one of us is living proof of that in some part of our life. I know I am. The more I mess up the more I don’t like who I am. The more I fail, the more I worry. That I’m just stamped as failure. The girl that just can’t get it right. That eventually God will forget me because I’m just not worth it. And I’m not worth what He gives me. In any way. But, He still does. Even though some days I feel like #1 failure in life. He is so faithful. He puts me back on my feet again. He shows me that He is stronger than my doubts. Larger than my fears. When I mess up, and come begging for His forgiveness, He forgives me. And He restores my soul.
“…His mercies are new every morning”.
And so, what I mean by an unfinished me, is just that I will never be complete. Never be through growing. Never stop messing up somehow. Life is a journey of ups and downs. But while I am living my life unfinished as I am, I will be reaching to live my life to its fullest potential. For His praise only. Until the day that I see my savior face to face, and finally, become complete.
But, life is short. Let’s not take life for granted. Notice the small and simple things around you. See how such a tiny thing, truly is extraordinary. A smile, a hug, a “I love you”, a sunbeam through your window, that first sip of coffee every morning. We are so blessed in millions of ways. But yet we are always wanting more. Don’t waste your life away never being happy with where you are. God isn’t finished with you yet, or me. But while he is shaping me into who I need to be. I want to stop and smell the roses. He didn’t give us all he has to throw it in the ordinary and boring folder. Because it isn’t. It’s extraordinary. If you be still, and notice it for its fullest potential. Be still.
