I’ve really struggled lately with sneaking away.
Sneaking away from work to make sure I’m enjoying life outside of work. Sneaking away from life outside of work by reading the Bible, but then struggling to make sure I actually sneak away to read.
Sneaking away from the little aches life sends my way, only to receive email after phone call after text after email after text. Friends checking in makes it even harder to sneak away :)
Here’s what I’ve learned: We can never fully sneak away.
If God wants us to have a break from life, He’ll send a break our way.
If God wants us to learn more about something, no matter how hard it hurts, He’ll send the lesson our way.
Life this past year has been full of little games of hide + seek.
I keep hiding.
Guess who keeps finding me?
Maybe you’ve noticed I’ve been acting a little funny this year. Not quite like myself, but not so unlike myself. Maybe you’re someone that’s called or texted or emailed to check in. If you are, I appreciate it so so much. I’ll be honest though — I am really struggling with opening up. How are some of you so darn brave? Share your secrets with me :)
I told a friend yesterday about some of these things, and her only words of advice?
Maybe God is trying to whisper something to you but you’re not listening.
Another friend I saw on Monday encouraged me to take more risks.
Maybe you have something encouraging to share below in the comments? Maybe you have a spare minute to say a prayer of peace over me? Maybe you can relate to me, so you’ll stay silent for just a moment longer?
Silence. Sometimes it can be really amazing. Other times it can be really overwhelming.
God, I know you hear my prayers. Speak to me…
