I am not happy if I cannot finish…
I want to see what happens, I want to see the completed project! Sometimes I want to read the end of the book before I read the pages in between so I can see how it ends!
Hmmmmm, I wonder if I apply that thinking to my own life?
I have always been very “goal oriented”. My type “A” personality always has a list, a plan, an end in site. You know, one of those people that adds things to her list just so she can check them off! And yet, life has a way of allowing situations to come into your life that might suggest there is no end.
And that does not set well with me.
But I’m learning to enjoy and learn from the process. I’m learning to live in the moment. I’m learning to glorify God in the middle of the process, not only in the end. Does there always have to be an end?
When I resigned from teaching, I just knew there was something “special” He was calling me to. I think a little bit of spiritual pride entered into this little head of mine. I have been waiting to see what that was….but the whole time I was missing the blessing of the process.
I have no idea what my future holds. All I know is that He has called me to the “here and now”. I am to walk out this day only surrendered to Him. Then when I wake up in the morning, I will walk out that day surrendered. I am to learn in the process, and not worry about the finish or how it actually ends!
It’s kind of like reading “samples” on my Kindle. Sometimes I just enjoy the sample….and not worry about purchasing the rest of the book. Good training for me actually……
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19
I am not sure Amazon will like that though~
