Bad Habits

I have some bad habits… I bite my nails, I almost always speak before I think, and I can’t hold in a burp to save my life. I’ve tried dealing with all of these, off and on again for years now. I still do all of them. But what about the bad habits that go beyond and deeper then the surface habits. The ones that when you think about them, they become overwhelming and seem to shoot out in all directions covering your life in this blanket of bad habit-ness (for lack of better words).

I have one of those. I constantly protect myself.

Banana Pancakes? ;)

Resistance

I notice that change seems to come in cycles. Some of them are familiar. Some of them are mind blowing. Me moving into an apartment by myself always sets of this cycle of change (which includes shutting people out so I can be alone) that I’ve been trying hard to resist. Ultimately leading me to fail because you just cant change change once its started its course. The mind is an incredible thing and ultimately an idea cant be stopped.

Pulling Me Back

God really has an incredible way of bringing me back to him. He knows me so well that, he knew exactly how to lay out my day so that not only do I see him everywhere but he even gently brings me back to his word. No pressure. Just by adding some intriguing “coincidence” to a series of events that couldn’t be ignored. Because believe me, I’m the type that if I think your trying to force me into do something that I do NOT want to do, I will fight tooth and nail to defy and resist you. God really just knows me so completely, inside and out. He knew exactly what I needed to see and found the perfect words to open my heart.

Failed Dreams

I signed up for my FIRST Christian retreat through my church Beaverton Foursquare! It’s been something I’ve had the desire to do for a year or so now. A strong desire. A dream really! To connect and share my faith and love of God with strangers and friends and not feel judged or at risk of being mocked. I am so excited! In fact, I’m so excited about it that I feel different already. Just signing up was enough to change me, inside somehow…

What is love?

I have an incredible boyfriend. He pushes me to seek God and to be a better person, when I’d rather happily stay in my comfort zone. The amazing thing about him is that he doesn’t do this for his benefit. He does it for mine, so that I can change and become who I am meant to be in Christ. BUT, this post isn’t about him. Its about me. :P
