hard things are a lot like weeding.
each time a struggle arises as they do, we have an opportunity to continue to water the weeds of that struggle, continuing down the same cycles,
or begin to water the weeds of newness– of growth. of change. we can let God pick and throw away the old ones.
we are hard wired in this day to avoid anything that makes us feel pain or feel uncomfortable.
we hate it. it hurts. its uncomfortable. so we numb out.
hard things are a lot like waking up.
when i was deep in my slumber of just getting through life, tragedy strikes and cuts me to my core.
what if i press in to it? to the pain? what will happen?
will i allow this to wake me up, will i allow this to create a new story for me, to change the trajectory of my life?
or, will i just continue to numb?
what if the struggle, is the gift?
God is speaking. is He?
i just have a choice, now.
who do I want to be?
