TOP TEN TUESDAY: Coming to Fruition
Happy Tuesday morning!
Often times we can get caught up in the future, or what we think may be coming. What we hope for and what excites us. But how many times have your own plans been thrown off course, changed, and, in the end, for the better? Planning is useless; anticipating a specific future is useless. Giving all that God, truly just allowing His Spirit to work is all that matters.
Nonetheless, there are some things coming up, if by God’s Grace they come to fruition, that I’m really exicited about.
Moving. The house Maddie, Mary and I looked at yesterday was very much what we have been hoping for. This is really exciting, but also a little scary.
Applying at Pure. I have a little passion for cafes and cute restaurants, and there’s a local one called Pure Juice Bar and Kitchen that I’m obsessed with. I’ve been wanting to apply there for so long, and just found out that they’re opening a new location this summer right near my uni!
Summer Trips. If money weren’t a factor, I would be going to Cuba, England, and Disney World this summer as I love talking about such dreams with friends. If only! But maybe one will work out… Either way, there’s always the cottage to look forward to.
Growing in Christ. I have lost the arrogance that I don’t need God and therefore opened myself to His Word, and all that I lack without Him. I am excited to finish the Bible, KNOW it well, and be brought to understanding it’s Truth by the Spirit.
Less Disordered Eating. So much of my disorder, I think, is rooted in the pain of my 13 year old disorder. The girl who felt like 600 pounds and who didn’t know how to stop eating at night. Now, that girl is gone and it is much harder TO eat. But the more I grow toward my Creator, the more I will just understand food the way food is meant.
Finishing my Book. I have been working on a novel for almost three years now, and recently I’ve been paying close attention to editing and the plot has changed a little bit. I don’t want to be so perfectionistic about it, but I can’t bring myself to send it to publishing just yet.
Teaching Dance. Becoming a dance teacher has come with some incredible opportunities, like a kids’ dance birthday party, and soon a children’sdance workshop over March Break. I have a huge passion for choreography.
Falling Further (By God’s Grace). I have fallen completely for the wonderful, funny, smart, gifted godly man in my life, and I am just excited to see what God has in store for us.
Travelling. I have a renewed want and suppressed fear to travel. I like being at home and in familiar places, but the more I know God the less I fear exploring because I want to see different corners of His Creation.
