TOP TEN TUESDAY: Livin and Stuff
So often I get asked, “How do you have time to blog? It seems like you’re always so busy.”
I have time to blog because I just do it. I love blogging, I have a passion for writing, and if I don’t make time for blogging now, how will I ever have time? There are always reasons not to start something, but a million to just get going– and Truth in it comes from the power of the Holy Spirit.
Any way, that’s enough of a rant for today.
Here’s a current Top Ten:
Music. My genuine taste is straying from country… I’ll always love it, but I’m more into EDM now. Overall, I usually am listening to some sort of worship music, but there’s not much I don’t like.
Food. Eating primarily wholesome, plant based carbs has given me more energy than I’ve ever experienced. When I go for my runs, I feel like I can run forever. I love eating smoothies made of just frozen bananas and berries, sweet potatoes with dates and veggies, and baked oatmeal.
Stress. I’ve been really anxious recently about school. Feeling like I haven’t put my all into this semester… stressed for no good reason about petty grades that don’t matter, mostly because I really don’t think I’m in the right place. My Spirit is drawing me somewhere else, but in Him I know I have no cause for anxiety, for He had walked through the rest of my life and it will be made to glorify Him no matter what.
Dance. I can do a shoulder roll again… my toe point is better… my pirouette is better… AH, it feels so good to dance again, and Krystal and I plan to all summer.
Bible Study. A lot of my week has been focused in Colossians which has been incredible. The Spirit teaches and guides in new ways each time I soak in the Word and let Him take over.
People. I’m excited to be able to spend more time with loved ones this summer! Spending time with and investing in the wonderful people in my life is so important to me and I can’t wait to make new memories.
Babies. I know so many people with due dates in the next month! My first cousin is giving birth to a baby boy, my best friend’s sister is pregnant with a girl, and two of my pastors who are married are due, all in the next few weeks! So many babies to meet.
Humbling. My opa, who has always echoed an epitome of strength to me, is struggling physically. He has the strongest mind and body imaginable, and it is genuinely odd to see him in any way struggling. When I was younger I had this mindset that he was invincible– but it’s the Lord in Him is. In that I know He only counts his suffering as joy.
Clothes. I love summer clothes and cannot wait to go bikini shopping, shorts shopping, and the whole shabang. Most of my spent money seems to go to clothes or coffee.
Blog. I recently happened across the blog of one of Johnny’s friends, Josee. She is a beautiful, God-loving soul who I am blessed to be communicating with. Be sure to check her out here
