Arm yourself with God’s grace, with His passion, love, and strength. Wear His truth like armor, and go light the world.
Finding Your Place
The time you set aside to simply slow down, to be present, to live without focusing on what’s coming next—that’s what sets you free.
We spend so much time getting ready for this future, stressing over what hasn’t happened, and setting plans for what’s next that we forget to live in the moment. We forget to celebrate how far we’ve come. We forget that life isn’t always going to unfold how we want it to—but maybe that’s the most beautiful part.
Maybe plants are just one giant metaphor for the way this world works. Sometimes we have to fall down to learn how to get back up again. Sometimes we have to lose what we’ve held dear in order to chase what’s of value. Sometimes we have to say goodbye because everything is impermanent, we ourselves are impermanent, and goodbyes are healthy sometimes.
If you really want something, the first step starts with you.
