As I read The Narrowing chapter for today’s reading I have to admit something:
The stories Shauna told in the beginning paragraphs with her family made my heart ache and long for that in my own life.
We don’t do those things. At least we haven’t very much.
The days are few and far between where we sit and play and enjoy the moments without rushing to the next thing.
I’m not one of those people that figured this out earlier in life.
I’m one of the “most of us” – trying to fill a wound, trying to outrun something, turning up the volume to drown out a song that’s been haunting us all our lives.
I’m just not sure yet what it is that I’ve been running from or trying to drown out or trying to prove with all the hustle.
And that’s ok. I don’t have to know the answer to that right now.
The point is that God has birthed this new longing deep in my soul to change my ever so crazy life.
I guess I’ll always be crazy, but maybe a bit less stressed crazy and a good crazy that always makes you smile and know you’re not alone, friends.
What have you learned about narrowing your life? Is this something you’ve been doing already or something you’re just now considering?
