Present Over Perfect – Day 42

New Fuel  begins on page 215 and we are almost at the end of our Present Over Perfect journey!

What fuels your life?

What is your big WHY?

Why do you get up each day and do the things you do?

The answers to these questions are changing in my own life. What drove my actions, my responses, my thoughts, my writing, my very way of living – all those things that I do each day – that fuel is changing.

It’s so hard to explain and put into words here. I’m in the midst of my very own sea-change and I feel as though it might take a while to write about what is happening.

I have to tell you that I’ve been reading two other books while finishing up Present Over Perfect. It’s super weird. I’ve never been a person that can read more than 1 book at a time. Shucks, I have trouble finishing even ONE book at a time.

But something is changing.

And all of these words, these books, these stories – are shaping the very being of who I am.

Today I finished the book Hinds’ Feet in High Places by Hannah Hurnard.


And I’m in the middle of the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.


Each one of these books deals with slowing down, changing perspective and going to a different place with God.

Do you have a new fuel? Are you realizing life can be different than what you’ve known all along?

  1. I don’t think I consciencely thought of slowing down, or what fuels me but reading the book and sharing thoughts with someone other than myself it seems that God has been slowing me down even in the turmoil that my life has become. I have a center that is stronger than I have ever known. I am more focused on God and what He wants of me. I am beginning to be able to share with others the wonders God is revealing to me. I am still becoming. Thanks for being a listening ear way out there in cyberland, and helping me put things in some sort of perspective. Thank you so much for this Book Club that was just my speed!

    1. You’re welcome! This book has been so helpful for me in seeing that the perspective to slow down really is OK! I see so much of myself in Shauna – the achiever and the busy body. I don’t want that to be soundtrack of my life. I want to live what I left at a different pace!
