It’s Tuesday! This week Holley asked us…What do you really want more of in your life? Will you dare to say it out loud?
If you had asked me this question 10 years ago you would have gotten a completely different answer. Back then I wanted a bigger house, better car, to go on trips, you know…all the things society tells us we should want. It didn’t help that my self-confidence was low so I also thought I had to have these things to fit in and have others like me.
Wow – that was hard to write. I wanted to go back and delete that but I couldn’t. Was that really me? As much as I hate to admit it, it was. I bought into what the world was telling me. That was also a time in my life when I didn’t have a very close relationship with God.
I am overwhelmed with emotions right now realizing how far I have come and how different I am.
I have been through some rough times over the past few years and now I can look back and see that God was bringing me to my knees so I would look up to Him. He pursued me because He loves me.
I can now say that I am thankful for those tough times. I now know what is important and what I want more of in my life.
I want hugs and kisses from my husband and kids. I want silly times and hard times that bring us closer. I want to be a good friend and encourage those around me. I just want to be me because God created me and has a purpose just for me.
I want God’s light to shine through me and live a life that glorifies Him.
What am I giving up for my wants?
I am giving up the worry and stress of being who everyone else wants me to be. I am giving up the wants of our society. I am giving up things that take time away from my family. I am giving up things that keep me from going after my God-sized Dream!
What do YOU want more of in your life? Are you willing to give up things to get it?
Please let me know how I can pray for you.
Blessings to You,
Join us over at Holley’s to see what other dreamers want more of in their lives.
