Monday, September 21

just another monotonous monday

same old, same old today. wake up, take a shower, look for jobs, tweek resume, send resume, spend way too much time looking at pictures and such on facebook, hang out with family and/or friends. intersperse that with some fall shoe shopping, reading, doing devotionals and some phone calls and welcome to my day. sounds promising, relaxing, fun (would anyone like to make a trade?), but... the grass is always greener. the longer these days go on, the more i long for ones that are different. but it's at these times, when i'm feeling at wit's end, that i need to take a deep breath and remember: that breath is a gift. this day is a gift. i'm not guaranteed anything. do not sell today short for hoping and dreaming of something i have no certainty will ever come to be. these days have reason and purpose just as much as any to come. Lord Jesus, help me to live in the present.

  1. Sarah, I can totally relate! There are days when I think I just can't do a 9-5 job anymore, and then when I'm off from work for a while, I think I just might go crazy with how much time I have on my hands. One of my favorite things Pastor Andy has said is, "Wherever you go, YOU go." I guess if I'm going to follow myself around for the rest of my life, I should start praying the prayer you wrote too :)

    Hoping your day is great,

    Kristen :)
