Calling all friends, fellow mamas, passion-pursuers, and artistic souls. Inviting all amazing grandmas and mentor moms. Come, young creatives, and entrepreneurs, I want to hear from YOU. Your opinion, your dreams, your thoughts and daily life matter. When I write, I have you in mind. You and a plate of cookies, but what’s new?
One of the monumental life lessons I’m daily gobbling and sipping is the art of pausing. Pausing to be present to finding my sole identity in Jesus, and experiencing God all-around. Pausing to savoring marriage, to meeting my boys’ eyes, and leaving space for Jesus’ agenda to be more important than my calendar. Every day offers a choice to pause in the present, or fast-forward to the future.
Pause, I choose you. Fast-forward beckons self-focus, while pause inhales a Christ-cling, an eternal perspective. Life cupped open-handed in a pause posture invites freedom.
What if I were to write more than a blog post about pausing the fast-forwarded frenzy in order to gain peace, freedom, and identity?
What if I were to invite you to sit on my couch, as together, we dialogue about our daily activities, mixed with faith and work and relationships and kids, with a longing to squeeze abundant living from it all?
Would you relate? Do you wish to pause a fast-forwarded agenda? What if I shared lessons about stilling the inner race, the discontent chase, the look-around unsettledness, and invite you to awaken to confidence in His timing, His peace, His plan?
Would you care to enter into the conversation? Dig into this read? Do you too, long to pause everyday moments, and hold them tight and tender, trusting He is working incredible miracles in simple spaces? Does the thought root that There must be more, there must be an abundant-ness out there? Does the fast-forward ever exhaust and leave you disappointed?
You are my people and I want to hear from you. Nothing but open ears and safe space here. Honesty beckons and your words matter.
Because maybe, just maybe there’s more in store.
How does the idea of pausing settle with your insides? In what areas do you wish to pause? When do you most experience abundant living and His presence? Let’s start this conversation by leaving your thoughts on the blog. Let’s hear it!
