Too deep for a Wednesday.

Do you ever feel like there’s something really fantastic waiting just within your reach, but you’re not being allowed to go and get it? I’ve been feeling that way for a while now.  Probably the past several months.  Like I’m just hovering in one spot and no matter how I might try to move this way or that, something is holding me where I am.  Maybe it’s just me subconsciously holding myself in a place that feels safe… but more likely it’s God keeping me here.  For whatever reason, there’s something I haven’t learned or haven’t finished or haven’t encountered yet.  Perhaps the thing I feel like I’m waiting for isn’t what I think it is… maybe it’s not what I want at all. Maybe what’s coming is so much better than I could have ever dreamed and I just have to be still… and know…

If you’re feeling this way too, take comfort in knowing that you’re not alone.  I don’t have any answers for you, but I can stand beside you.

*sigh* so that’s what’s on my heart today. If you just unfollowed me, I totally understand :)

Do not worry, change takes time. I believe it will happen when we are fully ready. I hope it does soon for you. Its no fun having the stuck feeling. All my best to you, and try a margarita or chocolate, that helps me deal! hehe... I like the saying

What will be will be.

Definitely not alone. Stuck, tethered, anchored. This is my most reoccurring emotion lately. But chocolate does help, and watching Audrey Hepburn movies!

Eloise and Brooke- I'm glad I'm not alone...

Leslie- :) Yeah. I'm so excited about what God did for you and Justin last night... I can't even imagine the encouragement you must feel. We're all praying for you!!

i feel the same exact way and you have expressed it so excellently! thanks! i don't know how to fix it but keep doing things that make me happy, like sew, thrift shop for my etsy, embroider and go on many many bike rides! also i have something in the works but haven't had the meeting yet to confirm if it is deal or not so i am in limbo right now and i am trying not to think about it and get my hopes up...thinking positive always makes things happen :)

have a great day!

Yes, last night was, in a word, amazing. We do feel extremely encouraged. I still can't really believe that it happened, but I know it did. I am so glad we were able to share the experience with our C-Group, too! And we are both excited about all the amazing things just waiting in the wings to happen for our C-Group.

I know *exactly* how you feel. Sometimes I feel snail-like: moving *very, very* slowly... Urg! So here's me. Standing in line with you. Waiting. With a hug :)

Oh girl - I know exactly what you mean. I feel that way a lot lately.
Strength in numbers, friend.
