Just showed up

Lately, I have felt God moving in powerful waves through me, in me, and all around. I think I've really felt "free" and have allowed God to work in a powerful way to not only heal me medically, but to also dig a little deeper. It's just the simple everyday things. Being a true servant. Doing the right thing when it's easier to do the other. Being an encourager. Sharing my faith. Letting His Word become ALIVE in me. It's being content no matter what the circumstances are, or just allowing myself to be open with my hands ready to receive. I feel SO BLESSED and SO LOVED by God and I am so THANKFUL to Him DAILY for all the good, all the positiveness I have, and for letting me be a light among this world we live in...that's falling apart by the second.

I came across this song today I frequently used to listen to. It's very inspiring and makes me smile every time I hear it :) It's about someone "Just showing up for their Own Life"...meaning letting God live it for you. Knowing He's in Control...Always...and that His ways are always higher than our own. Are you fully letting God live your life for you or are you preoccupied with living it how you want...only letting God in when things don't go so well?

Just Showed Up For My Own Life
By: Sara Groves

Spending my time sleep walking
Moving my mouth but not saying a thing
Hoping the changes would take by working their way from the outside in
I was in love with an idea
Preoccupied with how a life should appear
Spending my time at the surface repairing the holes in the shiny veneer

There are so many ways to hide
There are so many ways not to feel
There are so many ways to deny what is real

And I just showed up for my own life
And I'm standing here taking it in and it sure looks bright

I'm going to live my life inspired
Look for the holy in the common place
Open the windows and feel all that's honest and real until I'm truly amazed
I'm going to feel all my emotions
I'm going to look you in the eyes
I'm going to listen and hear until it's finally clear and it changes our lives
