What's good everyone?!?! First I would like to wish all of you guys a Happy New Year! I'm excited about 2011. Aren't you?
I didn't write any New Year's resolutions, but there are a few things that I plan to work on.
Last week I attended IMPACT 10 in Atlanta. This is a Christian conference for young adults. I dreaded going at first due to the fact that I wanted to stay at home and rest, but I am so happy that I went.
I had a chance to hear a lady by the name of Priscilla Shirer speak:
EVERYTHING that she said was extremely profound, but one thing stands out the most. She recently went through some of her old journals and noticed a pattern. When she was in high school she couldn't wait to be in college. When she was in college she couldn't wait to graduate. When she completed college she couldn't wait to get married. When she got married, she couldn't wait to have babies. She said that the Lord informed her that she has been sleepwalking through the majority of her life and if she doesn't break this habit she'll miss out.
I most definitely can relate. At times I am so anxious to move on to the next season of my life, that I fail to be present or live in the now.
The present is a blessing. There are lessons to learn. People to enjoy.
I vow to try my best to be fully engaged at where I'm at in my life today.
