Come on and Take a Breath

I know many of you blog, but do you ever get this rush of great posts ideas? Sometimes I will get some, write them down, and then they sit. They sit on the scrap of paper or napkin I shoved into my purse. Weeks later I find it and have one of those AHA moments! Maybe it's just me, but when I find the list I get recharged and want to share sooo much with you.
A few weeks ago when I was at church I listened as the reading and homily was about being satisfied. I don't know they ever used the word "satisfied," but that's what I took from it. I know my New Year's promise was to be in my state of being and to be content with what I have. The reading and message I took could not have been more on target. God wants us to not worry about what we are wearing that day, where we will go eat, and many other things. Instead, to focus on Him, His word, and make our actions like His.

I hope this does not come across too preachy, but this really touched me. I suppose since I promised myself to "just be" this year and let little things slide it struck me that my state of not wanting more left a small hole. Actually, it was a BIG hole, but needed to be filled with Him, The Lord. Isn't it funny how God works? I almost felt like I was whacked upside the head and someone said, "Duh, Katie! This is what you missed in your plan." (It makes me laugh just thinking about it). I am still trying to locate the exact reading, but was so immersed in my thoughts I forgot to write it down... go figure! How often do we want more and forget what it's all about in the first place?

Just thought you should know!


  1. Katie, I was reflecting on that last weekend. That passage about how not to worry about tomorrow, because he will provide what we need for today.
    Thanks for the inspiration<3

  2. I love this. I've been trying to slow down the past couple of months and really take in the great things that are surrounding me - I was in such a rush-rush-rush state for some reason... it feels good to slow down and be mindful of yourself and your surroundings. :) I'm glad you received a great message during church! It's a great feelings.

  3. Love this! I love that all He wants is for us to relax, slow down, and listen. So against our natures.

  4. Really enjoyed this post and was very touched by the message, I'm glad you shared!
