I am finding that the biggest hurdle to living the good life is learning to refocus my mind. Learning to give up worry and fear in my "what ifs". It means really surrendering the future and those I love to the One who controls it in the first place.
Only in ridding my mind of the things I am trying so hard to control and change can I can start to refocus on the beautiful life that is already mine.
"Keep on praying. No matter what happens always be thankful, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18
I have started two lists, one with my worries and fears and another with my hopes and dreams. I will be spending the summer finding scripture promises that will bring me peace and joy in every one of the things I've written down.
My hope is to share a little of what I find here with you on Fridays. I will warn you ahead of time that I may miss a Friday here or there as I am easily distracted here my blog.
I've also started another list. This one is of things I wanted to do when I retired but still haven't gotten around to. I'll be sharing that with you next week along with what I plan on doing about it.
Based on your comments and emails, I know I'm not alone on this journey. Sometimes walking the path to change with others makes it easier to take the first step. Let me know if your joining me. I'd love to hear what's keeping you from living out your dreams, too.
Have a wonderful weekend.
