Just do something...


if you follow me on instagram, you may have seen this picture last saturday morning.
i could have taken the same exact picture this morning!
so yes, i recycled a picture.
the point of this post is not about old pictures, i promise.
the point of this post is to share the above book with you: Just Do Something, by Kevin DeYoung.
this book has come at great timing n my life because i am goign through some major life changes:
moving far away, trying to find a job, making all new friends..etc.
we're reading this book in church class, and last week i was really challenged to live more simply.
the auther asks his gramdpa how he thought about fulfilling God's will in his life.
and the response is: "i never thought about fulfillment. i had a job. i ate. i lived. i raised my family. i went to church. i was thankful." 
wow.
grandpa didn't have as many choices for job, school...really anything, that we do today.
but here was the challenge to me: can i change my focus from trying to decipher and fulfill God's will in my life to more of a focus on spending more time with the Lord , and just doing things, rather than spending a ton of time trying to figure out if i like what i'm going to do?
we do have too many choices, which for me causes a struggle with indecision.
i ask that everything would be fine, and to know that everything would be fine.
i begin expecting too much, and being disappointed when every experience isn't rewarding.
this book states the obvious: "showing the future is not God's way...we should have confidence in God's will of decree so  that we can radically commit ourselves to His will of desire without fretting over a hidden wall of direction...God doesn't takes risks, so we can"

something to think about.

i could probably write a book on this book, but i'm not going.
but i do suggest reading it!
it has been challenging to me so far, especially since i have been making a lot of decisions lately.

Ecclesiastes 7:14
"when times are good, be happy;
but when times are bad, consider this:
God has made the one
as well as the other.
therefore, no one can discover
anything about their future."
