Continuing our theme of transparency, this week was crazy for me. When I start a new series on GTR, every insecurity I have comes at me and every step forward feels like it’s met by 3 steps back. Work is incredible, but we are growing so fast that my once semi-attainable job responsibilities now feel like mountains pushing down my baby mole-hill. And on top of that, T’s work schedule has resulted in a “Oh hey there, did you have a beard the last time I saw you?” type relationship.
I boo-hooed over these things for a whole day this week. Sometimes life doesn’t feel like a highway you want to ride all night long. Sometimes it’s a meany pants you want to kick in the shins and tell to be nice. Sometimes, it’s just really hard to get out of the selfish little clod mode, no matter how many encouragers you have and even if one of their names is Jesus.
It takes intentionality and hard work to focus on others, make decisions about what is ‘enough’ in our life, and use what we possess to bless others.
So as we take this journey together, remember:
- Expect it to be difficult. Fight the urge to be a feverish, little clod of ailments and grievances.
- Tweak what we explore to fit you. Your temperament, your family, your life. Your purpose is different than mine or anyone else’s.
I’m so thankful for each of you and that we get to discuss and think about these things together! How was this week for you?
