Webster defines SEASON as a time characterized by a particular circumstance or feature. If I was going to give this season of my life a title it would be the "GRIND". It may sound like a weird word to use during this season of my life, but it just feels right. My husband has been looking for a job for over 3 months now while also launching a business, I have been working full time while trying to run my blog and beachbody business, all while trying to be a great wife and serve at my church. Even when I write it out I wonder how I am managing to stay afloat. It's like there is this pressure weighing on my shoulders that in order to have a really great life in ten years, I have to work really hard right now. But here's the thing.. I don't want to miss this sweet season I am in because I am so focused on the next season and making it really great.
I love Lysa Terkeurst quote from the "Best Yes" that says, “Like a tree, a woman can’t carry the weight of two seasons simultaneously. In the violent struggle of trying, she’ll miss every bit of joy each season promises to bring.”
And that's my fear. That while I hustle to make the future beautiful and perfect, I would miss this sweet season God has me in. I would miss it just being me and Brian in our cute little one bedroom apartment. I would miss being able to go on a walk, run to Target, spend hours drinking coffee with friends or just being lazy on the couch. I know this season won't last forever and I want to embrace it with open arms and soak it all in.
"Lord, I pray that you would help me to slow down this holiday season. To listen more and talk less. To laugh until I am nearly in tears and quit worrying so much about making everyone else happy. To say no a little more and yes a little less. To make every single moment special by just being THERE. To plan more so I can stress less. To love my husband and family REALLY REALLY well and quit focusing on being perfect. I pray that this holiday would be one for the books and that you would use it to quite my soul. I know the other side of it will be better then I could ever imagine! You are good and I love you so much Jesus! Amen."
