Designated Time.

In life there are many seasons. Some are slow, busy, hard, easy, a time of reflection, etc. For me, this is a busy season. Growing up I never thought that this time in my life would be so busy and full. I most definitely am not complaining. My life is full of many wonderful things. I have a full-time job with a boss who is so great. I volunteer at my church as a High School Senior Girl leader. I have a wonderful community group who wants to be known and walk with each other through life. Not to mention coffee dates, bible studies, time with my man, and Once Upon a Time nights with my roommates. Everything is so wonderful and I am in awe of all of the blessings in my life and how I got to where I am right now. [God is good.]

I mentioned that I have been reading the books  Restless and The Best Yes (which I highly recommend– and I’m only a few chapters in. SO good). Those first few chapters of Restless have challenged me in praying and examining where my “sweet spot” is. Where God has gifted me and how I can be used as a vessel for Him. The Best Yes has been challenging me in respect to listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit to be used by Him, even in the small things, and prioritizing my schedule so that my time is effective for Him.

In the last month my busy schedule made a few changes which opened up my Friday afternoons. That’s 4 unclaimed hours. 4 hours that can be so easily filled with countless things. But I am making this my designated time. This time will be used for all things crafty, for projects that have been started and almost finished, and for exploration of how God can use me as I am, where I am. This will be my creative time. My hope is to blog about this. I want to include you through this journey of creative exploration. I am telling you this with the hopes that you will get excited with me, keep me accountable, and be a sound board for me during this new adventure.

So thankful. So blessed. Ready for whatever comes next.

“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” {2 Corinthians 2:14&15}
