More is the word God gave me as my focus word for 2014. I think I mentioned hat in other blogs.. and I should go back and look right now.. but frankly I can barely move or type or think.. lol.. because I took the plunge today and fearfully went to my first Spin class at the gym I joined last week. I was so nervous. and i don’t get nervous often. I thought I would die in the middle of that hour.. but I survived. Just not fully functioning yet 🙂
True confession: i also wanted to tell you I went to spin class and survived so I could brag.
ok.. confession over.
I want to be filled with more of God this year. I know this sounds hokey. But true. I want more of Him and less of me.
I am a more kind of girl.
If I drink coffee- I want more.
If I eat chips, I want more. And more and more.
If I take spin class– lol.. I want more of anything but spinning! 🙂
I believe God placed in us the longing for more so that we will look to Him to fill us. To overflow.
Ephesians 3:19 that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
That’s better that upsizing my Mcdonald’s happy meal.
But I realize that often, I can miss the more God has in store for me. Why? Because I can start to look at most everyone else and turn their stories in a must story for me.
Most everyone else is married by 32 so I must find someone.
Most everyone else has a pair of those cute boots so I must have a pair…
You insert your own comparison story.
We look at other’s more and think we must have that.
Being filled to all fullness of God means I recognize that God’s more story He has written just for me is the MOST incredible story.
I don’t want to miss God’s more because I am looking at everyone else’s.
Filled.. to .. all fullness
