Feeling like a failure
So July was supposed to be the month I blogged about "What I believe" for a blog challenge. I started out strong and then....well then, life took over. It is not that I didn't WANT to do the challenge. It is not that I wasn't CAPABLE of doing the challenge. I just I CAN'T do it. I FAILED. No, I am not a failure...but I have failed at following through on this particular task. And here is where I get personal with you. Here is where I admit to being human and having a life outside of jewelry. Here is where you can feel free to click away. Life is tough right now. I am having a hard time staying afloat and keeping focus. So when I start trying to think about "what I believe" the answer is...I don't know. I'm not sure what I believe about lot's of things right now. Yes, I still have my core values....but everything else is quite shaken....and I JUST. DON'T. KNOW. I am clinging to this passage in the Bible - Isaiah 40:28-31...and I LOVE the way it's written in the version called "The Message" it says:
Why would you ever complain, saying,
"God has lost track of me.
He doesn't care what happens to me"?
Don't you know anything? Haven't you been listening?
God doesn't come and go. God lasts.
He's Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath.
And he knows everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don't get tired,
they walk and don't lag behind.Thank you for reading. xoxoxo, lisa
