Afternoon Thoughts

With less than 24 hours before vacation we are soaking up the spring like temps with open windows, fresh breeze, golf, and laundry.

Feeling overwhelmed with blessings in this moment which unfortunately hasn’t been the norm as of late. 

To be honest, lately, through social media (and the nature of being a woman) I have been comparing myself to others and through that have convinced myself that I am inadequate, not enough. Raise your hand if you know how that feels.

Funny how the Internet – something intangible and so easily manipulated – can affect my self worth so much.

While looking through the lens of my phone and into other people’s lives I lose focus on the life that is right in front of me. The immense amount of blessing in my life through the highs and the lows gets forgotten.

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not see it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19

This is the cover of our church’s newsletter this month.

I don’t want to miss what God is doing in my life because I am lost in the FOMO that is “social media,” so today, I am counting my blessings and being reminded that God is doing a new thing in my life and yes, Lord, I want to see it.

Happy day!

Love, The Jaderstons
