I spent a majority of my weekend in spiritual bootcamp. The women's conference we had at our church was quite amazing and more enlightening to some things in my life. I was jotting down ideas to put into action soon...and also got another idea for something a little more wild & crazee that may come into play also very soon. I've only told 4 people what that is - and if you don't know...you soon will. :)
I spent a LOT of time the last 5 years serving at my church and in February I cut the last tie to my servanthood there. It feels weird to be in this place of not really serving all the time, but always there when someone needs me. I don't have a defined "title" and I don't have a section where I serve, but I'm here to serve whenever I'm needed. However, what I have found is that I'm still serving God with every day I live. It doesn't matter where...I'm still seeking after him and loving on people and leaving them better off than when i found them.
I also spent part of my weekend surrendering all that I love or dreams that I have right back to God. I know that when I let those things consume me, I'm far from him. I want to be closer. The job & mission will still get done, but I don't want that to drive me every day. I want his voice to drive me...so that i make decisions based on what He says v. what I think I should do. I found I got very tired of this. Itz so easy to get burned out from our own personal drives...that we forget who should really be driving the car. :)
Sunday turned out to be gloriously fun & amazing. I just had fun kicking it with senior twins who were cheerleaders. They were fun, beautiful and definitely loved the camera. I love it when that happens. :)
After that shoot, I headed to our photo group in Garland and I gave all the reigns to Catoe this time around to just let her toss together anything & everything she wanted and we jumped in. 2 belly dancers came out to have some fun with us...and I tried some new things I hadn't done since mexico. Itz just one of those things. I'm an artist. I get bored with the same ol. I'm looking to push into the new...and try things. :)
These past few weeks have just been a story unfolding of a girl with dreams....these few weeks ahead are going to be fun, challenging and worth every drop of sacrifice that I need to give in order to be all I can be. One thing i don't wanna be a human-doing rather than a human-being. May God help me see the difference...and help me to STOP when I get out of control!!! :)
Have a super week everyone!!!!
from the life of a seeker, believer, dreamer.
