Fragility of Choice

Beautiful weakness.

Question: If God created us, why didn’t he make us stronger, better, less susceptible to weakness and evil?

Answer (in the form of a question lol): If we can’t be tempted, how can we choose? If everything is easy, is that really a choice?

I think it’s beautiful to be weak. To struggle. To choose good, even though it’s hard. To fight the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12). Even to fall. Because there is grace.

Question: If God created us, why did He have to save us?

Answer (maybe): God gave us a choice so that we may love Him freely and honor Him of our own choosing. Come to Him with freedom. Love Him because we want to. He knew that to give us choice, He would have to make us fragile. Capable of falling. But He gave us Christ because:
1. He loved us
2. He knew we would need help

So. We can stand on Christ alone if we fall. That’s gorgeous.

We are fragile. We are weak. We are beautiful.
We are wonderfully and fearfully made.
We are free. We are loved. We are saved.

314.4

W-T-What???!

I am 314.4 today. YEAH! Whoosh! I can’t believe this. I feel so friggin’ happy right now.

I just had a graphic design interview and it went really well. Came home, weighed myself and I had dropped like 5 lbs. since this morning. Crazy! When it drops, it drops.

I hope you all are doing well today. 🙂 It seems like the sun is just a little brighter. Hopefully for you too!

I took this driving job I currently have to just get by and pay the bills. I don’t really like it. There’s a lot of strange clientele at 3 am on the weekend, even in Venice. So I really hope I can snag this graphic design job. It’s at a college and I think I would be a perfect fit for them.

I was knowledgeable and outgoing. I could answer all of their questions with confidence and experience. So prayers please. If this interview was a board, then I was the hammer that nailed it. LOL

I had a little sign that it was going to be okay right before I walked in. I am bigly into signs. LOL

On the way to Florida (just moved here from KC about a month ago), roadtripping with my daughter down the highway, we kept hearing Ed Sheeran’s Castle On the Hill. It’s an exuberant song with much meaning for me. Floating down the road toward Florida, I just felt so many emotions. Loss, hope, regret, happiness, relief, anxiety, restored health and well-being. A mix of tears and joy. And this song just seemed to sum up everything I was feeling. We heard it over and over, driving for days. But I loved it each time.

Well. This morning, trying to make it to my interview, I was unsure of where I was going and I thought I was running a bit behind. Plus, I had to go to the bathroom and didn’t know if I would have time to pop into a bathroom before my interview. So. I prayed.

Please, God. Let me make it there. Let it be easy to find. Let me have time to break for the bathroom.

And as I was praying, this song came on. I just felt so hopeful at that moment. The song just makes me want to pump my fist out of the car window and let the wind whip my short hair around. With a brave whoop and whistle, I just want to jump around and conquer anything in front of me.

So I found the school just 1-2 minutes after turning. Turned in, found the building, found the room, found the loo 🙂 and nailed my interview. Best interview I’ve ever given possibly.

Thank you, God. Thank you, Ed. Thank you, Universe.

Let your will be done, God. But thank you for a good day. Praise be to your name.

Feel Good

Feel Good today. I always have to listen to this song when I feel good.

I feel good today. And I feel the infinite possibilities of the universe threatening to pull my molecules apart and fling me far into the future. It’s a scary, wonderful feeling that has me at the top of good. Embrace the race.

I hope you feel some good today.

DON’T STOP! GET IT, GET IT! LOL
