"I would be happy when..."

Ever have those days where you just feel "blah." Well, actually these past few months have been that way for me. I think when it happens for me I feel like I am failing in every area of my life. My personal red flag is when I have no patience for the ones I love and even less for the ones who I don't...;( Being sooo honest there.

I am sick of people who think they are the only ones that live on the Earth. I look around and I see so much sadness. Part of me wants so badly to just block it out but the other part of me wants to be there for the ones hurting. Does that make sense? Some times I wish I was one of those people who are wired to just forget about it if it doesn't involve them closely and move on. But I can't...I just can't, that's not me.

The Lord has been speaking to me a lot lately. On multiple occasions I have heard or read the words "I would be when..." You know what I am talking about!?!? The famous "if I could just have this, or if I could just drive this, or move here, or make this much money, etc."

I am so blessed to have a mother that I can talk to about my struggles, my heartache, day to day life. After talking with her I always feel fresh and renewed. I pray I can be there in that way for Sloane, as well as Wyatt someday. This morning when checking my e-mail Pastor Steve Smith from Your Voice of sent an e-mail that read this:

"I'll Be Happy When..."
This sentence can and has been completed with more scenarios than probably any other sentence. The problem with it though it is seeking something external to provide lasting happiness.
I'll be happy when, is never a win! Dead ends and multiple disappointments usually accompany it. Rescue yourself today..."
I needed to hear that. I am stuck in the multiple disappointments right now. Are you stuck there as well? I pray if you are that you take a second, take my mom's advice and do this:

  1. Love this! I've been feeling this way too about certain things on my life, it's good reminder to take time to be intentionally happy right now.


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
