Willing

I think I am getting overwhelmed by my life. My life is not boring. I walked really slowly along the pier tonight and told God how thankful I was that my life was not boring. How glad I was He is asking me to do things that eliminate boredom from my future, too. I always wanted to live life out on the edge. I keep discovering the edge is edgier than I thought.

Today I came to the realization of just how controversial the book I have written is. I suppose if it is published on a good platform, I shall never have another boring moment. Part of me wants to shrink back in fear. Part of me wants to embrace the conversation with enthusiasm. (That is the smallest part.) Another part of me wants to accept my “fate” with quiet resignation.

On Monday God seemed to just drop a quote into my life. “Passion = the degree of difficulty we are willing to endure to accomplish the goal.” Louie Giglio. I have thought it very appropriate for this time in my life. I do not have to jump up and down in excitement. My face does not have to glow with unbridled enthusiasm as I rattle endlessly about my endeavors. I can just be quietly determined as I face the difficulties. It is very comforting. All I have to do is be willing to continually face adversity. I already do that.

I am still having trouble with this new girl. I do not know if I like her. Her new thing is to stutter or stammer, whichever it is, when she talks. Sigh, but man, I don’t want to crawl back into my shell!

But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; – Isaiah 43:1-3
