The search for stability is one that we all embark on all the time. Until recently I thought this was what we are supposed to do. However, recent events have lead me to believe that all are training and teaching prepares us to, in the words of John-Logan Coots, "get comfortable being uncomfortable." Stability exists only in our ability to be comfortable with the lack of it.

I have spent my lifetime seeking the approval from my dad and being rejected time and again. I simply wanted him to say he loves me and believes in me.

I want my Dad to know me as Jesus wants us to know and seek him.......I have confused my dad for my Father.....They are in fact different.
Rocks cause ripples that start from the inside out. You are either there from the beginning and experience the whole journey or you start on the outside looking in. Be the rock that causes the ripple.....
Every month I head over to pay for STORAGE. What am I storing? That is the million dollar question. I don't even know what is in there. Every time I go there I leave there flustered and derailed for a moment from my present path.....has this happened to you?
You ever feel like you don't know who you are? You ever feel like you are trying to be who you think you are but are left feeling empty. Knowing who we are is not an easy task. I don't believe I do but here are a few thoughts I have had on where to start to look.
The voices are speaking to me again and they are intense. They will not stop talking about that big meeting next week. You know the one that I botched last year. They remind me of the failure and show me the promise of what can be should I not fail at the next one. They are the voices that are focused on the past and the anticipation of the future, the voices that distract me from now.
