Not that much in life really matters.
Not that much in life is worth worrying about.
But this I know:
And life encompasses all creatures and nature.
And love encompasses peace and mercy and courage and kindness.
And God encompasses
All of the above.
Perhaps this is not my most well-written post. It is almost 1am and I have several classes tomorrow, but I felt my thoughts were formulated enough to be worth sharing. As I get to the half point in this semester, I am reminded of stress. Stress. Expectations. Unhealthy societal patterns, etc. etc. I struggle to balance my time between nurturing my relationship with Christ, nurturing grades in school. nurturing my human relationships, nurturing my resume… And I find myself asking over and over,
” what really matters?”
Now do not worry, I am absolutely safe and in a healthy mindset. I am aware that God has blessed me richly. I do not like feeling like I must choose between God and the rest of the world/society, but I know that out of this challenge God will produce something beautiful.
Walking a road of questions with the light of the Lord will bear fruit.
And if that wasn’t enough food for thought, here is a lovely related quote:
