 The fun things about this outfit:
Scarf - from Basque Country, Sweater - HandMeDown, Pants - Old Navy (gift), Shoes - Target

Have you ever reached one of those moments when you realize something that you used to be passion-as-all-get-out-about somehow lost some steam along the way? Or at least your focus somehow got blurry for a bit? 
I'm not sure about you, but in the seconds when I come to this astonishing shock I generally feel like I'm a failure - like I've let someone down - and like hope is lost to ever have the fire-in-the-belly I used to have about it.

About four and a half years ago I made a commitment to follow named Jesus.
I had a whole new outlook on life. Some strange new view of hope and joy shone a light on everything. I'm not playin people. I had road rage instantly disappear. (I know that's silly, but it was a silly way that He showed me I had hope.

But let's be real. Life is busy. Life is hectic. Life is distracting from the fire-in-the-belly.
Recently, as I've been spending time reading the Word and spending time with friends having great conversation, I'm realizing I need to stay focused. The burning love I had for Jesus in response to his burning love for me in 2009 should not fade or be back-burnered because I get busy. It should be the motivation and to my business. It should fuel my interactions with others. And it should be factored into why I put what I put on my calendar. 

Do the activities I choose I'm involved in point others to Jesus? 
I mean... I should ask myself that question every day. Because I might love doing this, or love doing that. I might enjoy this person or that friend. I might pat myself on the back or enjoy having someone else pat me on the back. But did I do it because I love Jesus and want Him to shine?

Jesus is better.

Philipians 4:19
And my God will supply every need of yours
according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.


  1. Jesus is worth a passion that doesn't fade, that's for sure! :) But it is all too easy some time to let the small things that keep us busy become the big things of our life, and that's not right.

  2. Love Jesus, Love that scarf, Love you!:-) xoxo
