Classes were supposed to start today; however, it snowed and so therefore I’m curled up in my bed blogging. Part of me is frustrated, feeling like I’ll never get this semester over with (how can you get it over with if you can’t get it started?) Part of me is relieved because I needed time to think, mull, pout (just a little). I came to a realization between last night and this morning. I am not quite as rock hard and tough as I’d once thought. It’s annoying, but probably a much needed realization.
I’ve been working on two writing projects for quite some time now and I am torn about which to finish first. Part of me wants to finish the comedy one (because I do not want to focus on drama and sadness, I do not need to sulk in that.) Unfortunately, now that I am continuing what should be comedic, I am bringing my funk into the project and that is just not okay.
Why the current funk? A ridiculous situation that SHOULDN’T bother me (and hasn’t) but has now decided to slam head first into my thought life for the day. Also, I had a series of dreams last night that included all 10 of the top 10 people on the list of “people I do not want to have dreams about”. Seriously, this is just not cool. Regardless of circumstance(s) though, I am going to try and focus today. God has given me some opportunities to spread his Word and I need to take advantage of this time to plan to soak in his presence, even though everything is trying to distract me from that. No circumstance dance today. Need me to define?
Circumstance Dance: A dance in which your mind flows and partners with your circumstances in order to create a swirl of emotion and turmoil.
And yes, that term/definition is an Ashlin original 😉
I will leave you with this verse today:
1 Thessalonians 5:18
give thanks in ALL circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
