"When a woman has a kingdom heart, she has an active understanding of what matters most to the heart of God. She lives in the balance of passion and contentment. She learns to love well, give without regard to self, and forgive without hesitation. The woman with a kingdom heart may have a duffel bag full of possessions or enough treasures to fill a mansion, but she has learned to hold them with an open hand. Hold everything with open hands. I don't think we are ever allowed to grab hold of anything or anyone as though they matter more than the kingdom of heaven. When you hold relationships with open hands, then people come in and out of your life as gifts of grace to be cherished and enjoyed, not objects to be owned and manipulated. And then when you hold your dreams with open hands, you get to watch God resurrect what seemed dead and multiply what seemed small."
OK Bloggie Friends, are you ready for this... this is like a I heard this from my friends mother's dentist kind of post...
I happened along a blog after reading this blog where she was guest posting I liked her post so much I decided to keep reading and hopped on over to her blog...
From there I read a guest post from Casey who I really need to start following because this is not the first time I've read her stuff and loved it.
So Casey is the source of the little bit of truth up top. I didn't think I needed that today, but turns out as I meditate on it, I do.
I've struggled lately. I'm impatient, I want us to be in the house of our dreams, I want to have the physique of the other ladies i see at the gym every day, I want to plan weddings -- like for real plan them, not just as a side thing, I want 500 followers, I want I want I want...
Each of these things I hold so tightly sometimes I think I might strangle them right out of reach. Thank you Casey, you reminded me today that I need to let them go. If they are God's desires they will happen in due time. If they are not HIS, then HE has something better in store anyway.
Now... If I could just listen to myself.
And that bloggie friends is my Bit of Truth for today.
