Currently listening to Hillsong United. It’s pretty calming and freeing to listen of how we are freed through Jesus, and it’s pretty calming LETTING IT ALL OUT. To wonderful strangers, no-less. Somehow tapping a few letters on a keyboard and seeing them pop up on the screen, is calming.
I feel like the protagonist from Chocolat, a charming film starring beautiful Juliette Binoche and well-known Johnny Depp. When she feels it’s time and the winds-a-changing, she moves on to the next place, the next village, town, wherever. WHERE DOES SHE BELONG? She doesn’t seem to know. Where do WE belong?
Well, sometimes it’s difficult to know. Maybe we don’t need to know. Or feel like we belong. Anyway. Anywhere.
Yet we grow attached to places. To people. To things. And then once we leave a place, that place will always hold connotations of past memories and people.
I think Jefferson Bethke, Christian American author, writes how God dwells in us? Need to check this fact and how he words it… GOD is our dwelling place.
So maybe I shouldn’t be umming and aahhing about whether or not I belong here, there or anywhere. Because in fact, I belong to God. TO HIM. And He dwells in me.
Yet, it’s easy to write this on paper. But to live out Truth is more difficult. At least I find it is.
LIFE FEELS SO CONFUSING SOMETIMES. Sorry, capitals are a bit in-your-face sometimes, aren’t they!
I wrote a while ago about needing a new dream. (Haha, trying to sound poetic).
Well I feel like maybe now is ze time to move on from my current position in work…To start a new chapter?
It’s just 4 years in similar professions without much motivation and confidence of a future in the role… it’s quite an achievement wouldn’t you say!
Well I’m off to eat stir-fry and think further about my life…
Enjoy yours…there’s always the little things 🙂
