1. This is so amazing, Sandy. I love the quote by CS Lewis — it really spoke to my heart and brought a sense of calm to by spirit, that is currently in hyper-drive.

  2. "My perfectionist tendencies are on overdrive, analyzing my prayer life, my sleep habits and my diet. The irony being that intense self-examination only brings my imperfections into greater focus. And there is nothing quite as unattractive as a person who is hyper-focused on her imperfections. I'm getting on my own nerves."

    Oh my gosh. I can so relate. Beautifully written. Thanks for sharing.

  3. It's like you're inside my head again. Goodness, it's noisy in here, isn't it?!?!?

    Yes, I know EXACTLY what you mean. And I've been thinking/feeling all these things the past couple of months but didn't know how to express them – and I end up feeling guilty or ungrateful for what I have and wondering what's wrong with me. This is a great perspective!
    Thanks for letting God use you to speak to others!

  4. I was gonna write this this morning but I got interrupted.
    I'd sacrifice a laundry system or fresh veggies to sit on your couch and let the kids run wild while we drank some good coffee. I so get you. xoxo

  5. Amen, Sister! You nailed it! Thanks for sharing. I wish I had been able to read that this last spring. You were able to put into words some of what I was feeling without quite realizing it at the time. I love C.S. Lewis. I REALLY love when God sends you the same message in different ways just to make sure we get it.

  6. I wrote something similar in my journal last year…to the effect that what it is I ultimately long for will not be found in this life. I think God designed this life to be like that on purpose. If we got too comfortable here, we would not press into Him and know intimacy with Him. He wants to be the one to fulfill our deepest longings.

    (((hugs))) and blessings to you!

  7. me too. I have missed u – I really get this blog! You put into words what I can't seem to understand myself!! Which is even MORE frustrating — that I can't seem to express or understand what I wish OTHERS would understand 🙂

    I praise Him with you that we are not satisfied here. many times I'll doubt it and think I'm just going through depression.. but then I'm reminded of the things you wrote here – I am not designed to be satisfied here. I thank God He loves me enough to allow me that thirst that is meant for HIM to satisfy. I hope He never takes it away. seems twisted but it's true.

    I have come across many other women who are so perfectly content and satisfied in their housekeeping or whatever else and I just think wow… I am so different – designed in a different way. And then I feel bad for them for settling for the crumbs when the feast is in our future! I am thankful that He doesn't let me settle and that He helps me long for HIM.

    Blessings 🙂
