Robbing Today In Anticipation Of Tomorrow

Looking to the tomorrow's dreams and all the secrets that they hold,
Patiently waiting for these days.
And when I look into the sky I see that hope is coming soon,
Praying love will come again.
- delirious? 'what is this thing called love'

is fitting that this blog's title has been amended to "rest in the Lord" and "wait patiently for Him." this is a season of a lot of waiting. pondering. wondering.

there's a way that a season of anticipation can kill the joy of the present. maybe you're so excited about something down the line that you're missing out on something really cool in the right here and now. you're focused on what's going to happen, what may happen, what could happen, that *poof*

i feel like i'm learning how to live in full anticipation of the future yet not let the disappointment of the 'not yet' suck the life of what's happening before my eyes. i'm not yet ____, but i am ____!

part of that is not letting hope die b/c of impatience. sometimes its just easier to think something won't ever happen than to think of the possibilities of it potentially happening.

What is this thing called love?
I know I've found it; It's in Your eyes.

  2. yeah i echo this post.
    i once read this article that talked about the difference between our perception of time and God's perception of time.. and how the idea of the eternal doesn't mean infinite linearity but the everlasting "now."
    and the writer was saying how because of that, we should also learn how to live fully in the present.

    I think i struggle with that a LOT, in fact..having more to do with fear, i guess. Living in hypotheticals and letting myself be bound by the fear of something that could happen.

    For some reason I thought you never updated your blogger. Good to know that you do, though =)
