I feel like everything in life needs more from me.
I need to do more study, more relaxing, more sleeping, more excercise, more praying, more bible reading, more seeking, more loving, more listening, more organising, more practice, more reading, more noting, more drafting more more more more more.
But what if there is no more?
No more time left to give, no more energy.
What if there is no more of me left in the tank, and its only term two!
♫right in this moment, this orders tall♫
The thing is, I know there is.
I know that there is always more of Gods strength, always more TV to not watch, but...
I think it comes down to the fact that i am selfish with myself.
I want to have part of me just for me.
My little slice of control, my claim on myself.
I don't want to be totally sold out, to anything.
Not to school, not to my friends or my family.
Certainly not to my God.
Because that would be risky wouldn't it, risky and scary and would take effort.
Something you should know about me if you haven't already noticed:
I'm pretty much inherently lazy.
Thats why my room is tidy, thats why I procrastinate, thats probably why I'm fat. (and please don't launch into telling me I'm not to, I'm in the slow process of getting less fat so my self esteem is fine [: )
So do I have a conclusion to this rant? (blah, essay structure in the brain)
Well yes, but one that
(take that structure)
I doubt I will actually do, at least not to the extent that it needs doing.
But I need to try...
Or I will just have to get used to this feeling of 'steady digging into the earth' (ARGH)
and learn to enjoy this lovely little hole/grave/tunnel to nowhere I have dug myself.
Oh, and here's a poem I wrote. Read all the lines left to right first, as you would normally. Then go top to bottom with only the words on the left side of the indent. make sense? I hope so :)
LORD I will not stop my search
Test away Father, in your strength
I will prove my choice to
follow you, wherever you will
Whichever corner of this dear globe
you point me to
toward it I will march
I will obey you, dearest LORD
go before me and with me
I will go
willl love, will
live with you,
for you, in
I hope you like it, or at least can read it lol.
