Ever tried crossing a bridge over a really deep chasm and someone yells out, “DON’T LOOK DOWN!”? No? Me neither, because that’s stuff for the movies. Although being a movie would be a fun adventure. But, anyway, so I’ve been gone from Tumblr for a bit. Inconsistent posts and long pauses between posts. I’ve said so before I’ve been busy with life in Atlanta and I’m not around internet enough to actually sit down and type my thoughts down, and I’m sorry.
Guess what, I’m back for realsies! We can be friends again! All starting with this post! Exciting right?
The Mason Chronicles 2.0. Now with 205% more GIFs!
So let’s dive right in cool? This is going to be a short post because I am saving up all my writing mojo for next Monday. So I’m spending time doing some research while I have internet. Meaning I’m hanging around Condesa Coffee and using their internet since I still don’t have internet at my house.
Nothing is really new in Atlanta for me, I’ve carved out a nice little life here. I love working for Condesa and I am having a blast getting connected in at Buckhead. But, going back to the movie scene reference at the beginning. Yeah, I’m starting to feel like that.
I’ve started to balance a lot of different things in my life. Life, job, bills, relationships, and pursuing Christ. They all intertwine into my life and they all need attention. I’ve also been dealing with troubles with my car which is starting to stall and not want to go (transmission is starting to slip). Basically a bunch of stuff has been happening and pressuring me, trying to steal my joy in living here in Atlanta. It isn’t the best feeling in the world, but it has caused me to turn and focus harder on Christ. If not out of the knowledge that I need to, at least out of the feeling to need to. The reason for this is because I don’t want to lose myself in the midst of all these troubles. I don’t want to drown under these pressures to pay bills, take care of my vehicle/car/cat, and to loving others in new ways that have me open and vulnerable (More about this last one come Monday).
It’s insane and it’s scary because the last thing I want to happen is something to go wrong where my heart is damaged and I have to bring it to God for repairs because I chose poorly in a life decision. In fact, my stress was about to hit a peak yesterday when my stubborn car decided to blow out a tire and I had to swap it for a spare. I was changing the tire when I (Spoiler: this is going to be cliche) looked up at the sky and saw how beautiful the day was. In that moment I started thinking, you know this would be the perfect moment to realize something about God since the sky is so beautiful, and sure enough I did. I realized just how much I am loved by God. That so many things are happening to me that are causing me to turn to Hid love and strength to keep me together and accomplish His will. How loved I am to have all this stress placed upon me because God is making me stronger in my discipline to stay true to Him. I’m so loved that God decided to ask me to risk all that I have in my life, leave behind all that I have and come to Atlanta to chase a dream He’s leading me on. Because He made me and He made me to be a vessel of honor of His love and His Spirit, and with that I can overcome any trouble as long as I’m obedient to His direction.
It’s pretty awesome, and that is pretty much what has been going on in my life lately. I hope you guys have been doing well, and I’m really happy to be back to talk to you guys.
See you Monday!
