Aaron’s inspirational word this week is mountains.
Super exciting news for today! Today is Day 100 of my 100-Days of spiritual re-connection!
The task that I set out for myself was a huge mountain to conquer. When I started this journey on May 22nd, it was with the realization that I had never in my life made God the center of anything. Legit.
Sure I would go to church and I was part of a small group bible study, and I knew all the right things to say and how to act, and when I was in trouble I would pray, but there was no part of my life that I really trusted in God at all. It was all on the surface and because I was so good at putting up this charade of living “a good Christian life” I allowed my private personal life that no one saw to get to a place where I am really ashamed to say that it went.
And over the last few years, it’s been a really great desire for me to have a good relationship that is leading towards marriage and a family and I knew that in order to have that, and other successes in my life, I needed to make some major changes.
It was overwhelming and daunting when I started. 100-days didn’t really seem like all that much when I started but by the end of week one, I was like “ummm how am I only on day 7? It’s got to be a whole month already!?”
There were some major things that I had to conquer. To overcome and take out of my life. These really did feel like mountains in my life. I didn’t think I would be able to break the habits and fight the temptations of them. But I am so proud of myself for doing it and getting here!
I recently got spotify (late to the party, I know) and have been listening to it instead of my own music while I’m out, and specifically this weekend when I’m driving. I have found some worship playlists that I am loving at the moment, and it’s so true that when you listen to/watch play such a huge part in your overall person!
The one playlist I am listening to recently, has this song, and the chorus goes:
When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You
It’s such an amazing chorus and I have learned it and sing it out when I’m in the car and it gets stuck in my head all day long – because if the last 100 days have taught me anything, it’s that I need to continue to put God first and trust in him!
