In the day to day

For the last year I have been living at home. NOT what I had in mind for my life, but God knows best. Unfortunately for me, I feel like I have wasted so much this year by doing nothing of importance.

I have totally failed in having a consistent quiet time with the Lord. On the rare occasion that I do take the time to be alone with God, I hear pretty much the same message every time. Hmmm, maybe I should take it to heart, huh? Every time the message is plain, and simple: The true test of your heart is when no one is around, and/or you are just doing the day to day. What is your heart like when no one is watching and what is your attitude when it's something you think is ordinary or unimportant?

My attitude this year in my seemingly ordinary life? Well, I feel like I've always been looking for what's next instead of appreciating everything that's right in front of me. Makes on wonder what you've missed in the process of looking ahead instead of around you.

All in all, it has been a good year. Mostly full of the Lord humbling me and teaching me things regardless of my inactive spirit.
Thank you God for being so faithful, even when I'm being selfish.

You are so good.
