BIBPC 7 (Surprise!)

I’ve been chasing.

Some girls might struggle with chasing boys. Some might struggle with chasing self-worth. Some might struggle with chasing their friends.

Me?

Hah.

I struggle with chasing my dreams. I hold onto them with an iron fist, daring anyone to try to loosen my grip.

And God looks at me, and says, “Just watch.”

He doesn’t rip the dreams out harshly, or smash my little hands like He could. He doesn’t hit me when I struggle, like some people would. Instead, He loosen’s my hands slowly, and listens when I pitch a fit like a two-year-old.

He listens as I scream into my pillow late at night. He listens when I let the tears roll, and my rabbit lick them away. He’s there when all the pain has faded, and numbness is in its place.

He’s there.

He watches as I struggle to accept change. He watches as I cross my arms and toss my head, swearing I won’t give in. I won’t allow this to happen, because it’ll change everything.

And He waits, watching me slowly dry my tears and jut out my chin, telling myself that I’ll survive.

I’m tougher than change.

Not because of who I am. But of Who is in me.

Because God’s not only there, He’s sustaining me. He’s the one that whispers in my ear the verses of Scripture, reminding me that regardless of what changes, He never changes. It is He who wipes the tears from our eyes. It’s He that bore our sins and transgressions. Because of Him I won’t grow weary, but instead will soar as if on wings of an eagle.

Stop chasing.

And wait. Wait for it to come to you. And while you wait, deepen your relationship with your Heavenly Father, and you’ll never regret the time you spend resting instead of running.

BIBPC 7, Category 2

I am going to be posting wayyyyy too often this week, but I can’t seem to get everything scheduled properly, and it’s just one of those weeks, y’all. 

Time for the second picture for BIBPC 7, and the topic is fast.

But like typical Amie, I procrastinated, thinking I would find something interesting eventually for fast. Thirty minutes ago I remembered the challenge, and had a mini panic attack, because like, ummmm, I’M FAILING WINTER.

Because it’s raining, I was trying to think up something quick, but something that would also make sense. And so this picture was what I came up with.

What is the weather like where you live? What picture would you have taken for fast?

Be Inspired (BIBPC 7)

I have spent the day, squirreled away practicing music and playing board games with friends, and now I sit at my desk (Aka the end of the kitchen table), and write this post.

Now, it tisn’t to be a very long post, just short, sweet, and to the point. It is the seventh day of January, and we have all had a week to work on ourselves, and whatever else we have decided to improve.

I do find it interesting, that once you start looking for answers, you find so many. In the past seven days, I feel as if I have learned more than in the past month. Good creative impute and sermons can do that for you, can’t they?

I think part of the reason a lot of us loose our creativity is because we don’t do the hard search to find things that will restore it, whether that be an underground coffeeshop, or a Sunday school lesson on forgiveness. So go, search and find things that inspire you to do better things, instead of mediocre inspiration that leaves you content with how you are.

AND NOW.

I will show you the picture of something unnoticed. But first, let me set the scene.

In the busy, downtown part of a well-known city in the South, there is an underground coffee shop full of students and professors. As one such girl sat at a couch, she was searching for something unnoticed that started with a d.

Well, on to the picture of something unnoticed!

But first, let me set the stage.

In the downtown of a pretty well-known city in the South, there is an underground coffee shop, where students and professors mill around. A girl was sitting on a couch, and right before she left, she glanced towards the left hand corner, and was stuck by the beauty of a window.

I’m unsure if this counts for d, because it does show a drink…but hey, it was pretty and unique, so I decided to go with it. 😉

I shall be seeing you folks Saturday. *tips hat*
