31 days of happiness - day 7

Day 7

Yesterday I found something I had been craving for...well months and months and months. And goodness did I wake up with a weight lifted off my shoulders today! 

Yesterday reading through one of the many wonderful blogs I follow, envious of all these women going out and changing the world - following their dreams...I felt God come into my heart with an overwhelming peace saying "I want you to know me...that's what you need to do right now." How amazing! I had been aimlessly searching for my "calling" and where God needed me in this world and He gave me the exact answer I needed!

It was such an overwhelming feeling that came over me - it was as if He said, "Just be close to me, seek me, find peace with me, I'll show you where I need you when the time is right." It was an amazingly powerful moment. So many prayers answered. I had been praying that God would show me where He needs me most right now and it was right in front of me all along! 

To be honest - I was so obsessed (yikes that's an ugly word!) to find where God needed me, finding my passion, looking for that open door that I didn't spend the time every day searching for Him, trying to know Him, wanting to be close to Him. Be still my heart, be still. 


Daily happiness tip #7: Go for a run! Yesterday I was feeling so behind on my fitness goals and hated that if I had only been adamant about following them back in January I would be a running star now! But I laced up and went for a run and although it showed me I still have a long ways to go - I felt amazing and strong afterwards. Also Jacob went with me and kept me motivated so that was incredible too! Nothing like a cute butt running in front of you to keep you going! 

John 16:33 - "I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on Earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart! Because I have overcome the world."
