Stop living for your LinkedIn life update.
It’s not about that. None of this is about that. No matter if 1,000 people like your “new job” post on Facebook, your hands-in-the-air Insta, your pop of champagne when the job finally’s settled.
The only thing that matters is what He says of us. Are you listening to it?
Have you taken all this messy stuff to His feet? All of it? The good? The really good? The bad? The worst? Have you asked if now is the time to act? Have you asked if now is the time to stop?
There is magic in the shift from a terrified “I don’t know” to an exhilarated one.
When we make a conscious decision to tell our hearts to live with open aired windows and let our experiences shape us as they will...
We are best steered by the guidance of His will when we are already in motion.
Think about it.
Pulling along a cranky, defeated, “ugh”-kinda minded human and delivering them to sanctification and all the good stuff that life has to offer does not sound reasonable to ask of anyone. Why ask it of our God? Of our glorious and magnificently GOOD and gracious God?
Adventuring away - even for a glimpse of a weekend - could not bring me much more joy than it did this particular time. Courtesy of an excuse for anniversary celebrations and our mutual travel bug to experience Southeast cities in ways only we could, my guy and I took to the cobblestone streets for a 36-hour getaway in the charming town of Charleston, South Carolina.
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing and reading and all the storytelling things since I learned as a kid that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
