All figured out

"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming..." ~ Dori from "Finding Nemo"

"Life's not a race to see who get's there first, just keep going." ~Dad

"You have 60 more years of your life! You don't have to have it all figured out by the time you're 18." ~ My sister Amy

Life is a journey and there's never an end! I'm so goofy and get discouraged when things don't get any easier, but you know what? Life could be a *lot* harder!

I think that I should be farther along in my photography business. I think I should be much less selfish. I think I should be more mature. I think I should have a lot more faith, etc. etc. ect. 

But we're called to "fight the good fight." Always. And fighting's *never* easy. We're called to see the Lord. We're called to pursue righteousness. To "work out our salvation". All things that are *still* happening. Present tense. 

I get so impatient and think that things should be done and over. I've fought for a while, ok, now it should be enough. But life will *always* be a fight, and changing my perspective on it made things a lot more clear.

So. I guess I've got life all figured out. ;)

Seek the Lord.

Pursue righteousness and a pure heart.

Obey what He's telling you.

Fight the good fight. (always) 

And love others.

The End =) 

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.... Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God."
~Matthew 5:6 and 8


  1. and it's so easy, right? instructions are simple, but is fighting ever easy?

    so...yes, girl! I love this; thanks for sharing! and your sister's quote is awesome. though we're not promised tomorrow, her quote still cracks me up. =)

    love you!

  2. yep yep. I get so stressed out and worry about the things that I haven't gotten figured out :) and like my sister also says... if you were going to die tomorrow, you wouldn't have to worry about figuring it out ;)

    love *you* ruth ann!
