What Are You Becoming?

My 2015:

I left my 20's and entered my 30's.

 I gave away almost everything we owned and my family and I moved across the country.

I left great friends and a familiar life in San Francisco and moved into the unpredictable lifestyle of starting a church in Huntsville, AL.

I became a pastor's wife.

We hosted church in our home almost every Sunday night for six months.

I started this little blog.

I went from having no family around to now having family everywhere. (a good change).

I started going to the gym all the time so I could process my emotions and thoughts about all the changes taking place while someone else watched my kids for an hour.

I ran my first 5k.

I struggled with all of these things and felt like life was all too much at times.

This year had been full of changes. Decisions. Risks.

It has also been a year full of finding joy. Joy through embracing what God has called us to do. Joy in embracing rest in God's peace.

I am still becoming.

I am still becoming who I am.

I am becoming who I am in Christ. And it is very hard some days.

It isn't always easy to do what God asks of us. It usually requires a lot of us. And it doesn't always make a lot of sense at first.

This year has been a year of changes. A year of God asking us to become who He wants us to be.

The changes were difficult. But the changes were for our good.

We are all becoming something.

When we make small decisions, if affects who we become.

The shows we watch. The books we read. The way we spend our free time.

We are all becoming something.

What if this year we all allowed ourselves to become who we are in Christ?

Who are you becoming?
