You Don't Have the Upper Hand | Insta Tidbit

Posted by Maysen Battles on

We tend to break our own dang hearts when trying to make sense of the meaning behind every event in our life; we overthink, revisit every action, works spoken, emotions felt; all to rewrite it in a different way in hopes of finding out the WHY.

By nature, I'm someone who has to have a sliver of control in any given situation... whatever happens, it has to have rational behind it; and if I have ahold of the situation, then I have a hand in how it plays out; and what a heartbreak of a vice to have in the harsh reality of life; something that, I've come to learn, never announces it's new beginnings nor declares its exits; experiences move swiftly from one thing to the next, often times without a reasoning as to why.. Y'all, this is me. And maybe this is you, too.

As years continue to tick by and I slowly add more life to my lesson books, I've began to praise the idea that God only knows and that's enough reasoning.

Bar none;

Let go and let God; because however something is going to play out.. will play out exactly how it's going to, whether I'm a fool enough to think that I have the stronghold or that God has me in his grip, with my best interest at the forefront always; and that's something I'm forever indebted to and undeserving of. To all of my gals and guys who, like me, have to know the WHY to find peace, John 13:7 baby; "You don't understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.

Fire the Arrow | Insta Tidbit

I'll be straight up- i'm real uninspired to photograph and post images of current work; it doesn't seem relevant right now, because it's not the current reality. Right now, I feel as if the world needs more connection and authenticity, because frankly, we're all rallying in this thing together. I listened to a fabulous sermon last night (Shiloh Ranch Cowboy Church, they have podcasts and Youtube sermons!) about how this pandemic is essentially an open window to fire new arrows through to grow as a human.

To think that something this monumental and soul shaking (Quarantine) doesn't have the power to grow us as a human being is silly. Quarantine is tough; we tend to succumb to just surviving in the pursuit of getting through out.

BUT- lets try to shift our minds to one that's spiritually expectant of the glory that can be had in this time; if you're expectant, you're susceptible to seeing the positive things that are unfolding, too; new found passions, dreams, desires, convictions.

Lets fire those new dreams and convictions through this open window, to concrete them within ourselves, because it won't be open long; when this is all said and done, and this window of time closes, we've had either used this time to try to grow and work towards a better version of us, or missed this opportunity of soul revelationšŸ–¤

God Cannot Steward a Parked Car | Insta Tidbit

"...maybe we're waiting on the permission that it's "OK" to act on our ventures; just know that God certainly can't guide the path of a parked car. I was once the girl that waited and waited; "maybe if I wait, i will have clarity in whatever it is that I want to peruse." PUT YOURSELF IN MOTION."
