A Stirring of the Heart

My head has been swirling with things I’ve been reading and hearing.  Flourish is my word of the year.  Last year it was the word intentional.  I feel like both these words are consuming me.  How can I be intentional with how I’m living my life so that I may flourish?
I know I haven’t quite figured out the answer to that question yet.  However, I do know that I’ve learned a few things along the way…
Life isn’t always easy.
Sometimes I feel so distracted.
There are times, when life just seems so busy.
Sometimes I think…”How can I possibly fit one more thing in?  Is this really the way I want to live?  Am I flourishing? Or is it more along the lines of floundering?”   
I know that I’m a work-in-progress type of girl and God has been stirring something up in my little heart.  I don’t have it all together, nor will I ever, but work is being done.  I don’t yet see the flourishing but I do feel the need to be extremely intentional.  I have to wonder, will my act of living an intentional life lead to me flourishing?
I’ve been talking my friends’ ears off about my deep seeded need to pull back and be more intentional about the things I choose to do and the things I need to let go of right now.  I want to flourish so badly that I can practically taste it, but I know it won’t happen if I don’t make room for it.
Over the next couple of days I’m going to share what I’ve been learning.  Things that are helping me to be intentional, which will hopefully lead to me flourishing.  Thanks for joining me along this journey.  I’m not sure where its going to lead, but I do know that its somewhere God wants me to go because I can’t get it out of my head!
