Stay with me, folks. “CHAOTIC”… “CALMNESS”??? Those two words may not go together very well, BUT…”IT ALL MAKES SENSE”… in “JILL’S WORLD”. 🙂 Come along for another ride…
Folks, I am truly “LOVING” the “changes” occurring within’ me. Both spiritually…and physically. Sound “CRAZY”? ABSOLUTELY!!! This is “MY WORLD,” folks. Now, let me try to explain my “crazy” self…First, let’s examine those changes individually, okay?
1) Spiritual changes: Oh, I BELIEVE… and my FAITH is growing… DAILY!!! Now, this is something you can only gain by actually seeking God through Jesus. I cannot explain this process. It is AMAZING. “AMAZING GRACE.” Your Faith grows as you spend time, daily, reading the Bible, praying, and just “thinking” softly to yourself about Him and the word. Perhaps listening to Christian music…whatever you choose to partake in. You will NOT believe the changes that occur within your VERY heart and soul. You can actually “FEEL” God’s immense love for you. It is… AMAZING!!! “AMAZING GRACE!!!” Now, these spiritual changes that occur are gradual, and they are dependent upon the amount of time and attention given to the development of this relationship. YOU choose!!!
Now, the amount of “PEACE” I have gained due to my spiritual growth is immeasurable. Yep, I still “run” around lost, dazed, and confused… ALOT!!! BUT…I feel a sense of “peace and calmness” during this “chaos” that enables me to smile and just “glide” along, knowing that EVERYTHING is in God’s control. And I can then share my calm “chaos” with you all via this blog! 🙂
2) Physical changes. Now, bear with me… AGAIN. I kinda fear that you “may” NOT believe what I am about to say… BUT IT’S THE TRUTH!!! My facial characteristics have been changing. I AM NOT KIDDING, folks!!! Can others “see” these changes? I think so, but I am not sure!!! Take, for example, my nose. It “feels” smaller to me!!! I am totally serious!!! Now, is this somehow related to the Pinocchio story and his nose growing “bigger” with each lie? Hhhmmm…my nose seems…”smaller”? Is there a connection???
My cheeks also feel a bit narrower, perhaps “thinner”? Losing weight? Perhaps, but I am not sure. I will not allow myself to fall into that “trap” of weighing myself daily, EVER AGAIN!!! I have not, however, needed to purchase smaller jeans. So, there you have it!!! I have not lost substantial weight!!!
I am changing, folks. Inside. Outside. Every “side” possible!!! Sorry. Yep, my mind is wandering… AGAIN!!!
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
