Wallowing. As a widow, I’ll admit to having done my share of wallowing.
Wrapping myself in the what-could-have-beens. Rolling around in the what-weres. Refusing to join the what-ares. Escaping from the what-will-bes. With the preferred anesthetics.
You may have wallowed, too. Or you may even be wallowing right now. Our smell-free, guilty secret. The justified indignation festering inside. You may have a bright, shiny persona that you put on for the world. But in private, you are prone to wallow.
Guess what. This doesn’t have to be a permanent condition or even a preferred choice. God is calling and calling you out right now. His plans for you are so much bigger than the pseudo-safety of a mental muddle.
You’re still here.
You’re still needed by God.
So here’s the call: Be more. More than you are right now. More than you think you can be. More than the world says you are. More than your mom and dad ever dreamed you could be.
More than the color of your hair, the size of your clothes, or the amount of money in your bank accounts.
Start seeking your more.
My more is to be more than a widow. It only took me 11 years to agree with God on that plan!
That may be your more, too.
Let’s find and explore our more together. I love adventures! How about you?
“May God give you more and more mercy, peace, and love” (Jude 2).
