just drop everything now
because while you are sitting
you are overanalyzing
every single thing – every eyelash on your cheek
every spot of sun on your bed
through your window sill
every message that pops up on your phone screen
every worry in your mind
every craving of your soul
you long for something more
while you sit and adore
all the people you wish you could be
all the things you wish you could see
but let us not forget that while we own materials
they do not own us.
while we long for places we’ve never been to
we’ve been somewhere deeper -
more glorious, more beautiful.
can we not live such simple lives and
still live fully?
throw away the bucket list.
just drop everything now -
all your worries, all your ambitions
you will be fine, in your small town life,
in your small town home
where everyone around has big hearts
and certainly big minds.
do you need more?!
you’ve been given more than you need!
we have a God of abundance
yet our eyes are weak, they fail to see what
surrounds us all.
a creation we can never form good enough words to describe.
search for your gratitude
and you’ll find happiness.
thanksgiving daily is the key to life
not a life where you are just breathing and moving
but a life where you are experiencing a glimpse of heaven -
right then and there.
keep working for your salvation,
but realize -
heaven is right here.
