Same Old Same Old

It really have been a while since I have sat down and blogged. Maybe it's because I am busy or I just dont feel like I have anything of value to say these days. 

Truth be told it's most likely because I am lazy. I have found that since being home from Czech
{goodness has my heart has been missing it a ton lately} 
I have been battling laziness. I use to be really disciplined in a large amount of areas in my life. Now I just have NO desire. It is really frustrating. I know that God has not created me to sit around and be some lazy bump on a log. I know he has designed me to do SO much more. 

I was sitting with a friend in the kitchen this morning. We started talking about our passions, what our purpose is in life, how we want to get there. 
{Purpose, Passions, Pursuit}
It was such a motivating conversation. One that I haven't been able to get our of my head all day. It was one of those conversation that I am sure God used to push my butt into gear and stop being lazy. I find that it is so easy to sit around and "wait for life to start". You ever hear that one before? Well guess what?! Life started that day you were born. What am I doing with my life right now? The
same old, same old" is what I find I am telling people. I feel like I am stuck that I am sitting around waiting. That my time here is being wasted when I could be doing other things. This leads me to be unmotivated, undisciplined and lazy. The  answer " the same old same old" just isn't cutting it for me anymore. Why? Because I don't want to me doing the "same old same old". I dont want to sit around and wait for life to happen. I don't want to sit around and waste what God has given me.

God sent Jesus here to this earth. The Earth that he so specifically created so his Son could come to it and die on the cross for the sins of the world. My God is a God who is specific and He WASTE NOTHING!  He isn't wasting my time here. He loves me too much to waste my time. So in the answer of "same old same old" I am convicted that these days may seem monotonous and routine. But what I am doing with them to bring glory and honor to the Lord? 

What are you doing with your day to day life, in the "same old same old", that is bring glory to God. He isn't wasting our time in these days. He loves us TOO MUCH!

That conversation in the kitchen stirred all this. Me back into blogging, pursuing that things I was designed for so I can bring glory to the Lord in the "same old same old".
