Snowglobes and me

2:44 PM

I used to be quite a fan of snowglobes. Not really sure why, something about the scenic beauty of the ornate detail, or the magic when the "snow" went swirling. I grew up in Florida, to me, it was magical! My good friend & Watermarkian Ryan Young read us a poem at house church the other night about snowglobes, that's what got me thinking about them again. Snowglobes look good on a shelf, but their true purpose is to be shaken and enjoyed. How often do I as a Christian stay on the shelf? Sit around, look good and do nothing. When God is calling me to a life of being shaken and turned upside down for Him. I wish I could say I am praying for God to shake my world again, but I'm not. Just when I feel like my life got settled, the last thing I want is for things to turn upside down. But I'm pretty sure God is going to do some shaking whether I'm ready for it or not. The family I live with are moving to Michigan. My job is at a constant crossroads dependent on government funding. My heart & passion are pulling me in a new direction that I'm not sure how to approach. I'm being shaken and swirled around right now, and I just hope that I can display the beauty of God as I endure.
