Hand grenade.

Oh, to be young
It sounds like so much fun
Oh, the long wait
For things to happen, expectancy
And you, just waiting on me
I wanna know what's in your plans

If you're an ocean
Then I wanna jump right in
If you're a hand grenade
Then I'll pull the pin
I'll wait right here, all night for you
To let me in and I'll run run run run
Run right back to you, I'll run

Life's moving faster now
I'm older here
But younger somehow
Head full of fear
And it makes me break
Please let me find you
Please let me know
Just what you want
Please let me see
What you need me to be

Oh, if you could see in me
You might be kinda scared
Oh, if you could just believe
You'll take me anywhere

-The Almost

Our walk with God is not meant to be this easy path that we follow. It is meant to be full of hardships & struggles because without those moments, we can not grow. We need to be stretched so that we can continue to morph more & more into the image of Christ that we were created to be.
In the stage of life that I have found myself in lately, I've been really taking steps back to reflect who I've been, who I currently am & use all that information to decide who I want to become. The key is not to only include myself in that decision, but ultimately taking that to the Lord & asking Him to reveal to me who He wants me to be.
There is a certain scripture that I've been reflecting on lately.

Psalm 37:4
Delight yourself in the Lord,
and He will give you the desires of your heart.

I used to think this verse somehow meant, Oh the Lord is going to give me whatever I desire/want...Then I woke up. Haha.
But now, when I think about it I feel that it is saying delight in God; surrender everything to Him, & He is the one that knows our hearts better than we do, & He ultimately knows what's best for us. So, when we delight in Him, He will give us those desires, that we may not even see.
I don't know if I am making any sense here. I hope you all understood that.

That's all for now.
Hope you are all well. I don't even think anyone reads this but hey, if there is someone out there, radical, if not, it is just a place for me to write out my thoughts. :] win-win.

Keep fighting the good fight.
