show me what im looking for

do you ever have a 'theme' week? I do all the time! and this week is "show me (God) what i am looking for". On monday, i was watching, "my life in ruins" for the first time and this song played in the background during a scene and then today while in line at starbucks, this song played again! This song, "show me what im looking for" by Carolina Liar used to be one of my faves about tres years ago and now it's coming back to me! I've been having a great week so far and I feel good about myself and my life right now. How's your week going?

 I think as humans, we are instilled with curiosity.  we are always searching for something, yearning for something or someone, looking for truths and desiring happiness. In the past, I've looked for validation in all the wrong places. Since I re-dedicated my life to the Lord in 2004 and re-did again and again (because i mess up constantly), I seek validation in my heavenly father. He's the one who knows me best. he's the one who created me. 

he's the one who will never let me down. he's the one i pray to for guidance in my life's direction, for comfort in my times of trial, for clarity when all seems confused, for confirmation in making big decisions. I don't have all the answers and i am kinda glad that i can't tell the future. I seriously take one day at a time, but plan stuff for up to a month [contradictory right?]

hearing this song two times in the past three days has me asking myself now, "what are you looking for brittany?" My answers are pretty personal, but one thing i can mention off the top of my head is: acceptance, pretty general term, but i mean acceptance in myself and in others and also trying not to limit myself because i know i am (we all are) full of beautiful potential! I know I'll never want to stop learning. i'll keep on following God all the days of my life & asking him to show me the way.
