Everything I Love about EVERYTHING

I’ve been reading a fabulous book by Mary Demuth.

Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus

I don’t even know where to begin to tell you how impactful and timely this book has been for me.

I scribbled on nearly every page as I saw something of myself in each story.

I took copious notes asking myself some tough questions.

I love everything about Everything.

Fellow Everything booklaunch team members have also shared the impact of this book on their lives.

Here’s a cool photo Renee Ann Smith created on Pinterest.

Truly, Everything is a life-changing book.

I’ve lived in the Great Yesterday most of my life, constantly looking back, so much so that my spiritual neck has whiplash. Quote by Author, Mary DeMuth

I should have written that line for myself.

I admit that I’ve been one to spend too much time looking back. (Maybe that explains my years of physical therapy on my neck!)

Too much reliving (and often regretting) my past.

So much thinking of yesterday that I miss out on today.

Too many “what if’s” and not enough “what next.”

I don’t want to look back. I want to live in the now.

I look forward to my future with great expectations of goodness–for my marriage and family, and my career.

Do I really need to figure out why things happened the way they did?

Or am I ready to just settle into the wonderful life God has given me.

It is time to remember God chose me for such a time as this. To live in this now.

To be married to Steve Murfitt.

To be mom to Zane and Gabe and mother-in-law to Kelsey.

To be “Nana” to the new babygirl due to arrive any day.

To be an author and speaker willing to share how Jesus is….My Everything.

This is all part of the plan for me all along.

God is rebuilding me and putting together the broken pieces of my life.

To make a new mosaic from my story that will shine for His glory.

To write a new book to draw people to Jesus.

Let’s make a deal and stop looking back.

God has so much planned for our today. And even more for our future.

God Bless you my sweet friend. I love EVERYTHING about you.
