A Little Get Up and Go!

Once again, greetings from the land of GO! I have found that since January 1, I am less likely to procrastinate and instead, just go.  Today it was go clean out the fridge, go vacuum, and go park my butt in front of my computer and get lots of work done. I think I'm bumping up against a wall here, a place I made excuses as to why I couldn't get things done. And sometimes, when we bump up against something, we find that it moves out of our way so we can go.

I found this post I wrote back in July of 2009 about reaching our limits. I'm still afraid of heights, but the truth in the post still works...


Sometimes I say something smart that takes me by surprise. It happened today. I was going in someone's tree house with Justin because he was afraid to go alone. It wasn't very high, but I forgot that apparently heights aren't my thing. I was making small talk with the other mom, trying not to hurl, and I said "I never know my limitations until I bump up against them." Ok, so I know the good thought didn't originate with me. God put it in my heart and on my tongue before it entered my brain.

The deeper thought there, though, is if we never bump up against our limits, how do we know where they are? Why stick with status quo when we were built for so much more?
