I just re-watched this movie a good friend of mine gave me back in high school.
It was definitely helpful to slow things down a bit and just to enjoy the moment.
The past few years, getting caught up in so many things.
I’m glad to be home with family and I get to spend time with them. I’m glad to get to know some amazing people who love Jesus and love his people. I’m glad I’m not in grad school so I can appreciate all of this and stop for a moment before I make any more impulsive and crazy decisions about life.
I’m so glad that God knows me so well that He knew what I needed before I even knew.
I think he’s opened my eyes to see that life is short. It’s all about Him, yes, but He has so much in store for me! It may not be all glamour and what I may want it to be, but I do believe it will be glorious. I love that He cares so intimately about the little things. He knows me so well. So, so well. God is so good.
Watching Elizabethtown was nice because I think we all can somewhat relate to Drew. Going a bajillion miles an hour and we bend inward in our sin that it not only destroys us but the relationships of those around us. Through the death of his father and the life of a Claire, he is puts to death the old life and is given a new one. He sees that striving after the wind is pointless, but rather to live life each moment can be satisfying and glorious.
I really appreciated that. I’m entering a season where big changes may occur. One second I may be in class all day. Another second I may be head deep into a career. The next day I may meet the Mrs. and we will marry and start a new family together. Who knows? Whatever may come, I hope I do not forget that life is all about Jesus and the life he has already planned for me here. I know by His love and sovereignty that I won’t miss out. Not one second.
