we're halfway there, but are we?

I'm half way through a month long commitment to blog every day, 31 days straight, for the month of October with all posts revolving around the idea of Wild and Free. 
Here's a quick recap of what I've covered so far. 

We've talked about heavy stuff, light stuff, community, and worship. 
And I feel like the Lord is doing good work in my heart and I'm genuinely loving blogging every day. But I wanted to be really honest and open about a few things. 

It's not always that tidy up in my heart. 

A few days back, I'm not even sure on what post - a blog reader lovingly said something along the lines of, "this wild and free idea is good, but you know it takes longer than 30 days, right?". When I first read the comment, truthfully I was a little bummed. I actually wasn't keeping that in mind. I was really sensing the ability for wild freedom and wanting to rush right to it and right through it. But maybe you can't rush it. 

So we're halfway through and I'd like to say, in all honesty, we may be halfway through with the month, but this will be a long road for me. There are many places in my life and whole sections of my heart where I have lived for so long, so scared and so convoluted, that feel really far from wild and free. I can picture it. I can write about it. I can speak it to others. But when it comes down to it, for me, it takes day after day after day of putting my eyes back on Jesus and asking Him to heal the broken bits. In His mercy and by His grace and for His glory. 

So here's to moving forward. Another day. Another step. 
Here's to wild and free.
