I was driving home last night from life groups (its still hard to call them life groups instead of core groups but I'm gettign there) and I was just so blessed by them. I love my girls so much, they are so awesome and open. I really think some of them are holding back a little (its hard to be brave), but their hearts are so beautiful, and their faces are like sweet angels, I love them so much! I can't believe how blessed I am. And its blowing my mind how much God is using the things I've struggled with to help them... it took me a long time to do life groups, but I think He was really working in me to be brave and it was His perfect timing.
Speaking of holding back... I have this hurdle I'm trying to get over. Have you ever tried to do the hurdles in track? Me, no, but I get the concept. If you do them and you trip, and especially if you 'bite it' its hard to try again because the fear of biting it again is overwhelming. I kind of feel that way. I feel like I'm running right up to it, and then I chicken out because I've 'bit it' before and it hurts, but I am trying to remember that when I do get over it, its going to be glorious.
