consumed

Life can get all consuming really fast.
It's January 1 and we take a step back, make great resolutions,
and are determined to be different.
and by Jan 11, those days seem ages ago

we get back in the swing of life.
of school, of work, of early mornings
and yet again we're caught up, consumed with life.
with just the daily grind.

I won't lie to you, I've had a hard time this January getting back "into it"
whatever "it" is. 
just life.
just work.
i feel my heart consumed with the daily struggle,
and yet my soul is reaching for more.

so, it may be a bit late, but I've got a word for 2012.
consumed


life is crazy.
and I'm guilty of shifting my focus when the crazy happens.
I start looking at the "things"
and stressing
worrying
trying to handle it.

so for this year, I want to keep my eyes on the Creator
and be all consumed with Him.
