Am I living it right??

This video clip really resonated with me so I chose to post it here. These are a lot of the same thoughts that I've been wrestling with a lot lately (Okay, so really most of my life, but the Christmas season really amplifies my confusion and turmoil in these matters of the heart). Some of these thoughts milling around in my head ... How to live in to God's vision for my life, however counter-cultural that might be. How to strengthen my ability to walk forward in faithfulness and not fear. How to give myself some of the grace, I'm so willing to give others. And the list goes on and on ...
In the middle of these late night 'analysis paralysis' episodes, I always hear John Mayer's voice singing in my ear "Am I livin' it right?" from his Why Georgia Why single. So, WHY Georgia WHY?? 'Cuz that's what I ask myself a lot these days and I'm getting answers of sorts, but they're slow and sneaky in their coming. They arrive from unexpected, surprising people and places and oftentimes seemingly convoluted little snippets of conversation and acts of grace and kindness. They manifest themselves as glimmers of clarity and connection that I recognize have this other-worldly quality about them and I immediately know they are so much more than the 'everyday' jingle jangle. I have so much gratitude for all of those moments God gave me in 2008 and I have a grand hope for many, many more in 2009. HAPPY, HAPPY NEW YEAR to each and every one!!!
