I don't know about you, but sometimes I do forget how special I am.
I focus on the bad and the ick and the extra weight around my middle, and,
I notice when I am walking my dog, or out in the grocery store, I hang my head when passing
others. I am ashamed of how I look. No, I am not the 100 lb skinny minnie who modeled
and did things when I was 18 years old. I am a 35 year old mom of two children.
I have come to realize that I am actually NOT doing what God wants me to do.
He doesn't want me to hide. He want's me to shine.
He created me (all of us) special and wonderfully and purposefully.
He has a job for us to do RIGHT NOW and no matter what flaws we see in the mirror,
HE doesn't! He sees the perfect woman He created for a perfect plan and purpose.
We are called according to His purpose, in His timing, in His will.
He is in control and He knows what is best for us.
Instead of hiding or hanging our heads in shame, we should be JOYFUL,
HAPPY, BRIGHT AND SHINING Beacons drawing others in to see how
wonderful HIS love is and can be. We are children of a KING!!!
So shake off those ugly feelings, get the words out of your head,
know that God took great care in creating YOU and he has a plan for you.
I was skimming around Splitcoaststampers again the other day and found their
challenge forum. I have always been intimidated to enter challenges there, I have no idea why.
I stumbled across the 'Try a new technique' challenge and thought, well, why not?!?
Their most current challenge is to create a Building Block Card.
Yes, I created another 'out of my comfort zone' project over the course of a weeks time. ;)
