I don’t need recognition or praise from the World…because He says I am enough.
So many opinions and studies and best practices and guidelines and anecdotal evidence and studies and celebrity endorsements…everywhere we turn we are inundated with how to do life RIGHT!!!
Have I been listening? Have I been following Him?? Or have I been going along in my OWN direction??
We all have pain, don’t we? Sadness and loss and failure and struggle and tragedy. Pain is universal and, at some point or another, it happens to all of us. But I’m done believing the universal pain of life is inflicted like a lightning bolt from God for a ‘reason’ and God is somehow teaching me a lesson.
I think the World might be lying. I think the World might be exaggerating and pointing fingers in the wrong directions sometimes and attempting to manipulate us by spreading fear… I think FEAR might be the real evil.
What if we stopped to really realize...really, truly believe...that the way we look is not the best thing any of us have to offer???
Dear Girl...did you know you were made on purpose? With a purpose?
