I am just a gal. One person. I have no super powers. I don’t claim to be able to do everything. Sounds kind of boring huh? No frills, no thrills.
BUT, I am a
fearfully and wonderfully
made human being.
I have talents and abilities that others in my circle may not. They need me. They not only need me, but I in turn need them. They complete me. I know that is usually used in marriage terms, but it’s true in other relationships too.
I believe that all of these people are divine appointments. That means GOD CHOSE THEM FOR ME!!! Every single one of them. Wow!
All those around me are put in my life for a purpose. I admit the purpose is not always noticeable right at first, but it most always surfaces quickly.
I just want to give GOD all the glory for this. I praise Him and thank HIM for helping me through His people! I especially thank Him for His Son!
Lord, YOU complete me.
Thank You Lord!
What do I care …
If someone doesn’t appreciate my need to look on the bright side?
If smiling is not EVERYONE’S favorite thing?
If people think I’m ugly, fat or stupid?
If my art doesn’t please someone?
If my car isn’t nice enough?
My house not big enough?
Or I don’t wear the “in” styles?
What do I care?
So my friend who used to be my boss posted this blog about the ONE WORD. He’s a pretty smart guy and had asked his faculty to send him a word… I will let you go read his blog: PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ HIS BLOG FIRST.
…and watch the ONE WORD video there…
Here’s part of my message I posted to his blog:
You know I can’t narrow my life to one word…THAT WOULD BE TOO SIMPLE! ALTHO–The word that has been repeating itself in my mind over and over for several days now in the face of all kinds of crazy life stuff (nothing bad, just life) is LOVE. I know I love, but do I love like I’m supposed to? Do I ALWAYS love like I’m supposed to? I don’t when I blow up at my kids or feel defeated looking at my laundry which has become like Mount Rushmore (serious, with faces and everything) …
I GOTTA REMEMBER TO LOVE in all circumstances. NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING ON! People may hate on me, children may say my name like a broken record (ha! kids these days don’t even know what “broken record” means) and I might feel stressed by stuff going on around me…BUT LOVE DOESN’T LOSE IT’S COOL…Love shows LOVE. Love creates LOVE. Love shows mercy and grace and brings on comfort and peace.
I want to LOVE like Jesus loves us.
It really is simple.
