Who You Are

Beautiful. Kind. Brave. Confident. Attractive. Successful. Happy. Healthy. Joyful. Encouraging. Worthy. Loved. Handsome. Fit. Fulfilled. Positive. Secure. Respected. Nurtured. Articulate. Desirable. Blessed. Which of these adjectives do you use to describe yourself? Social media and some people around us have created an atmosphere where we don’t see many positive things about ourselves. Many of us constantly compare ourselves to others and ultimately resolve that we are not and cannot be many of those things.  Be assured, that such thinking is a false reality.

“Let the King be enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your Lord.” - Psalm 45:11
We have already been given the resources to be all of those adjectives listed. The issue we often face is that we don’t believe those things for ourselves, so we spend much of our time pretending to be something or someone which we are not. What’s worse is that we spend too much time pretending to be something we are not meant to be. We have the complete ability to enthrall God. God knows our every thought. He sees our every action (those done in public and those done in private). He hears our every word. With those things, we have the ability to captivate His heart and attention.

Note that He is enthralled by both our internal and external beauty.  What we allow to enter our minds, bodies, and souls will naturally become a part of our exterior. So we need to be wise in the things that we partake in and the people we allow to enter our lives. It’s in this wise decision making that we honor Him. When we allow God to sit as our foundation, we honor Him. When we choose to follow after God and to embrace His perception of us instead of the world’s perception of us, we honor God.
To create balance in our lives and to move forward and to be the princes and princesses that we were created to be, we need to let go of our insecurities and be constantly reminded of how precious we are in the sight of God. We need to embrace ourselves the way God sees us. We are beautiful, kind, brave, confident, attractive, successful, happy, healthy, joyful, encouraging, worthy, loved, handsome, fit, fulfilled, positive, secure, respected, nurtured, articulate, desirable, and blessed.

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
