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.

Persevere Under Trial

I could hear the tears through the phone. 
It was test out day for the Lifeguard training class. There was  a written test as well as a water skills test. Both sections were required to be completed at an above average passage rate in order for the student to graduate to full lifeguard status. 
Not only were two questions missed on the written test but there was a deficiency in the water skills exam. 
Good news.....
There was an opportunity to retest on the following day. 😀
Bad news.....
The retest was a futile attempt. 😞
After missing the same two questions on the written portion, there was no opportunity or need to retest on the water skills.
I'm sure you can guess what happened next. Yep, there was the internal struggle of do I retake the entire course and test again OR do I cut my losses and move on?
Many of us end up at this crossroad. We get here when we feel like we have given our all to something and did not achieve the result we hoped for. Here are just a few examples: W…
