Is it difficult for you to be yourself? Do you have a hard time believing that you are beautiful? I believe it is such a blessing that we each are so unique! Even identical twins have their own one-of-a-kind fingerprint! I think this is just one way that God communicates to us His belief in us and His ability to know us and love us each for ourselves! If you find believing in yourself or your beauty challenging, I hope you will make time for yourself and go to your Creator in prayer. Ask God to bless you with an understanding of His love for you and the gifts He has given you. Ask Him to help you see yourself as He sees you. If you are willing to watch and listen, I know that you will find your experience a blessing in your life!
I am often guilty of looking at a project that is mine to accomplish or create and becoming overwhelmed. At my age, I have been a part of a lot of projects! Being that I am no newcomer to the concept of projects, you might think that I should be used to the whole concept. What I have found, however, is that each project is not just a project; it is a growth experience. Growth always means something new or enlarging my skill set. The last several years it has meant learning to utilize new technologies! Is there anyone out there who finds keeping up with all of the new social media and technologies a piece of cake? If so, I am in awe of you! For me, it seems I just get the hang of something and then it changes or there’s something additional I need to learn! I remember when I was first married, just learning to cook and manage a home was a HUGE challenge for me. Now, as I work to learn new things, cooking and homemaking are my comfort zone. Life would be so easy if that’s all I had to do! What I have learned is that the new end of an experience is never easy and was never meant to be. And, if I just attack a project by determining what the end result needs to be and break it into the steps that need to be accomplished, it all becomes manageable. Very few things can be accomplished overnight or in one giant leap. But mountains can be moved a rock at a time!
The most amazing individuals who have ever lived have all had vision. (Some of them have even had visions!) However, just like Helen Keller, not all of them have had sight. Do you have vision? Do you understand the gift that you were born to be? If you hear that little voice inside telling you that you are no one special, please take some time to talk to God. Ask Him who you are to Him. You will be surprised at what He will tell you! When you sincerely reach out to God and have a true desire and willingness to listen to what He has to say, the answers will come and if you allow those answers to penetrate your heart, I promise that you will never be the same again.
