So I'm trying to get beautiful... Inside and out. I've lost myself a little over the last few months and I'm trying to get back to the beautiful on the inside me so that I can work more on the beautiful outside me and not feel like a fraud.
My favorite scripture is Isaiah 40:31
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength
They will soar high on wings like eagles
They will run and not grow weary
They will walk and not faint
I have not been very trusting of the Lord lately. I have not had my strength renewed because I have been looking to myself for strength. I am tired, weak and faint. After re-reading this verse I know that the reason for that is because I have not been trusting the Lord. It is crazy the timing that He has. I started my online bible study this morning with Proverbs 31 ministry (Made to Crave) and I am determined to get back to where I need to be. He saved me from the dark side once before and I was in so deep. I should not be alive today. I should not be in any of the situations I am finding myself in again because I have been saved. I have been looking for a man to save me but I have forgotten that a man DID save me. 1000 years ago on a cross. And I need to remind myself of that daily. Yes other people are where I want to be. I am no where near where I want to be. However I need to stop dwelling on that. Surely my God has a bigger plan for me. I can not imagine that He has brought me this far only to say "ok here you are, but that is it no happy ending for you". If he did bring me this far for only that... well then I should still be thankful because I deserve so much worse than what I have been given.
Ok I'll see you Thursday for the Blog Hop...
