.............I gotta wear shades -----> Going forward! Moving Ahead! Full Speed! No looking back! Life is not about "Me". Life is not about how other's affect my life but how does my life affect other's? Do I simply work at a Boutique and sell clothing?? Or Is my life more? So much more? I do not look at my job as simply a "job", but an exciting way to share the Love of God! I get to talk to precious women all day long! I get to serve them and love on them. I do not have time to "feel sorry" for myself Or I feel "entitled" that I should be treated with total respect and admiration ----by customer's or anyone else....Why? Because life is not about ME AND WHAT I WANT and WHAT I THINK and how I FEEL!
If I say I am a believer in Jesus Christ---then I live from HIM. My confidence, my substance, my beauty all flows from intimacy with him and what the bible says. If I am always living by what my circumstances are, What "they" said to me. What "they" did me, Always worried about how much money I do or don't have. If i never see past "my own" world..... Then My life will always be wrecked! I will live from bummer to bummer. I will be defeated in every crisis. I will be disillusioned into thinking people should recognize how awesome I am and wonder why they don't. And I will end up blaming God and believing that he does not love me.
I believe all of my hurts and upsets come directly from not living from the place of Intimacy with God. I will blame other's but it is really "Me" who has the problem. What does it mean to put God first in your life? How then--would my life be? How would my relationships be affected? If I expected NOTHING from anyone. If i just wanted to let Christ's light shine through me.....
In the past few years I can honestly say that Christ has definitely affected not only my inward appearance but my outward appearance as well. He continues to peel layer upon layer in my heart "the need to validate myself". I continue to seek to find my identity in HIM and therefore if shall flow outward. People may look at me and think they see someone "aesthetically " beautiful But I promise you--All the Beauty I possess comes "inwardly" From God. I AM Beautiful. I KNOW I am beautiful. I am beautiful because of Him
