Braver. Stronger. Purer. More peaceful and loving. Less Selfish. This is what Papa wants for us as we go on our journey of life.
‘His single-minded purpose is our maturity.’
It’s interesting, because as we age, we learn more and more about ourselves…what we like, what we don’t, not afraid to say no…no longer fearing what others might think. In my head, I’ve always wanted to blend in, afraid to disagree and state my opinion because I always wanted to be viewed as a “team player”…the one who’s flexible, positive, easy going. I suppose part of the reason,too, was/is because I am afraid to speak in front of my peers, especially in a large group setting. But, I’m pleased with my “evolution” over the last year or so…it’s getting a little easier…
When there’s passion in our opinions, don’t we feel more confident to speak freely our beliefs? We’re being true to ourselves, right? Isn’t that what Papa wants? As our peers may be judging or criticizing, what God thinks is the most important…so, let’s let our selves stand tall, because Papa is with us every step of the way! 🙂
We’ve been given a ‘love that lasts forever and a God who will never give up on you. That’s a good reason to have joy and to “come before him with joyful songs”.’
And, if we ‘can’t carry a tune, just give Him a shout-out’!
Here’s to continuously evolving into beautiful butterflies!,
“I’m grateful, Father, that You are at work in me. I find it difficult to change and I wonder sometimes how or if I ever will. Yet I know that You are continuing Your work in me and as I look back I will see the growth You are producing. Thank you!”
Psalm 100 Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His.
