More of me than you wanted to see, I’m sure. WAY more of me than I wanted to show. Without a doubt.
I wish I knew how to use photoshop – or even owned photoshop. Just a little trim off that muffin top would have been nice.
I shared it just the way it was sent to me. Why?
Because you and I get all hung up on the couple flaws. When we see a picture with us in it, INSTANTLY our eyes go to us and we automatically pick apart what we don’t like about our angle, our smile our stance, our look.
And the filtering and editing begins.
Well, no editing here. You might be asking – WHY????
To make a point.
We so quickly notice what we don’t like about our own pictures, our own lives, our own worlds. But when this picture was taken, all I was thinking about was this…
“I haven’t felt this alive in a long time. God’s creation is amazing! Look at that blue water! How does He keep the ocean so clear? I just saw the biggest sea turtle I have ever seen! Does anyone have flippers??? I want to swim with that thing!”
I was so amazed at His CREATion, I was coming out of my skin! It was…breathtaking.
You and I forget that WE are His CREATion. Just as fantastic as we think the ocean is – we ( you and me) are that fantastic.
Just as radical and magical it is to see a 6 foot round sea turtle swimming by – WE are that radical and magical.
You’re trying to off-board here, but I’m not going to let you.
God don’t make no junk (bad grammar, but deep truth) And He CREATED you. Intentionally. On purpose. Just that way.
It’s time we stop being dissatisfied with God’s creation and started living our gift of life to the full. Need help? We are here for you.
We have a conference (for women, guys if you wanna be there you have to volunteer) in two cities to help you focus on JUST THAT! June 10-11 in St. Louis and June 24-25 in West Palm Beach. It’s super inexpensive and includes more life, food and fun than you can believe.
It’s time you invest in YOU and have your eyes opened to the wildly impressive creation YOU are!
It’s time. It’s time to share this post with every girlfriend you ever had that needs to learn to love herself so she can love others better. It’s time to get your tickets so that you can realize – YOU were CREATEd for more! www.iamwoman.tv get you tickets NOW!
We are fantastic and magical and created to experience a great life and reach all of our dreams and goals? I thought we were born depraved enemies of God and it is only by His goodness that He saved the undeserving by grace through faith in Christ. I thought it was all about God’s goodness and not how good we are, but I also thought it was about glorifying God and being obedient to God rather than reaching our dreams and having our best life now.
Lady your beautiful you don’t need to worry about your looks or any flaws god blessed you I too went through hell all my life from being molested as a kid to having my dad and numerous others trying to kill me I still have people wanting to kill me now im suffering life ending diseases but still trust god to protect me as a soldier in his army pray for my healing and full restoration
I just got a phone call from the a woman from Faith Church this past week. I actually started watching Faith Church about two years ago. I am disabled, my health was pretty bad and I had just had a lumpectomy. The chemotherapy took a pretty big toll on me physically so I figured I didn’t have to leave my home to be able to feel a part of Church. I weighed about 102 pounds, my hair had fallen out, I had lost two fingernails and my teeth were cracking off one by one. This also was about the time that the Church was coming to Palm Beach. I just figured you guys were visiting a few times and was too embarrassed to be seen in public the way I was. I prayed and prayed to muster enough confidence to be able to have a life outside my home other than Doctors appointments. I know how this all happened now and I love Faith Church. It took two years for me to finally get the okay from my Doctors and feel confident enough in my driving to drive to West Palm Beach from Delray. I came to Church three weeks ago for the first time in person. Pastor David was speaking and I got there a little late but I made it. I came the next week and your son Austin was speaking and Chick-Fil-A was a part of what he was saying regarding getting our needs met and how we are never forsaken, God does not let us down or forget about us. I have two teeth left in my mouth and I am more confident now than I was when I had a full set of teeth. I have the confidence to come to Faith Church because some how you and Pastor David or Austin or the many others I have seen were there for me, letting me know that I matter. My teeth or lack of teeth and my disability does not define me. I love this church so much. I know I am just one of the many people that hear the inspiring messages that you have helped. Thank you for being there when I was too sick to come to service and thank all of you for welcoming me now. The beauty of the World around me is astounding, my son, who has been a champion for me, has been amazing. I am a 52 year old student because I know that no matter what any Doctor says, it is up to me to allow the joy in my life. Thank you all so much.
