It's amazing how God always blesses us with a plethora of different talents and gifts, yet we spend a lifetime learning to accept and embrace them. Some of us chase after dreams that were placed on our hearts by others, not by the Lord. Others of us never let our dreams exist beyond the time we spend on our pillow at night. Many others fall into other categories beyond these and some in between.
And His joy translates through me when I share my creativity. Hence, the name of my blog: Everything Created with Love.
All the while, the Lord continues to bless us endlessly; each time He gives us another day to live, he gives us the opportunity to embrace the person He created us to be. I don't want to be one of those people that spends a lifetime pretending to be something I'm not or striving to fit a certain mold or ideal created by popular media. No. I just want to be me.
I know I'm not the only one who feels this way; others will take the same journey with me. I pray that I inspire other young ladies and young girls to step out of the shadows and bravely share their talent and gifts with the world. No longer should we be afraid or frighten by the chance of not meeting the approval of everyone. The only one I aim to please is my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. When I focus on my relationship with Christ FIRST, I immediately please the Father as well. When the Lord recognizes my desire to live for Him and Him alone, He is overjoyed!
Thought for the Week:
"Stay humble and stay true. The only one who decides what makes you happy is you. Never let anyone else define who you are or who you'd like to be. Trust your heart! God has great plans for you...YOU'LL SEE!"
