Those are quite a pair of shoes to fill, if you ask me! But I have been hearing it a lot lately....Why exactly, I'm not sure.
Cause I have 4 children now? (the youngest being a mere 3 mos old)
Because I spoke @ the womens retreat? I mean, really, it's just sitting there. lol
Because they think *I* put it *all* together? helloooo? I had a TEAM!
Because somehow I appear to *have it all together* @ any given moment? Let's get REAL!!! ;-)
I've aired enough dirty laundry on here to last for decades. I see no need to do that now.
The reality IS: all I am or appear to be, all I have or appear to *have* is simply because of Christ who lives within me. Nothing more, nothing less. I truly believe, if I have accomplished anything, it is only because of Christ within me that has given me gifts & talents and/or has equipped me w/ the tools necessary to appear to have accomplished something.
Even something like running. It is God who has blessed me w/ the health & legs to run. I can choose to sit on my *bigger side*....& many days I do, if truth be told. It won't make me a better runner if I do though.
Other days I *know* I don't want to take anything for granted. So...I put on my running shoes. I speak because God gives me words & I believe there is a limited window of opportunity for sharing @ times.
I feel passionate & excited for my future (regardless of present circumstances) because I believe in a God that desires growth, perseverance in hard times & praise in good times. And I believe in this God because he is the only truth I have known in my life. He is the only 'thing' that has never let me down.
SuperWoman! hmph! :)
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
