I've been a bit obsessed with blogs lately. Not just updating my own but reading others.
. . . Just a few of the many that I follow daily.
I find so much laughter and entertainment in them. I love seeing others photography. So much creativity. But most of all lately I'm loving God's word. God's beauty. I've found an awesome group of people who show me more and more each day how we're not alone. We're taken care of. We're blessed. And now a weekly blog on being encouraged (Call me Blessed).
So my challenge. . . what to say, what to share. . . to encourage someone. Anyone. But most of all right now, myself. Because by reaching out for someone else I am always blessed and encouraged myself.
Some things I know but dont always think about:
I am a beautiful child of God.
A good mom.
Made for a purpose.
That last one is on my mind. I know it's true. I believe it's true. But I don't really live like it is. I'm stuck in a rut and waking up every day tired and drained, lazy and stressed. I need to step back and take in who I am in God's eyes and live it out. There's too much time spent just walking in a slight daze and not a purposeful, "I'm a wife, a mom, a friend who can do this and this and this. . "
I guess I'm trying to encourage myself here. I want to walk taller, be happier, do something productive, because every second counts.
Lord go with me, love on me, reveal your beauty in such amounts that I'm in awe of you daily. Show me who I am in Your eyes again.
Dont forget God's promises.
