I am going to stop looking at my life and what it’s “missing.” The husband. The children. A house of my own.
I am going to start looking at what I do have. A roof over my head. A family (natural and spiritual) that love me. A job. A car. The many “extras” (i.e. my ipod, laptop, etc.) that some people just don’t have.
Because I am waiting to not have so much dept, to be skinnier. To be something that I’m not.
I am going to stop looking at myself and putting myself down. Not skinny enough. Too short. Not pretty enough.
For God told me that I am beautiful. God said that I would not live alone. But before the husband, the house and the kids, He asks me to seek Him first.
But seek His Kingdom and all these things will be given to you as well. – Luke 12:31 (NIV)
So today, I will actively seek You. And tomorrow. And the day after that…
And there may be days I don’t seek You, but I will pick up my cross the next day and start again.
