While these are not my original words, they reflect something that I need to think about. My guess is you may need to think about them too.
It is easy for me to think that my gift is not good enough.
It is not big enough.
It is not bold enough.
I don’t have the right clothes, the right house, the right shoes or drive the right car.
I am just a total wreck all the time.
But I. AM. NOT.
I repeat: I. AM. NOT. A. WRECK.
All I need to do is take what I have, right now, at this stage of my life and give it to Him.
He can sift through the junk and find the gem.
He made me to be ME. Uniquely ME.
Not another me, not a different me…just my ME…the me He created me to be.
Jesus, help me remember that you are what really matters. That everything I do in this life should be a reflection of your love for me. You know my heart, Lord. You know the things that are troubling me. I let go of those things, Lord. Today…I give it to you to uncover the gem and show me what I need to know and to do.
If you are caught in this same trap, let it go.
