While chatting with a friend last week, she said something that I have not been able to get out of my mind since. She said, “We appreciate what we don’t have more.” 💯 Ain’t this the truth, y’all?!!! While I’m inclined to apply this to material things, I can’t help but see how it applies in other ways. I often find myself appreciating the qualities in others that I wish I had. Most days I literally feel like a hottt (with three t’s) mess! Why can’t I get this/that right?! Why do I struggle with the same things every day? Why can’t I seem to establish a rhythm for life? Why? Why? Why? What is wrong with me? 😩 But shoot! Yes, I’m not perfect. BUT there is so much about me to appreciate. I can’t think of those things at this exact moment, but I know they’re there. 😆 I think I’m going to compile a list. If you’re dealing with the same lack of appreciation for self, I’d invite you to compile your list too! #iAppreciateME
Today I’m left feeling really special. 😌 There have been some things I’ve been wrestling with, and I feel like God has been using people to speak directly to my heart. 🙌🏾♥️ I was blessed to hear @drtarajenkins
speak a while back at a Women’s Conference, who’s topic was #Repurposed
. Just to give you a taste of how good the word was, she talked about how God wants to “repurpose everything that you thought you knew about yourself” through an: Upcycling, Upgrading, Uprooting, Upstaging and Uprising. Throughout her sermon, she kept having us say “God is up to something!” I totally feel that today & there’s a peace in knowing that my God is up to something even if I can’t necessarily see what that ‘something’ is. She also said, “You’re already what you’re not yet!” Let that thought settle in for a moment. 🤯🤯🤯
I’m ending my day with a full heart, completely encouraged knowing that God is up to something on my behalf for His purpose. The same is true for you who are reading these words. God is up to something. His sight for your life is higher than your view can see right now! Own it! Rest in it! .
