As many people close to me know, I care greatly what people think. I know, very silly. Everyone is different and not everyone will see things how you see them. Who cares? I am one who needs to learn to be confident that I am who I am, created by God to do something radical on this earth.
Here’s the thing. YOU ARE ENOUGH.
I was reminded of this the other day. I was also reminded of Esther. (Actually forgot about that book in the Bible all together).
Esther 4:14 – “…Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” Boom. Esther was enough; Revealing she herself was a Jew, saved her people. It encouraged those exiled Jews at the time to have courage and hope.
The photo with this post I took while in Africa. This woman was just sitting and looking at the BEAUTIFUL place she lives. I wish I could have talked with her. I think all women no matter where, need to know they are loved.
You were created for today. You are loved. I have lost sight of this for awhile now, and no matter what adversity you face from other people never forget that.
I have been coaching middle school girls to run a 5K and also to learn what makes them unique. And how our differences and similarities are all important as we become part of a team. You are different and unique, and this world, your team, needs you.
