Time certainly has a way of getting away from us-or at least it seems to disappear in my life. Once it disappears I am left wondering what I did with that time. Was it worthwhile? Did I use my time for myself or was it used to glorify my Heavenly Father. I would like to think that every waking moment I had was spent with God at the top of my priority list, but, much to my regret, often times this is not the case. As I sit here in my over-sized stuff chair two Bible verses come to mind. The first verse being Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” And the second verse being John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Both are super powerful verses and verses that I often time like to profess that I am following but deep inside I know that my own ways and actions constantly collide with God’s plan for my life.
Today though, I was given the chance to share my story, the story that I have slowly given my readers a glimpse of through this blog. No matter how bad or embarrassing my story is I know that it is something I have to accept and then build upon for the Kingdom of God. The exciting part about telling my story was the photo shoot that went along with it. Even when I don’t feel pretty myself, God has a way of putting people in my path to remind me that He made me specially and that He loves me how I look. I can’t wait for the story to be publish so at the start of the New Year check out www.theheartmag.com to order a copy for yourself. And that lovely angel that God put in my path today to remind me how beautiful I am was Mrs. Blair Bush, who is the photographer behind www.blairtoombs.com. Both sites have helped to spread the story that no soul is too damaged for God and that even when we stray from His path, He can turn our mistakes into works for His glory.
