A girl, a hot hot 180 degree summer, an open tent camp meeting, and one lonely bobby pin. Hopeless situations are made of these things. I’m telling you, you don’t know what humidity is until you only have one bobby pin and a tent full of flies & dead heat. Complete exhaustion mixed with the reminders of your faults- should have bought bobby pins yesterday.
Raise your hand if you ever felt defeated and lost at the sight of all the flaws in the mirror.
(Currently raising every limb)
Maybe the mirror is an invisible one. One that is in your brain and in the back of your pretty little mind speaking negativity every chance it can. This mirror is able to be a kind one but too often it leaves you feeling less than. Or maybe you have two mirrors- a real life, gigantic one that helps you realize the largeness of your onion sized pores & also a mirror that doubles as a time machine, replaying every hurtful thing that ever crossed it. I have two. Do you? Maybe we could trade. HA
There are so many days I wish I could. Days like these I especially can’t put off reading God’s Word and talking with Him. He is the definition of all the good and beauty. He reminds me how special I am and how glad He is that I am His. He speaks sweet things to me, about me and diminishes every thought of ugliness I could ever ponder.
For His glory and because of His love, He hands me this gift. A gift wrapped in iridescent comfort tied in a ribbon that leaves you craving for more of this over-and-above love.
In Isaiah 60 at the tail end of verse 19 it says “But the Lord will be to you an everlasting light. And your God your glory.”
I love that: He IS to ME an EVERLASTING light. He shines positivity in the shadows and is a constant ray of love when feeling unlovable. For always and always and always-He is here…with me…forever. Speaking truth when lies penetrate our joy and leave us shaken. He has made you enough so forsake the lies of feeling less than. He is enough for you when your discouragement is too much. He is our glory, the reason to sing and praise. So talk with Him today, read on in The Word about His unfailing love and don’t forget to listen. He thinks your pretty incredible and can’t stop thinking of you.
That my dear friend is the bobby pin truth!
With Love and for Him,
