You are BEAUTIFUL...

Lately I have been struggling with a great deal of things involving work.  I won't get into a lot of details, but it has gotten me down.  Last week was terrible.  But God is good and He has really lifted me this week.

Today I came home and since the hubs has call and won't be home til late, I decided to take a hot bath and have some devotional time.  One thing that has been heavy on my heart lately has been school.  I still feel at times that I am stuck.  Stuck in neutral.  I have all these things I WANT to do, but don't actually have the confirmation from God what HE wants me to do.  I have big dreams to be an architect, and I pray that the Lord makes it really clear to me if that is the path He wants me to take or not.  But its because of the neutral feeling, feeling inadequate in a sense that I feel...blah...

But an amazing thing happened as I was listening to pandora and just being with the Lord...this somg came on.  Its called "Beautiful" by Mercy Me.  It truly spoke to my heart tonight.

I know as women it is easy for us to feel inadequate when we have so much on our plates.  Work, school, a family (and sometimes all three of those things at once) and because we're women and its our nature to nuture I think its easy for us to feel like we are falling short when we don't get all the laundry done before work or if dinner isn't ready by a certain time, or if the kids are a little late for practice, or when our husband wants to love on us and he gets the big ole "Im tired..." 

But we are BEAUTIFUL ladies.  God thinks that of us.  From the tips of our toes to the top of our heads. 

In Gods Love,



  1. I on most days feel like a robot. Then I realize what its all for. Hugs for you this week!

  2. I had a time like that where I was praying for guidance on which path to take, and I was frustrated and confused because I felt like the Lord wasn't directing me, but then I decided that I was going to make a choice and use my own best judgement. Then, instead of praying for the Lord to tell me which path to take, I told him that I had made a choice that I thought was best for me and that I was going to move forward with it, and I prayed that he would simply let me know somehow if I was making the right choice. I started taking action, and promptly realized that the path I had chosen was not the one the Lord wanted for me. I changed direction, and all of a sudden, I got the confirmation I needed. Sometimes I feel like the Lord wants US to use our agency, but he will always be there to redirect us if he has other plans for us. We just have to be able to recognize the promptings we receive and strong enough to follow them, even if we don't understand how things will fall into place. I hope that makes sense. I'm here if you need anything, my friend :)

    1. you are so sweet Jesse and I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. I can't wait to see you! I hope its soon so we can catch up on all the things that have been going on with us while you have been a busy little beaver! Love you!

  3. So true! Sorry to hear you've been having a stressful time :(

  4. I hope your load lightens soon! Until then, at least you always know you have someone to turn to when you need help :)
