Hey guys, I wasn't originally planning on blogging on here today but I came across a pretty groovy (Yes, I said groovy. Don't judge!) Link up held by two beautiful ladies Hayley And Lauren And I couldn't miss out on all the fun going on here this morning. :)
Share a photo of you along with three things you love about yourself.
A few years ago this would have been such a hard one for me to answer. Considering just a few years ago I didn't like myself or anything about me. I thought I was a weirdo and a ugly one.But God has been doing some major God changes on this heart of mine and has not only encouraged me to love myself but He's given me lists of why I should!! (A post for another time perhaps?) Anywho, At this point in life it's gonna be hard to narrow down everything I love about myself to only three things!!
1. I love the fact that I am free. Being in bondage with who I was my whole life.. Of insecurity, sexual abuse and not knowing how to deal with that, and the bondage of just hating who I was and not really understanding the Love of Jesus and who He wanted to be in my life. I now appreciate my freedom in Him more than ever.. He has given me the freedom to love myself, to dream, to run, to receive the very faith that Jesus died to give us so that we would have authority and victory in Christ. And the freedom to be a wife and a Mama after God's own heart. It's a freedom that only Jesus can give and it's def worth receiving. There would be nothing good about me without Him.
2. I'm Patient. I'm so glad Jesus blessed me with Patience.. It's really something I rarely struggle with and for that I am 100% thankful. Having a daughter who knows what she wants and will fight Mama hard to get it and a wonderful husband who works almost 24 hours on end as a police officer Jesus really must have known that Patience is really on my need list along with the rest of the fruit of the Spirit. I'm glad I have received them all.
3. I'm a writer. I love to write! And I'm so glad that Jesus gave me a gift for it. I'm not a huge speaker but will be if I feel called to or even asked to. But writing is a go to place for me. It's a place where my heart just freely speaks out without the worry of what people think. It's a gift that God has given me and I'm so glad I can use it for His glory.
What are 3 things about you that nobody else knows about? Or at least your blogging friends. :)
Happy Mid week lovelies!
