I’m an Egg

 

Lord,
use my brokenness
to lead me to you
to display your light through me
to connect to the brokenness in others
to make a lovely omelet in life…

Today I choose thankfulness
Today I choose peace
Today I let go of worry
Today I breathe deeply

Today I reach my heart to the sky

Why do I
sometimes feel
shame
or
embarrassment

for the things
that make me
unique?

for the things
that make me
complex?

God loves
those things
about me

even when they aren’t pretty

February is all about love, isn’t it?  Whether you are a hopeless romantic or believe Valentine’s day is a Hallmark holiday, thoughts of love fill the air during the month.

For anyone who struggles with seeing their own value, February can be a difficult month.  Romantic movies lead us to believe that we need someone to “Complete Me.”

So, for this month of love, I am going to post photos and messages daily on the Know My Worth blog and Facebook page to remind ourselves “I AM COMPLETE.”  We are already whole, and no man, woman, or child can complete us. My challenge to you this next month is to remember it.

Invite your friends! I do hope you join in with me and the Know My Worth community on the blog or Facebook page, sharing your thoughts and encouragements. Much love to you~

Hey self,
Gimme a break.

This is who I am today
and that’s ok
I don’t have to be “better”
I don’t have to have things  “handled”
I don’t have to have it all “figured”
I don’t have to have it all in “control”

This is me
This is today
and
This is ok

We will be healed.

It may not be exactly
how we think it should be

how it should look
when it should happen
what should be gone
what should be forgotten

but He is there
and He will hold you
through it all
and we will be healed.

Dear God, help me enjoy today without anticipating difficulty
without worrying that something will go wrong
that expectations will not be met
that something will happen
that something, anything, everything…

Help me stop.
Help me rest in you
Help me give it all over to you

and I will enjoy this day you have made

When I try to be everything for everyone else, I lose me
and that’s who they wanted in the first place

O God, praise your name!
I am blessed to know you
To be able to talk with you

To know you listen
to my words and cries
To know you care
about the simple things I ponder

You bring comfort to me
You lift me in times of sadness
You celebrate with me in times of joy

You know my weaknesses
and love me anyway

You see me
as perfect
as the robes of your Son
cover me

Your grace
coats my flesh
sealing my skin
in radiant light

I am covered by you
I am loved by you
I am blessed
