Every single person is unique. Every person was made uniquely by God out of love and careful thought. There is no love in judging people as being the same as everyone who is female or male or brown or peachish-tan or young or old or anything. For every woman who likes to shop and buys shoes like they breathe, I can show you a woman who works hard for her family and has three pairs of shoes (I am one of those). For every brown person who loves vulgar lyric rap songs, I can show you one who appreciates the sophistication of classical and jazz. For every man who thinks women were made to be their worshipping slaves, I can show you one who respects and teams with his wife. For every half-dead somber church member, I can show you a flaming charasmatic one. What I am saying is that the only true stereotypes or categorizations or cliches concerning people groups is that they are all ignorant constructs based on faulty or inadequate evidence to back them up. They are basically lies that foster division. And we must educate ourselves and work as a team as we were designed to do. Get over the propoganda and discover for yourself. I will be happy to introduce you to some people who would blow your mind, they are so very different than what people think by looking at them. All my patients are so stinking unique and amazing! I am too. So are you. So is evrrybody, that is the point. We were all designed by a loving God uniquely and on purpose and no person should ever be put into a stereotyping, cliche- driven category. It is demeaning and demoralizing and shows great disrespect for our Creator. Thank God we andre all unique and praise God He is so clever to give us all a mind to think for ourselves. Be you! ❤
Motion is what we were built for. God made us to move. When we work in any way, we are validating our makeup and propogating health and balance. God even built within us the motivation to work and move, called endorphins that produce a natural high as a reward. We feel good doing what keeps us healthy. ❤
I recently saw the “love of my life” (at the time I thought so) in a recent picture someone had. He looked super skinny and old and I learned he had married a really controlling and harshly domineering woman. And at first I thought he got what he deserved for throwing me out for that thing. Then I thought better of that little dig. You see, what I did not realize at that time through my heavy tears was that God had bigger plans for me than to be a wife to a philandering man (found that out too).
Yes, at times my marriage is rough but I know I am with the man God wants me with until death separates us. And here, I can focus on my kids and my home and serve in church and help a lot of people and play great music in a band and working as a consulting doctor. And as such, I am using my talents. In addition, I have a great future vision of housing teenagers who are pregnant so they will keep their babies and not abort them. It is on my heart. And I have to wait for a while but I will work on that goal.
All this detail to say that God knows what He is doing when He puts people together and when He separates them. Do not regret anyone. Learn what you can and accept God’s plan for you. He truly knows best as certain as you breathe. So the one who rejected me was not meant for me. Just learn and don’t get too close too soon next time. Wait for God’s timing and confirmation.
Family is strongest when God is the main focus of it. God designed family to be together and puts together family on purpose. It is the beautiful design for empowering His work and kingdom of love on this planet and giving us strength for eternity with Him. This is why evil attacks family. Evil wants to destroy everything God made and weaken and destroy everyone and everything. And evil gives nothing back. God, however, never stops giving. He is good and generous and rewards with blessings all family that focuses on Him and supports His design and each other as an extension of that. Family Strength is God’s design and help for us on this planet. And when we support our family and pray together and put God first, He gives us every tool we ever need. It is beautiful. Let nothing divide you from family and God will provide. Family Strength is our strength from God.
I looked objectively at my 40+ year old face. I see every hard time, every good time, every pain, every happiness. I see all that. I look a bit angry, a bit older, and that is my face now. It is not pretty, as the world sees pretty. It is not radiant or stunning. But it is mine, a reflection of me in this life. And there is only one of me. A face can change as skin loosens over time and fat comes and goes from beneath the surface layer, but who I truly am has absolutely nothing to do with that reflection. I am soul and spirit, the physical form changes. But who I am and who God sees me as being is the same beautiful little girl He created. And every person has their own unique beauty He designed. And every person’s beauty has nothing to do with their face or body shape or skin condition or color or hairstyle or whatever else we are programmed to believe. I am me because of who God designed me to be. Who you are is who God designed you to be. And He must really love us because we have such beauty inside and such amazing talents and gifts.❤
Faith has always been my spiritual gift. Many proofs I won’t get in to, but I make it a habit to be truthful always so I guess your faith in practice will allow you to believe me. Lol. My mom’s family (parents, grandparents, aunts, cousins, etc.) were missionaries. Missionaries often have a lot of faith because God proves Himself faithful to them. Often their faith is actually very small as they start their journey and by the end, their faith has been developed to enormous levels by God throughout it. That is how it is quite often. My grandmother, my strongest influence (a missionary nurse to Africa with my grandpa as missionary dentist and preacher) was my strongest faith influence. She co-authored my book Worry Crashers. She was ) prayer warrior, but her enormous faith developed over time but her obedience pushed her through to develop it. She told me this in correspondences. I was born with it. Like I said, it was my spiritual gift. We all have one. I just happened to learn mine young with family’s help, love and wisdom to draw from. What I really suck at in general is planning. I can see the big picture and know full well God will provide as we obey and He will help us meet goals He agrees with or will change my direction. No worries. But getting from here to there, I leap. I charge ahead. I trust and go. The details are not n important and generally work themselves out but sometimes God blesses me with precious friends who help me organize, plan and focus. My least favorite things to do. It is not n impatience either, as I though it was for a long time, it is vision to see the next goal from here. Even before this step is complete, my eyes see the next finished project and how it helps and figures in. I can visualize everything. I see it complete before some tiny faith person tells me it can’t be done. I laugh. I know it can. God let me see it. And even if humanly impossible, God can do absolutely anything. There is no doubt in my mind absolutely all. I do not trust people but I trust God with all my heart and soul. That is my spiritual gift and I wanted to share it for some reason. Maybe it will help you. Maybe it will cause you to seek out your God-given spiritual gift and have the courage to use it. Nothing is more satisfying. It’s how we are cut, our purpose, our meaning. Those who don’t look for God and do what God designed them to do are forever searching for some pathetic (but seems perfect at the time) substitute. Be bigger and wiser that that.❤
I am great with two groups of people: kids and the elderly. I am not good with the in between ages. That is how it has always been, except my few friends that mean a great deal to me. I used to think I was just weird, and I really am ok either that, prefer it actually. But lately, I think it is my gifting from God, my design. And in my service to others, I excel the greatest when I am working with kids and elders. And I do so as often as I can while still maintaining my responsibilities at home. And I really enjoy coaching 2nd and 3rd grade homeschool P.E. and I just live my kids. We have it every week and it is great. And my kids are feeling like family, telling me all about their weeks, holding my hands while we walk, racing me, giving a hug after class. It is just the sweetest thing. And I would encourage you, whatever age group God built you for, to serve them somehow. It is truly beautiful when we do what we were designed to do. Artists should do art. Musicians should do music. Politicians should really work on their moral code. Lol Do what God made you to do. It is worth the startup effort and God blesses your effort for Him well. ❤
