PAINT AWAY friend! Yes you! Paint away with your words…silence that inner critic– that tells you your words don’t matter. silence the inner critic– that tells you your story is worthless –nobody will care.. Because friend God says your words matter…your story matters..if you think no one cares, He cares.. His presence is there and he sees you writing your heart out…maybe to speak for a conference, or preparing a message for your bible study group, or a blog post.. Silence the inner critic–that says you can’t do it and that you’re not a leader because you don’t have a “title” next to your name…When you do that voice is silenced giving no more room for the enemy’s lies. Words of life bring healing to a hurting soul….Words of life..bring hope to someone who feels hopeless..It will get messy in the process, but it will look beautiful in the end because Jesus uses beautiful imperfect people to bear His name. He created unique individuals that he molded and crafted into a beautiful painted picture of His grace & mercy. We are ALL in need of this everyday. And we want YOUR story, YOUR words, not someone else’s. There is no one like you in this world…(message to myself). Check out what Romans 12 verse 4,5,6 says…
For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function,so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly… Romans 12:4,5,6
LOVE! So encouraging sisters. We don’t have the same function. We have gifts that are different according to the grace given to us. We are so undeserving for Him to speak through us, BUT by his Grace we are privileged and we should honor that gift. Whatever gift he has blessed us with.
So go paint on with your words, speaking, serving… silence that inner critic… He sees you and that is what matters…:- )
