IMAGINE ME

Imagine me, loving what I see
when the Mirror looks at me
'cause I imagine me
In a place of no insecurities
And I'm finally happy
cause I imagine me
Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me
'Cause they never did deserve me
Can you imagine me
Saying no to thoughts that try to control me
Remembering all you told me
Lord can You imagine me
Over what my mamma said
And healed from what my daddy did
And I wanna live and not read that page again
Imagine me, being free
Trusting you totally
Finally I can…imagine me
I admit it was hard to see
You being in love with someone like me
But finally I can…imagine me
Being strong and not letting people break me down
You won't get that joy this time around
Can you imagine me
In a world where nobody has to live afraid
Because of your love fears gone away
Lord, can You imagine me
Letting go of my past
And glad I have another chance
And my heart will dance
'Cause I don't have to read that page again
Gone, gone, it's gone, all gone
(Kirk Franklin - Imagine Me)

His Presence

This morning I was reading my weekly email from babycenter.com. It gives an idea of the growth of the baby and what other happenings will occur this week. A suggestion read that it is recommended that the mother talk, read aloud, and even sing to the baby. This suggestion made me pause. This made me think of my relationship with God. I do not see Him, but I talk to Him. I do not see Him but I know His presence is with me. I praise Him and I know He hears me.

Am I always mindful of the presence of God? Am I always mindful of the presence of God when I am disciplining my daughter? When I am discussing something with my husband that we may not see eye to eye on do I remember God is hearing me? When I am pushed or sometimes even stepped on while I am on the train am I always aware that God knows my thoughts? I always want to recognize the presence of the Lord in my life. Knowing that God is always watching, seeing, hearing me makes me more aware that I want to live a life that is pleasing to Him!

May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all His holy ones. 1 Thessalonians 3:13

How Do You See Your Life?

I was recently reminded of this special time in my life.
That lead me to ask myself the question, “How do you see your life?” Sure I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, etc. As I continued down the list, a verse came to mind, it was 1 John 4 :10 (NIV) "This is love: not that we loved God, but that HE loved us and sent HIS Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."

First and foremost I am the daughter of the One True God.

Blessed and Highly Favored…yep, that's me!
