{my heart–convicted recently… sharing}

Have you ever heard the expression “I just need to find myself”?

Maybe you have been there, searching for who you are- leaving family and just looking- searching God’s creation for YOU.

Or maybe you have not physically left your life in this pursuit, but emotionally there are days when you are “checked out” and unavailable. [I am pointing any  and all fingers at myself!]

People searching, hunting, rummaging, pursuing– for SELF. {Who am I?}

~a quest of self-discovery.

Christmas 2011-039

Our world is filled with these people. We have a pre-occupation with SELF.

And God says we are FOOLS.

A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.  Proverbs 18:2

  Being a Wife is a full-time responsibility. Being a Mommy is hard work. You know this.

We don’t have time to “find ourselves.” [and if we tried, that would make us fools!]

We do not have time to be “checked out.”

BUT

We don’t have to.

If Jesus has you, then you ARE found. {JOY}

Christmas 2011-173

we are   {FOUND}

Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. Luke 15:6

we are  {OWNED}

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one. John 10:27-30

we are  {LOVED}

I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Proverbs 8:17

I must REST in HIM~in WHO He is~in what He has done for me~in what He can do through me.

…and be contented in knowing that where I am is not where I will always be.

I pray you have a BLESSED weekend!

Because HE is… I can be!
