While reading a fellow blogger’s post this mornig, I was reminded how a rose, when it’s withered or crushed, gives a more beautiful fragrance, more so than before that state. It doesn’t become a different flower because it’s withering. And although the physical beauty is diminished, the fragrance on the inside is enhanced and more dominant in this new situation, if you will.
No matter the pain and suffering we may endure in this life (nobody is immune), if we are steadfast within ourselves, the person GOD has created us to be, and not compromise who we are during a low point, OUR FATHER in HEAVEN gives us beauty for our ashes. Our beauty, our fragrance that is on the inside of us, comes out because of the anointing which is upon us, while HIS HANDS are resting upon us.
I’m so happy and thankful that I read that post this morning. In a few words, I was reminded of so much! That we are all truly valuable and loved.
I’m not going to be anyone other than who GOD created me to be. And for those who can’t deal w/ that, see ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya.
Need a little encouragement because you are feeling unappreciated? I hope that’s not the case, but if it is, here’s something to help cheer you on:
People can say and think about you however they wish, but that doesn’t mean you have to believe their words when you know good and well it’s tearing your spirit down.
Remember that you’re special, and you were worth dying for.
