I have an incredible opportunity to share my passion through writing and speaking. But ladies, every day, things fall short. Editors decline articles. House work piles up. Plans don’t come together. Life can be so discouraging! To make matters worse, the world around me is always screaming at me that I am not enough. Kelly Rippa tells me I can be even more amazing in her Electrolux commercials. Jordan Sparks sings that we can’t breathe if we don’t have a certain guy in our life.
Maybe I’m alone here, but do any of you ever have these feelings? When you have a bad week or were just tired of life so you think something or someone can fix your feelings of loneliness, frustration, or stress? Isn’t that why Huey Lewis used to tell us we were all working for the weekend? Girls, do you ever think, “If I just didn’t have all of the stresses of school, life would be better. Ladies, have you ever thought, “If my husband would just buy me flowers once in a while; take me out to dinner, tell me I look beautiful, that sure would help.” Maybe we think, if I could just get that job promotion and get away from this boss or get a house that isn’t falling apart, and then we would be happy. See, I don’t think I’m alone with this problem nor do I think it is new or uncommon. In fact, I would venture to say every human has struggled with feeling incomplete.
The Bible gives us some great insight into this completion thing. We’ll talk about it more tomorrow, but in the meantime think about this: What am I looking to each day to make me feel good about me; to make me happy?
See you tomorrow….
