“Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what it cost Him. And never assume that if it cost Him His very life, that it won't also cost you yours.”

To Be Someone.....


"I was made to be distinctly someone, and so were you. In the mind of God, in His vision for the world, in His idea for the universe, He made you to go in it. He had in mind a particular you. A true you. An authentic, accurate expression of Himself....."
- Emily Freeman, Grace For The Good Girl

Such a beautiful reminder - I don't have to be ashamed of who I am or how I was made. Each one of us was made perfectly to fit into the role God has for us...and He had a plan for our past as much as He has a plan for our future. All we have to do is trust Him, and submit so that He can work through us and in spite of us.

  2. Wow, that's comforting! Definitely a beautiful reminder that we are here because of Him, by Him, and for Him. We don't need to worry so much about how we look to those around us. We are His. Thank you Lisa, for sharing!
