(Back story: Each week I link up with Lisa-Jo Baker. She gives us a prompt and we write for, yep, you guessed it… Five minutes.)
So here goes nothing.
Today’s prompt: TRUE
I swallowed the lump that was in my throat as I slowly looked around. I blinked. Then I realized what I knew to be true all along.
I. Was. Different.
Now, back in the day, the truth about me being different was kind of hard to swallow. Sometimes I yearned to be the fit and fashionable girl giggling by her locker instead of the non-boyfriend-having-super-academic-way-involved-uber-creative-girl I actually was designed to be.
However, as the years passed, it didn’t take me long to realize the truth about myself… and I kind of liked it.
I was the girl who wore duct tape to senior prom in an attempt to win a scholarship for college.
I was the girl who, as a first generation college student, went straight to a 4-year university right out of the gates.
I was the girl who, for one spring break, went to Missouri Auction School to become a certified auctioneer.
And now, I am the woman who is married to a solider, has a degree in animal science and masters in Christian leadership and works in ministry. For Jesus dollars.
Yep. True dat.
Bottom line, I am thankful to know and embrace my true self– and encourage you to do the same.
Specifically by worshipping the hippest, most loving, truest King there ever was…
I straight up rejoice in these, truths, my dear followers. Think to yourself for a moment: What personal truths are you thankful for in your own life? As always, don’t be shy– leave a comment below.
True blessings to you today,
“Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” ~John 17:3 NIV
