I have a confession to make! I'm not exactly sure why, but after I've been surfing beautiful Christian women's (young & old) beautiful, creative, blogs full of scripture & wisdom & photos, well... I click over to my blog and I'm always pretty much embarrassed because I think my blog is somehow profoundly inferior. Hmmmm.....As I ponder where to go with this, I do believe the Lord Himself gave me a rather profound thought. I know my writing is preposterously no where near important as Scripture, but the thought is that the Bible has no photos or beautiful artwork, just plain, simple (yet powerful) words. Obviously, nothing God does is by accident & I'm thinking just maybe His point in making the Word unadorned is because the Word so powerfully stands on it's own. But.... & this is AMAZING....He chooses you & I, to illustrate the Word by becoming "living epistles" as the Bible says we are when Jesus is our Savior! And because God is so amazingly creative, His children are each distinctly unique & we shouldn't even want to imitate others, except perhaps when it comes to inspiring one another to good deeds. I'm glad I confessed this to you since the Bible says "Confess your sins to one another & pray for one another for healing." James 5:16 My desire is to quit comparing my talents to others' & simply thank God for each beautiful Christian individual & give ALL the glory to God! Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia Isaiah 53:2 "He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him; there was nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him. He was despised and rejected by men....."
