i challenge you to
picture yourself {im}perfectly
this week and link up your blog post.

 

show others that it’s not all about
always showing ourselves in the best light.
but it’s more important to reveal truth in our lives.

 

sometimes i forget
that the ultimate goal for this life
isn’t about comfort.
sometimes i find myself longing for
quieter, more peaceful times
(that don’t exist
anywhere near my life right now).
times where i can
leisurely go and get a cup of coffee.
or read a book that isn’t about parenting or IEPs.
or sit for a moment to collect my thoughts.
or times when i won’t be so utterly and completely
dependent on God
in every single aspect of my life.
all the time.

 

often,
too,
too often,
my focus flows into
getting through this time
or that time
rather than just being in those times.
fully in those times.
seeking Him
and His purpose
for my life.
focusing my eyes on Him
who gives me strength.

and all the while being grateful
that i am going through
this or that
because it is solely through those times
that my relationship with Him
grows stronger.
and sometimes i forget that the ultimate goal in life
is
to be fully
and utterly
and so very completely
dependent on Him.

 

 

picture me {im}perfectly
is a weekly project to reveal
that we don’t have it all together.

 

i will post a

picture me {im}perfectly

blog post every wednesday

where you will be able to link up to your blog

revealing that:

 

you are not picture perfect,

your kids are not picture perfect,

your house is not picture perfect,

your crafts are not always picture perfect,

 

let’s

encourage,

inspire and

remind

other women

that none of us have it all together.

add my button to your blog post
and link up to your direct posting
and feel encouraged.

 

I can do everything
through him
who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13
