Why do we as women of God allow the teachings of the world and/or the actions/reactions of other people permeate our deepest beings to the point of allowing ourselves to feel so invaluable as human beings? I have been pondering this question and what I can do about it since it came to light so obviously with reader responses to the article “I’M INVISIBLE”.
I cannot even begin to suggest that I have all the answers but one thought that comes to mind is that we MUST allow the LOVE and THE WORD of GOD be what permeates our very beings; we have to spend more time dwelling on HIS TRUTHS. That said I understand that time is in short supply but WHO gives us our time? THANK HIM! His Word tells us to, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15) I do believe if we spent more time in HIS WORD we would better understand how valuable we are. If we allowed a few pertinent scriptures such as John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends” and John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” to soak into our souls like water into a sponge, and kept refilling our spongy souls with the WATER OF LIFE, we would most likely feel a whole lot more valuable and visible, regardless of what we perceive and react to, from the world inside and outside our homes.
We are Daily Diamonds
Sometimes buried beneath the sod
But never so far under
That we’re not seen by God.
He is our Creator…
His hand is ever near
To help us and to hold us,
To wipe away a tear.
Sometimes our path seems weary
When the same old road we tread
And the dust of coal is lying
All over face and head.
But the Great Diamond Cutter
Knows just where to trim;
He sends the Living Water
And we’re no longer dim.
We shine with eternal beauty,
We sparkle in Living Light;
We are Daily Diamonds ~
We’ve passed through the dark night.
