The world is so quick to tell us that something is wrong with us and that we are deeply flawed. But, you know what? They are wrong. God formed us with His own hands, and we are exactly as God intended for us to be. Each and every one of us have unique gifts that God has given to us, and it is up to us how we use them and if we do so to glorify and honor Him. When we do so, I believe that God smiles a very wide smile indicating that He is well pleased.
When we stop fighting all that the world tells us that we are not and focus on all that God says we are, we will truly be content with ourselves in this life.
With that thought in mind, I have begun to explore all the wonderful things that God says about me in His word. In doing so, I thought what better way than to document this journey as all writers would do. I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when I received the Becoming Myself journal, and already I can tell that this little jewel will be a constant companion.
In this day and age where we have every gadget and piece of technology you could possibly imagine, it is refreshing still to me to pick up that pen and a crisp, clean piece of paper to write until my little heart is content. Writing is a passion of mine, and truth be told, it is a form of therapy as well. I enjoy writing so much, and it is wonderful to be able to type your thoughts out on the computer. However, there is just something about putting my thoughts down on paper that seem to give them more meaning at times. There is just something about jotting your thoughts down as they come to you. It seems to mean so much more when you take time and are intentional with every journal entry that you make. With every stroke of your pen, your thoughts have a way of flowing freely through you and helping you to reason and analyze along the way.
What is so special about this little journal is that it has passages of scriptures as well as quotes from Stasi Eldredge’s book. These offer plenty of opportunity to reflect on what she has offered within the pages of this journal alone, or it can go hand in hand with her book. That is what I like so much about this little journal is that just because she has written a book doesn’t necessarily mean you have to use it together as it’s perfectly fine as a standalone journal with scriptures and quotes to get you thinking. And in doing so, before you know it, you begin again by pouring your heart out on the pages of this journal.
Stasi certainly has provided thought provoking quotes all on becoming the person God intended for you to be. Just be open to what she is offering to you and allow them to speak to your heart as well. She writes beautifully as evident by the quotes within the pages of this journal, and her words are full of reassurance of God’s unconditional love, mercy, and grace that He extends and has for us ALL. The truths that she shares reaches into your heart and speaks to your soul.
Truly embrace God’s dream of you … become the woman God created you to be!
