Imagine you walked around with a #hashtag over your head at all times. What would it read? #depressed? #tired? #angry?
Or are you someone who brightens a room when you walk in? #joy #childlikewonder
I was once the person people avoided. I was going to have a laundry list of problems and I was going to talk about them in detail to anyone who would listen.
And people stopped listening. I couldn’t blame them; even I didn’t want to hear me.
I basically walked around with #stayaway over my head.
Then I met Jesus. And #joy took over.
But guess what? It wasn’t affixed with some magical Galaxy Glue. It was more like double-sided tape and I’d forget to put my side up sometimes.
So even as a Christian, a born-again believer who’d been set free, I once again wore #lifestinks as a slap-in-God’s-face testimony.
But that’s okay. Because I didn’t STAY there.
Let’s face it: life isn’t going to be all sunshine and roses. There are going to be times when we cloud our witness. Thankfully we have a merciful and forgiving Father who loves us and just wants to see us return to #blessed and #free.
What are you wearing today? #scared? #confused? #hopeful?
Whatever it is, there’s a verse for it. And that verse points UP. Trust Him. In EVERYTHING.
