August 5th – Eye of the Beholder

Aren’t five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God’s sight. Indeed, the hairs of your head are all counted. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows!

Luke 12:6-7 HCSB


Hello God…it’s me. Thank You for sitting enthroned above the earth, and yet knowing every detail about me.

In my attempts to be what everybody wants and needs of me, I’ve forgotten who I am. Consumed in disappointment and frustration, I’ve also given up on finding myself. I used to be kind, upbeat, and patient. I used to be understanding and trusting. Now I’m quick to judgment, unforgiving, and reckless with my opinions. But God! God knows me…even when I’ve forgotten myself. Because of this, it is through God that I can find myself again. I can return to me through God. I only pray that during my journey back to myself, those around me, accept me.
