For most people there one day comes the question, who am I? What do I stand for? Am I good, am I bad, am I mean, or am I in between? what do people think of me and do I really even care or matter? The truth is, you do matter. To the whole world, when they look at you, they really are seeing a blank page, a person that they don’t know and can not truly see. No one knows us from the inside out and no one knows the value of our heart. Who am I, who are you? What do we have to offer to the world? We are all writing another chapter of our lives with every choice we make and every bad and good deed done. Each day gives us a new opportunity to create a better future, a better us, a better world. It’s up to you to put who you are in the eyes of what people will see you as. As you write each chapter of your life it becomes colorful, but still washed out. It shows a little more of you every day if your heart is black or beautiful. You bring good to life when you follow God and He wants you to show His love to the world, but it’s still distorted, none the less, because your life is always a work in progress.
If we live in beautiful color by choosing good choices and holiness that shines out to all. We paint beauty with applying the fruits of the spirit;
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control”
Looking at ourselves daily will help us to always lean into Gods will. So, let’s look and see, how can we all paint a face into the dark shadow of the faceless, what can we do to practice the fruits of the spirit, and how can we create more joy, more peace, show more love, and create beautiful colors in a world full of gray?
