I asked the sweet Katie from Hope Engaged to share some of her thoughts on Satis, being enough in an ever changing and demanding world, and boy did she share some insight. I have read her words a few times, letting them slowly sink in. This sweet girl has a way with words that touch readers hearts, as she shares her stories and adventures from serving in Nepal to everyday wisdom for women.
When Sheila shared about how we are enough, it immediately reminded me of a quote I heard that inspired me immensely.
I have been meditating on it all week, reading it and rereading it because it lifted my soul.
When my sweet lovely sister Lena came to visit me for a week,
we giggled and laughed our way through a fun photo shoot in the park
and I thought i'd pair them both together for you today!
The following words are taken from an article called "You are Enough"
from a blog called Darling Magazine.
We must choose grace.
We must choose to take it easy on one another,
and to be kind to other women.
We must choose to believe that we have something to offer this world
that no one else can.
You have something inside of you
that is so unique and so good.
Next time you are tempted to compare yourself to someone else,
look deep inside of yourself.
Explore and find out what it is that makes you different,
what it is that makes you feel special and beautiful and whole.
Don’t worry about whether or not someone else can do it better than you.
No one else can be you, and you were created in the image of a perfect creator.
Don’t allow comparison to rob you of
your light and
isn't that so so good?
when I read it I seriously let out a sigh of relief,
thankful that even if someone can do something better than me,
only I can do it the way God created me to do it!
that we are shaped and molded after the Creator to do what only we can do?
to love and serve and GO where only HE has called us?
I think in the end, this quote embodies being brave.
To step into the treasures Abba has given us,
instead of comparing and wanting what others have.
we are unique and fully loved.
and that is grace
flowing down from our loving Father.
happy day dearest friends!
Thank you so much for stopping by Katie, I loved the quote from Darling Magazine! And how true is the line, "Don't worry if someone can do it better." In a world where social media and TV glorify only the highlighted reel, it's a beautiful reminder to not compare, because we are unique. Amen :)
Another story coming your way next week!
With a grateful heart
