The year was 2015, New Year’s Eve, and I remember questioning my purpose, value and worth. It was also my birthday, and I spent most of the day reflecting, hurt and disappointed. My birthday falls on the last day of the year, and my biggest issue was adjusting to the fact my mother would not be calling from heaven to say, “Happy Birthday!” She was one of the few people who understood me. No long explanation…just a look or glance, and she knew exactly what I needed.
My mother was my prayer partner, friend, counselor, nurse, doctor, business owner, cheerleader, driver, encourager, human Bible and wonderful cook. It took all thoses years to really get the concept: WE ARE ALL ON BORROWED TIME. No longer will there be days of coming home to precious birthday cards, cake or ice cream. And so, I tried to find my value and worth by purchasing some extremely expensive shoes. It felt awesome when they arrived in the mail. As a matter of fact, I purchased more. Then, I tried on the first pair, and quickly discovered, the shoes did not serve me well. My husband and I, attended a gala fundraiser, and I had to hold on to him for dear life. I hastily learned, five and six inch heels are downright unbearable, and if I exceeded 5 minutes my toes would soon blister up in heat. Hence, I made a decison. I finally accepted that my gorgeous shoes are not comfortable on Sharon’s feet, they had to GO. As a result, I truly understand the principle, anything that does not serve you good, release it, and let it GO. I’m listing them, and using the money to BLESS someone else in need. Time has taught me, the true value is not what shoes I’m wearing, it’s WHO is wearing the shoes. When we understand whole heartedly, that we are God’s children. We will understand our purpose, worth and value, which comes from God in Heaven– never things! I’ve learned, when I follow after God/ Lord, have a servant heart, think about what I can give, oppose to what I can get. The Lord/God always provides. We are all agents assigned to ensure someone knows him through our light/actions/works– not our shoes. If we love him, then everyone should be able to know; because our actions will paint a clear story. Love is a verb, something you do and not just say. Anything you love, you spend time, money, resources and attention to. Love goes the distance, and isn’t there when it is convenient. People often get love and like confused. Like never goes the distance–no real substance or benefits.
In conclusion, we all should strive to be whole, happy, and balanced. Be still, and know that God is always in control. Anything that doesn’t serve you usefully, release it! Love is a verb and your actions verify your words. Always walk in agreement. Thank you for visiting my page and have an awesome day!🌺🌺🌺
