Truth In The Shadows


For those of us in the second half of life, this is so important. How do we see ourselves?

Because of Him and Unto Him,

This reminds me of a cool photo I found on pinterest several months ago and sent to a ballet friend to see: http://pinterest.com/pin/14847873741492571/

In this one, it said to me how we never know who people have been in their younger lives too... just looking at the outside.

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Hope your computer is working again...

Very thought provoking pic!

I think the question is applicable for all age groups. How we see ourselves dictates how we operate in this world.

We all need to ask this question and Ask God to help us see ourselves how HE views us.

Interesting how when we see ourselves in Christ, the outside doesn't matter as much as it did...

Hope to see myself as God sees me:)

Diane,

That image is so true! I think we all see each other as younger versions of ourselves.

What helps me is hearing how God sees me too!

Have a great week,

Diane, you are such a wise friend. Always pointing us to things that matters most.

If not for the aches and stiffness, and the mobility slowness, I would say that my heart will always veer towards youthful feelings.

And yes, what we see of ourselves should be a thing to value. I delight in saying how much in-confidence I had is replaced by a security that God sees me as a princess-an heir to eternal riches.

Thanks, d.

I love it! May we ever see ourselves as God sees us. In Him we do not age, just mellow and get better.

Diane-
Well i got "stuck" as the one in the wheelchair, but changed my mind and decided to just go with how God sees me!

Still here, still a kickin, and still trusting God.

This one does make you think! Perhaps we need to hide all the mirrors..

Blessings. martha

Thank you all for your comments. I appreciate you all coming by to read and share. My computer is STILL NOT fixed. I don't know when I will be able to post again.

I love you all and miss YOUR blogs so much. Hopefully, there will be an end to this soon.

Oh I love this picture...just love it. It makes my heart glad. Thank you my friend for your prayers for Ace. He is battling for his life here...those malaria parasites have over whelmed his liver and eating his red blood cell. But God sent reinforcement in the form of meds. Hopefully in 24 hours he will begin to feel better. Right now his fever is still spiking at 103 with bouts of chills that rattle his hospital bed. Our son Jared has been with me daily and is so concern for he has never seen his Dad down. I am praying God will use this to open his eyes of his need.
What a blessing to have such prayer worriors praying all over the world, round the clock. Our daughter was moved to tears when she seen how many were praying while they slept over in Papua New Guinea. She is stuggling being so far away. Pray for her too please. I had to get on my blogs today, I so need the encouragement. Blessings my friend.

We are just a small circle interceding for Ace, but I know God has a huge circle praying all over this globe. You have laid down your lives for The Gospel; God is with you. He hasn't left nor forsaken. Satan may have asked to sift you like wheat, but Jesus has prayed that your faith will not fail you. We are standing with you during this most difficult time, encircling you with our love and prayers, dear Betty. I send you my hugs...
