Surprises and Blessings – Part 2 – June 5 Inspiration

by -

More surprises and blessings to share with my blog readers! 🙂 I’ve known about this for awhile, but I was waiting for my daughter to give me the OK to share publicly, and she announced it today…

 

My precious little family - daughter Joy, son-in-law Cory, almost 4-y.o Chloe, almost 2-y.o. Ava, and...Baby "J" on the way!

Yes, in December, grandchild #3 will arrive! 🙂  Chloe asked Joy if she “had a baby in there” (as she poked Joy’s tummy), even before Joy knew she was pregnant! Chloe has also proclaimed this is a “baby brother” because she already has a sister…so we’ll see! 🙂  For now, he or she is Baby “J” (for the first letter of their last name).

So here’s your Sunday inspiration…

 

“Almost every one of us

could use some improvement

in our self image.

It takes time to grasp the hope

for ourselves that God has for us.

It is so wonderful and comforting to know

that when everyone else

only sees our faults,

God still sees

our possibilities.”

–Joyce Meyer in “New Day New You”

My reflections:

I really like this one and it’s such a good reminder, whether we’re experiencing ridicule from other people or if we’re our own worst critics.

Must remember: “When everyone else only sees our faults, God still sees our possibilities.”

~~*~~

So what are YOUR thoughts?

How’s your self-image?

Does it encourage you to know God still sees your possibilities, in spite of your faults?

faults-possibilities

    Congratulations on the great announcement. It is amazing sometimes when kids know something even before we do. Grandchildren are such blessings.

    Aw, that’s so great to hear about your 3rd grandchild! 🙂 I like your reflection. I’ve always been the hardest on myself, it’s something I have to work on every day. And yes, it is very encouraging to know God sees all possibilities for me. xx
