Graceful friend, you are a blessing to those around you. Without you, the world just wouldn’t be the same! You were created by God to be one-of-a-kind. You share a unique fragrance of His life and love wherever you happen to be, in a way only YOU can do it.
If you are a friend, I want you to see yourself as a gift. You are not just a run-of-the-mill kind of girl. You are unique, and you are powerful! You offer encouragement that gives your friends the courage to run another day. You share laughter, fun, and yes… even tears. And you are so needed. You are God’s gift to your friends.
If you are a mom, like most of my readers, I want you to know that you are a gift to your family. Sometimes, you may not feel like it. But you’ve got to remember that God knew what He was doing when He gave you THOSE kids. He knows what purpose He has for them, and He knows that you are just the right one for the job of raising them! You are God’s gift to your children.
If you are a wife, you are a gift to your husband. You may not always see eye to eye, but God knows your hearts. He knows what you are made of, and He chose to allow you to share life with your husband. Be his encourager and his biggest supporter! You are God’s gift to him.
Imagine a beautifully wrapped present, complete with shiny ribbons and bows. It is full of surprises, full of destiny, and full of purpose. This gift is not just going to take up space. This gift is going to change the world. This gift, my sweet friend… is YOU.
As you rest in God’s grace, you’ll see Him unwrap the destiny that’s inside you… one fun-filled surprise at a time.
May the grace be with you!
I wrote this post as a part of the Five Minute Friday community, where we write for five minutes flat on a one-word prompt every Friday, and then visit each others sites to offer encouragement! Today’s prompt was the word: PRESENT. You can see all the lovely FMF posts here. 🙂
