August 2013 A Beautiful Mess: 30day Self Portrait Challenge

One of the blogs that I follow: A Beautiful Mess, has given me the opportunity to use my selfie photos to share and showcase ‘ahem’ myself here on my blog. You can join too by just visiting their blog!

Say goodbye to my fear of my own narcissism and of what others may think, here I am on the other side of the camera. At least now I can save my selfies and put it somewhere instead of deleting them to make room for more selfies.

At first, it does seem a bit prideful and over the top and then again why is this Christian girl putting so much focus on herself when the focus should be on God? But thank you Lord for this message:

Psalm 139:14
New International Version (NIV)
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

And I’m like….”Really?!” The Lord knows that, at sometimes, I struggle with myself and with my self-esteem.  I always have questions and doubts: “How am I wonderfully made when I know that I fall short? How can I be when I can’t see past my mistakes? How?” God has taught me to just let it go, stop wasting my time on those silly questions and simply believe in His great promises.

God has come through for me in so many ways and I can’t even believe this one thing about myself? Perfection is out when life gives me lemons and to me that is perfection!  To overcome the need to have every little thing in its place and time is pure perfection. Trying hard to not sweat the small stuff and enjoy the many special moments that I am truly blessed with. Well thank you Lord for bringing A Beautiful Mess into my life and giving me this great challenge to see how wonderful Your work really is.*
