I had the opportunity to write yesterday’s devotion over at christiandevotions.us.
Wallflower or Wildflower
“Why am I not more like her?” You’ve thought it before, haven’t you? She is beautiful and poised and confident. Everybody loves her. If only you could be like that.
Then you step in front of a mirror and you see your mousey brown hair, your freckled face, or the body shape that’s always left you feeling insecure—and your initial thoughts are reinforced. God obviously has big plans for the one who looks so composed, but I was born to hide in the shadows.
You don’t let yourself think about the possibility of big things. Instead, you settle into your wallflower mentality, believing this is what you were made for. You were created to be the one who just hangs with the crowd … never stirring the waters but never making your mark either.
It’s a lie. We often find ourselves so entranced by the world’s deception that we not only believe the lie, but we also think it’s good. We think it’s right. . .
