Today I posted this as my Facebook status:
Why did God make me such an emotional person? It can be very frustrating at times. Feelings hurt for stupid reasons, cry at the drop of a hat, feel pain that others are experiencing, and have a hard time detaching emotions from most issues. The plus to being emotional is when something good happens, I get really excited.
Within an hour it had 40 comments from all women who felt the exact same way! (If interested, you can find it here.) I was amazed at how quickly so many replied all because they could relate. Truly ladies, I tell you, we are never alone.
Shortly after posting that, I received a note from a FB friend. She gave me permission to share it here. It blessed tremendously. Julie, thank you for allowing me to share this. *thankful tears*
I just wanted to share this with you too. I just got finished with So Long Insecurity by Beth Moore and in it she talks about how our feelings get hurt. First thing take these verses and claim them for yourself:
Ephesians 2:10- We are Gods Masterpiece. he has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the things He planned for us long ago.
Proverbs 31:25- She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
Gods gift to us is security in HIM. Its up to us whether we keep it or give it up.
This is from Beth’s book:
“The next time someone says or does something to you that has the capacity to dent your security think one of these thoughts toward that person:
You can hurt my feelings, but you cannot have my security. I won’t let you. Its mine to keep. You cannot have it.
You can criticize me and even be right about what I did wrong, but you do not get to damage my security Its mine to keep. You cannot have it.
You may have embarrassed me, but I refuse to let it fall on me so heavily that it smothers my security. Its mine to keep you cannot have it.
You may be so intimidating and threatening that I feel I have to hand a lot of things to you, but I refuse to hand over my security. Who you are doesn’t get to dwarf who I am. My security is mine to keep. You can not have it.”
Praying for you sweet sister.
P.S. sorry its so long
I bet you are blessed by Julie’s note as well.
And finally, I do not have a new Vlog this week, but with the cold weather quickly arriving, I thought you all would benefit from a previous Vlog where you are instructed (and maybe entertained…maybe) on a beautiful way to wear a scarf.
I present to you: The Wendy Wrap/Rap
And what Friday Vlog would be complete without the bloopers:
Have a great weekend y’all! Love you <3
