A Great Reminder

Sometimes I feel unworthy.

Feel faith in God for others but save none for myself.

It’s not that I’ve done anything horrible.

It’s more that I haven’t done enough and that I’ve listened to the world tell me that I’m not good enough, pretty enough, skinny enough, etc. I’ve become so accustomed to those words that they reflect back in the mirror every day. They reflect the way that I see others and feel towards them they reflect back with guilt on my salvation, in My walk with God.

At times, when I pray at night for other’s I remember that God can transform and or change anyone. He changed Paul. A man who once believed a certain way and persecuted those who didn’t believe as he did. He thought that he was speaking God’s truth but he was deceived by the world. If God can change someone like Paul, like the thief at the cross, then what is to stop him from changing those I love and changing the way I feel about myself.

Tonight’s Our Daily Bread devotional ended with this thought: “No one is beyond the reach of God’s mercy and grace.” 


Have a blessed night everyone and never lose hope.

About jazzyjenness

I'm the mother of three girls, a Grammy to two little girls, a girlfriend and we have a cat with many nick names, depending on his mood and activity, or lack thereof. I've been writing since I was about 8 or 9, and it is something that I love to do. When we read books, we do it for entertainment, escape, and education; the three E's. These are also the reasons why I write, to entertain, educate and escape. My desire is not just to do what I love, but I want to give hope and inspiration to others through my stories. Currently, I am working on obtaining my Master's degree in Creative Writing and hope to also become an instructor at my school one day and teach Fiction Workshop.
