Is it a woman thing...this feeling of inadequacy? This need to produce and always measure up? And is it self imposed or does society place it on us? Is there a certain age where we discover us and embrace that, or is it a life long pursuit?
Just a few random thoughts running through my mind this morning...
I love blogging. The whole process feeds my creative soul but I have to admit that sometimes I stare at the blank screen and wonder what I have to share that could possibly be of interest to anyone out there. There are so many wonderful blogs with such worthy content.
Then I remember, I am me, not her or her or her. God has blessed me with my own set of gifts to use to encourage and inspire...not everyone will get it everyday but I may touch one person and that one person will walk away with a thought or a smile and I will have done my part.
I try to start my day over at Ann Voskamp's blog, A Holy Experience. She always has a nugget for me to chew on and today's was this.
"When you’re in covenant with Christ, it’s His responsibility to cover
your cracks, to be all your competency and completeness."
A weighty thought to apply to this simple blog I know, but it is so true. If I remain true to who I am in Christ, then He will cover the cracks. That should be my auto pilot answer to any feelings of inadequacy that creep into my thought process every time.
