The Challenge....

Becoming Beautiful


When I bought this planner during the first week of January I was kind of disgusted. Being the first week of January there were not a lot to choose from and quite frankly I thought it was ugly….

It doesn’t say anything encouraging on the front, just 2020 it has these weird flowers with gold, not my favorite color. I bought it and started using it unlike last year buying a very beautiful one and barely touching it.

A lot has changed from last year. And now when I look at this planner it makes me happy. There are wonderful things inside this planner. Exciting things, dreams, hopes… List of things to do and things that have been done. My heart is filled with gratitude this morning. I am so lucky to be where I am and have the friends that I have!

For so long, I have thought if my situation were different, if my job was different, if I had my own house, my own space, my life would be great. “This stuff outside you, no matter how troubling, it’s not as dangerous as the mess inside you, and for that you have the grace of Jesus.” Paul David Tripp. These outside things, like the cover of my planner might not always be as pleasing as we would like but we get to choose what happens on the inside!
