Letting Go and Letting God Show Off

Posted in Spirituality tagged , at 10:22 pm by Katie

Oh, hello blog…long time, no see.

I could write a crazy long update-esque post with all the crazy things that have been going on in my life.  But let’s face it…if you are reading this blog, you are probably friends with me on Facebook or following me on Twitter, so you know as much as you need to (probably more than you’d ever want to, honestly) know.

I do really want to blog more, write more, and read more as this summer progresses.  I took a step in that tonight, taking refuge in an extremely comfy chair in Starbucks at Sandhills with my Bible, my journal, and One Thousand Gifts.  After a small blessing of not one, but two tiramisu cake pops, courtesy of the sweet, sweet barista who told me I needed another one because the first didn’t have its’ decoration, I settled in.  For two hours, I soaked up the refreshing words of my Father, which was just what I needed.

I want to share the verse and quote that touched me the most in my time tonight before I try to get some sleep:

2 Corinthians 12:10 – “…for Christ’s sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.  For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

The next time you have a dream you think you can’t achieve or you’re tempted to paint a perfect picture of yourself on Facebook, remember it’s the weaknesses, the imperfections – the things you can’t accomplish on your own – that give God the opportunity to show off in your life.” – Shannon Primicerio, She Seeks.

Good words for a girl who is all about chasing some perfection.
