Losing Myself....

There is a song that says, "Finding myself at a loss for words, and the funny thing is.... it's okay."

That song has always been one of my favorites, but lately I have ached for the "it's okay" part to be true within my heart...

Who am I? What are my desires? What are my strengths, gifts, talents? What are my interest? What are my dreams????

I forgot the sound of my own laughter.....
             I forgot what things I liked and disliked......
                         I forgot why I was even "here".........

LOST


DEFINED:
1. no longer possessed or retained.


2. no longer to be found.

3. having gone astray or missed the way; bewildered as to place, direction, etc.

4. not used to good purpose, as opportunities, time, or labor; wasted: a lost advantage.

5. being something that someone has failed to win.

6. ending in or attended with defeat.

7. destroyed or ruined.

8. preoccupied; rapt.

9. distracted; distraught; desperate; hopeless.

Not a very pretty place to be............. is it?

But, my VERSE... you know the verse that keeps me going .............kept pounding in my head ...........and in my heart.....

"For she is clothed with STRENGTH and DIGNITY, and LAUGHS with NO FEAR of the future." Proverbs 31:25

That verse........ Oh, the sweet WORDS from our Heavenly Father! That verse is precious, because when I lost myself, my Lord reminded me of WHO I AM IN HIM!!!

I am STRONG!  I have purpose! I have value!
"I am woman"....okay..... I couldn't resist that one!

But, only..........THROUGH CHRIST!  amen

  1. Oh Robyn, we all feel that way from time to time but thank the good Lord that he never changes His love and faith in us. He knows we are just jars of clay and he will never give up working on us.
