Hey there. I missed y'all! Ugh, I missed talking to y'all so much!
Nevertheless, I am back with a bang! Along with my enthusiastic exclamation marks!!! ☺
Okay, okay...I'll get on with it.
Jamie Grace (Google the name; she's dope) turned 26 today. A few days ago, she announced a project to commemorate her birthday: 91 songs for 91 days. (Can you guess why she chose the number "91?" You are a genius if you guess correctly!)
Writing 91 songs in as many days is no joke. Hence, when I heard about the project, I applauded her audacity and tenacity. I still do.
Fast forward to this morning in church (no, I don't go to Seventh Day Adventist church, and yes, we have church tomorrow morning too) when the Lord dropped an idea in my heart.
There are 36 days left in this year, why not write a blog post for each day?
Immediately I received this, I smiled. The Lord knew me too well.
Since I was given the go-ahead to revisit cutieforjesus.com, I have been avoiding writing. I am not sure I can fully explain why. I have my theories, of course. (ahem, go to @cutie4jesus on Instagram to find out more.)
Seriously, I did basically everything else. (Can you tell what else I have been doing? FYI, yes is the safe answer.)
It is while writing this post that I realize what the 36-day challenge is for. Or more specifically, who it is for. You guessed it! Me.
My fellow cuties, this challenge is God saying to me: "I see you staying down because you are afraid to get up. So GET YOUR BUTT UP, and while you're at it, do 36 squats!"
While 36 squats is not really a bucket-list item for me, I am reminded that I have a Father who loves and sees me.
Maybe you haven't had something eventful happen to you recently that reminds you that God loves and sees you. That's okay.
As you commute to work/school/home/church over the next few days, take note of the position of the sun/moon in the sky.
If the heavenly lights that God created won't leave you but follow you everywhere you go, what makes you think God ever would?
He would never stop seeing you. You just need to keep looking up (literally, if that's what it takes to not forget).
