Who are you?

Really, who are you?  Think about it for a few moments. If you were going to guess how people view you, who are you?  Our view of our self is NOT what others actually see.  What do they see?

You are a pure reflection of your thoughts. They actually affect your facial expressions, your mannerisms and your speech. So who are you?
You are a product of your thinking... describe yourself by describing how you think.  
"I am a rose colored glasses person. Negativity is not my way."
Hey wait I say it is not there, BUT it is there.  WHY?  Because I have negative thoughts through out the day.  I worry and I think of things that I should not dwell on. Even though I do not describe myself that way... that is how people see me if they are around me.  I don't think they do, but they do. I worry and try to hide it behind those rose colored glasses. 

We never truly see ourselves as others see us. We have this "boxed image" of what we want others to see that we have created in our minds to represent us.  Sorry to tell you, that is NOT what they see.  That is the picture you have created in your mind of who you are that you see, but not what others see.

Begin by eliminating one bad habit and replacing it with a good one. For me it is to work on the worry element. I have begun banishing it by immediately reciting from Paul's words. I want to learn to leave my worries with my prayers... for everything...not just now and then. This is a new habit I am trying to instill in my life.

Life is full of change and change is nothing more than change. How we react to it and view it determines if we see it as something of value or not.  As a believer we must recognize all change is from God and we must allow Him to do His perfect work in us.  We may not react at first in a positive way, but that is where prayer must come in to help us refocus and put Him first. Thoughts of heaven and our Father and what is perfect and right in His eyes. If that is our focus change can happen.  

Through the good and the bad, the happy and the sad, through illness and health, through laughter and tears, 'my help cometh from the Lord, which made Heaven and earth.'
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things" Phil 4:8

What a lovely way to begin this beautiful Sunday morning. I could reach for a thousand words and never have said - in thought or beauty - what you have said. I will think of these things and thank you, thank you!
