Assessment. You see this kind of thing rear it's ugly head during this time of year. As kids are going back to school, sometimes it becomes all about having the right clothes, and looking the right way to be successful.
Heard a pastor say this weekend, “You spend way too much energy obsessing over your assessment of other people’s assessment of you.” -Steven Furtick (Elevation Church)
I admit to you, I struggle with this big time. I spent many moments last week worrying about what I would wear and how I would look for the Unglued Women's Conference Webcast. I'm a radio girl, so most days I go to work wearing jeans with my hair in a ponytail. Camera ready was a whole different ballgame! So, I began obsessing worrying about how other's would assess me. It doesn't matter.
We can get so caught up in measuring up to everyone else, worrying if they think we’re good enough, but their opinion doesn’t matter. God's does. And when you're a child of His, he calls you beautiful. Even without makeup!
"The king is enthralled with your beauty; honor Him, for He is your Lord." -Psalm 45:11
