Assessment

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)

So true!

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

Lysa TerKeurst in the Studio

Tonight you'll have the chance to join myself and Lysa TerKeurst, author of Unglued, for a live Unglued webcast! We'll be taking your questions and comments on how to handle when you become "unglued" and how to make wise decisions when our emotions get the best of us. Lysa joined me in the studio last week to give us advice on what to do when you become "Unglued." Listen to how she reacts to certain circumstances below and let us know what situations in life get you "unglued"!

Why Lysa wrote Unglued:

Pretending that everything's alright, "Walking Plastic Versions of Godliness"

What to do when you feel like you're not being heard and advice on holding your tongue "our goal is not perfection, but imperfect progress"

When the last straw breaks...

When to say "no" if your cup is full and dealing with the guilt:

What to do when you take on too much, "where there is a lack of rest, there is an abundance of stress"

On forgiving ourselves and others:

When things don't go as planned

About feeling inadequate

Dealing with criticism

Coping with loss
