Honesty

I am studying the book, “What Happens When Women Say Yes to God,” by Lisa Terkeurst. I have been giving God my day and trying not to control it.

I read that each day God has an assignment for us and we can choose to accept it or fight against it. Yesterday, I told God I gave him my day and would accept whatever assignment he gave me.

Little did I know it would involve:

  • Coke spilled on the bottom of the oven
  • Which later burned and smoked
  • Changing diapers
  • Sewing up the pants on the Ken Barbie doll
  • “Thumbelina”
  • Getting the biggest compliment ever
  • Followed by being told I was doing it wrong, no matter how I tried
  • Hearing the pain in my granddaughter’s voice when she talked about a girl in preschool who told her she was not skinny enough.

I prayed, “Help me, Jesus!” when she asked, “Grandma do you think I’m skinny?”

I replied, “I think you are perfect because that is the way God made you.”

She beamed.

That answer definitely came from Jesus. He was known for being honest, impartial, and truthful.

Mark 12:14, “‘Teacher,’ they said, ‘we know how honest you are. You are impartial and don’t play favorites. You teach the way of God truthfully…'” NLT

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for the reminder to get my worth from you, not from compliments or criticisms. Help me to be truthful and honest with my granddaughter, while at the same time pointing her to you.

Amen
