What Makes Me Faithfully Beautiful

faithfully beautiful

What makes me faithfully beautiful is my want and need for a servant’s heart.

I’m taking a minute this morning before my crazy day gets crazy. The kids are off at my mom’s and I’m sifting through e-mails trying to plan for the day. I saw this faithfully beautiful sticker that Shannan sent to me, while I was pouring my cup of hot!! coffee and wanted to jot down some thoughts before this me-time moment slipped away.

Shannan is one of the first people who welcomed me into this small, big world of mama bloggers. She is sweet and lovely and I’m so happy to be sharing her message through this post.

For as long as I can remember, my happiness derives from making others happy. My greatest joy is seeing others smile from something I have done for them. It’s probably my personality, shaped by my birth order of being a first born, but mostly it’s a quality that’s been shaped by my personal faith and love for Jesus.

In my mind, what makes me faithfully beautiful is my want and need for a servant’s heart. To be able to emulate even a sliver of Jesus’ servant heart, makes me feel whole.

I try to be mindful of that, especially on the long days where I feel like I’m being pulled every which way. And there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done for everyone. It’s easy to get lost in the blur of working and parenting and losing sight of what truly matters; what truly makes me feel faithfully beautiful.

While it’s definitely not easy every day, it really is the driving force behind who I am as a mom, wife, friend, daughter. And a pillar of foundation in my faith.

What makes you faithfully beautiful?

To be better than what we are today. To love one another more than we do today. (2)

    Thank you. I really needed this reminder today. And what an incredible thought “What makes me faithfully beautiful?” I believe my answer would be much in line with yours. God has blessed my family in recent years by helping us discover and chase after what we value most in life, and I feel faithfully beautiful when I can help inspire and guide others in that journey, and discovering a fuller life for their families.

    Thank you for your words.

    This is beautiful! I think what makes me #faithfullybeautiful is when I just let go and let the Lord put me where He needs me to be and let the Holy Spirit use me to help others however He needs me to. I recently had a great experience of letting the Holy Spirit speak through me and give advice to a dear friend of mine. In letting Him do the talking, I realized He was speaking to me, too. Like, whoa! Lesson learned! I couldn’t help but laugh and think, “I see what you did there! And that’s why You’re God and I am not!”
