A challenge from Melissa Taylor

A challenge from Melissa Taylor

I am a follower of Jesus Christ

I wonder why Jesus chose me to believe in Him

I hear that voice that tells me I am not good enough.

I see the leaves on the trees blowing outside the window and a blue sky, we have had so much rain and I love the rain, but I feel happy that there is a blue sky today

I want to be the woman God wants me to be.

I am an optimist sometimes but I get depressed when people are so cruel at other times and when I am cruel to myself.

I pretend that I will finish the race someday, I want to race in an Iron man competition and I imagine crossing the finish line someday and running through the gate :D

I feel like I am not good enough.

I touch the keys on my computer and the quilt that my friend made for me.

I worry about the bills and our financial problems and that even if I was able to find another job I would not be able to keep it, I will fail... (I know the Bible verses but have trouble controlling the thoughts)

I cry a lot.

I am wishing that I could be strong

I understand that bad things happen and I hope that God will use it all for His good and then it will all be worth it!

I say "thank you" and "I love you" all the time... and I say "I'm sorry" when things are not my fault sometimes too.

I dream about being stronger physically, spiritually, emotionally...

I try very hard to make everyone happy.

I hope that I am enough, that I will hear "Well done, good and faithful servant"

I am wishing that I could write " I am a beautiful princess because I am the daughter of the king of kings"

I am Keri, Karen Lynn Minnick

Keri! Awesome job and I'm so proud of you for doing this. It was so much harder than I thought it would be when I challenged myself to complete those thoughts. But we did it and today I will pray for you and all that burdens your heart. I'll also praise God for you and your love and trust in Him! He chose you because you are His child and you are so dearly loved! And beautiful too!

Wow! Much of your list reminds me of me! You did a great job of being open and honest.

This wasn't the easiest thing to complete...but you did it!
