beautifully dignified

"The power of Christ upon a woman's life ought to make her different than any ordinary, emotion-driven woman around her.....A woman who comes to know Jesus Christ is given the opportunity to live out beautiful femininity in the fullness of what God intended it to be - radiant, rock solid, and reigned by the Spirit of God..... We may be women with a great capacity to feel, but when we look to our Father to be our rock and fortress, a shelter to whom we continually resort, the One who is mighty and victorious in and through us, we are also women with a great capacity to go throughout each day with steadfast joy, unwavering peace, and a gentle calm that truly makes us different - and yet beautifully dignified - women of the Almighty God."

bigger than you will ever know

Sometimes I get upset that no one seems to care about what is going on in my life, what problems I'm facing, and what I need prayer for. But so what, big deal. That only causes me to think about me more.....which ends up making me more miserable and upset than before. Though it is extremely difficult, not our natural tendency, and no one else seems to do it, we need to constantly focus outwards.....on others. Everyone has a crazy life, everyone has problems, everyone needs prayer. I am not special..... but I should treat others in a way that makes them feel special. I want to be the type of person that I would want to meet. I want to be a someone who makes someone else look forward to tomorrow. Today will never come again; what kind of impact can one word of encouragement, one smile, one act of kindness make on a person? A big one. Bigger than you'll ever know.

Hello all! I'm sorry I missed the last Wordless Wednesday. I was gone visiting Cedarville University all day.....and I mean ALL DAY. Was gone from 5:30am-10:00pm. Anyways, yesterday I got to do a bit of doodling. I tried a different style than what I normally do. If you visit my blog Live for Today Art, you can see some of my older drawings in my typical style. I really like this new style. It has a lot of expression and it looks Disney-ish. What do you all think?
